Manny Pacquiao's Gay Marriage Stance Is Based On The Same Biblical BS That Inspires The Westboro Baptist Idiots

biblekingjames.jpg
No, I did not write the Bible.
Filipino boxer/congressman/Roman Catholic Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao's idiotic comments about why he opposes gay marriage are based on the same Biblical bullshit that inspires the lunatics at the Westboro Baptist Church to picket funerals. The overall theme: "fags" must die.

If you missed it, in response to President Barack Obama's announcement that he now "personally" supports gay marriage, Pacquiao told the National Conservative Examiner that he doesn't agree with the president. He then cited Leviticus 20:13, telling the publication that "if a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads" (see our post about 10 gays who could kick Manny's ass here).

We'd like to think "Pacman's" a slightly better human being than the WBC bozos, but his comments literally parrot the general message of Fred Phelps and his clan of kooks -- the WBC's web address is www.GodHatesFags.com, just to give you a small example.

We got to know the Phelps clan a little bit while working for the Voice's sister paper the Phoenix New Times. The hardest part about talking to seasoned homophobes -- from our experience -- is that they try to rationalize their ramblings by ending every other sentence with "ya' know?" As if we're going to agree that something as heinous as picketing the funeral of a 9-year-old girl is a good idea.

The group quotes, and quotes (and quotes) the same Bible verse Pacquiao cites as his Biblical reason for opposing gay marriage. The WBC, however, argues that all "fags" must die. Pacquiao, on the other hand, just quoted the Bible -- he didn't say he wanted to kill homosexuals. Regardless, it was incredibly stupid for Pacquiao to cite that particular passage when discussing gay marriage -- or anything.

One of the most despicable encounters we had with the WBC happened a few days after the shooting rampage in Tucson that nearly claimed the life of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords -- and did claim the lives of six people, including 9-year-old Christina Taylor Green.

We spoke to Shirley Phelps-Roper about the WBC's plan to picket the funerals of several of the victims. She told us the following (keep in mind, at the time of this interview, about a quarter of Giffords' skull had been removed and it wasn't clear whether she'd survive the bullet that went "through [her] brain"):

Shirley Phelps-Roper, a leader with the group, says she plans to hold a "God on the Corner" demonstration -- a play on the "Congress on the Corner" event held by Giffords on Saturday -- in protest to the "rotten rebels" who are destroying America.

"I'm over here laughing," a rambling and often-incoherent Phelps-Roper tells New Times. "You think you can run God off the corner with your stupid laws?"

Phelps-Roper even had the gall to make light of the injuries sustained by Giffords in the attack.

"She has the audacity to stand on the corner and talk about free speech? She should keep her lips off the Constitution," Phelps-Roper says, "and now she will keep her lips off it."

Phelps-Roper describes Giffords as an "arrogant pinhead who surrounds herself with fags and baby killers."

As for the alleged shooter, 22-year-old Jared Loughner, Phelps-Roper considers him a "tool of God" used to rid the earth of the "rotten rebels."

"God sent the shooter -- that guy's bat-shit crazy -- but god sent him," she says.

Phelps-Roper had some heinous things to say about [deceased federal Judge John Roll], as well.

She says, all federal judges should die after a judge in Baltimore, Maryland, ruled against her group in a free-speech case. She says all federal judges had a duty to stand up for free speech.

"That's why that judge is dead," Phelps-Roper says. "He doesn't care about free speech."

She says the group plans to protest his funeral, in addition to the funeral of 9-year-old Christina Green, who was killed in the attack. Phelps-Roper says she "look[s] forward to it."

Get the full story here.

We're not saying Pacquiao's as evil as the WBC jerks, but when you start talking about how homosexuals should die because the Bible says so, a comparison is going to be made.

As we've said in prior posts about Pacquiao's stupid comments, we've contacted his representatives four times now (two emails and two phone calls). We wanted to give him a chance to explain whether he really thinks homosexuals should be killed. We're yet to hear back.

LOL! God's word prevails...nothing wrong with Mr. Granville Ampong's article. It's just truth hurts. GOD DEFINES SAME SEX MAARIAGE AND THE PRACTICE OF HOMOSEXXUALITY IS AN ABOMINATION.

Wake up, faggots!

I think gays r making a big mistake to think that d verse is only 4 them, it is 4 everybody. There r those who does it (sex with same sex) 4 d sake of $ even though they r straight especially those who r in d porn industry.

There is no discrimination when it comes to marriage. All gays, lesbians and straights can marry d opposite sex, and all can not marry d same gender. D law is applied equally to all.

God is using this issue to let the whole world know where He stands regarding homosexuality. I am thrilled that the Leviticus 20:13 is being read by millions of people.  This is the truth! I would rather obey God than man.  God's wonderful plan really is amazing!!!! Yahooo!!!!

the guy didn't say it, all this hullaboo from a right wing christian wanabee journalist writing a misleading headline and misquoting pacquiao from EXAMINER, a site where all the aspiring writers post their columns [ credibility is the last thing this site has]. All you have to do is try reading this idiot GRANVILLE AMPONG's posts/columns and you will understand.  He even makes his headings sound like pacquiao and obama had a serious discussion about religion but what happened was just a meet and greet and photo op.

 Ro 1:20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. Ro 1:25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Ro 1:26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. Ro 1:27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

So, you folks think, I take it, that humans (you) should determine what is right and wrong, what is moral and immoral, and that it should change every year or every decade depending on how you feel.  In essence, any time something feels good, it should move from the 'bad' column to the "good" column.  If that's the case, probably best then to just toss the Bible into the ocean, yell to God that He does not exist and if He does, well you don't care.  That's called "free will" and you certainly can do that.  Every action has a reaction..

Pacquiao was never interviewed by Granville Ampong in the first place, making it to appear as if Manny quoted or say anything againts gays. All for the sake of media controversy which is a poor journalistic approach.

James King  definitely LOVES GAY GUYS. Sorry you got offended, but no one likes gays, unless you're a gay yourself. Mankind was not created to be gay, that's facts. Obviously to blame the Bible is the right thing..but the Bible is always the source of truth. If anything, it's the readers, or those who have no light, misinterpret it or either you just don't like the truth Mrs. King. To oppose the Bible is to be anti-Christ..atleast we know where you stand. ;D

What is the diff. with you people hurling insult against Pac without going out and find the truth if the man really said something,I pity this people who are ready to crucify manny for the word he never said,what makes you different now from the sinners,look at yourself in the mirror and ask youself:DID I REALLY HEARD OR SAW MANNY PAQUAIO SAID OR COMMENTED SUCH A THING"?.... A big problem with us human race,we evolve and it is year 2012 now but look how we think,how we instantly judge others without looking for the truth first....I pity this people!

Dude, Did you let Janet Napolitano know that Bill Clinton is dying ???According to this week's "Globe" checkout stand newspaper ( a most credible information source, don't you agree ? ) Secretary of State Hilary Rodham-Clinton has decided to go the way of the gay as soon as her philandering Willie is loaded up in the hearse. Can you believe that Hilary is a closet lesbian ? Good lord, what's next ?Sheriff Paul of Pinal is a damned homo - but a good Republican !!! WTF ?!?!Rush Limbaugh & Newt Gingrich are notorious corn-hole cronies. Janet Napolitano, director of Home-o-Land Security Agency, is so butch she pees standing up, while her lifelong love interest, Dora Schriro, sings Stand-By-Your-Man while lubing up Janet's favorite 12 horsepower vibrator for this evening's "adventures with the strap-on".Me ? The only time I ever bash a gay guy is when the bastard does up all my Meth, otherwise no problem.Now we have a four foot tall homophobic Filipino, who enjoys wrestling in his underwear with other mostly naked and sweaty guys until one or the other gets pinned or gets a hard-on, and then it's off to the showers for a little towel slapping and soap dropping. He calls himself "Pacman" ? Maybe his full name is "Pack It Up In There, Man".And then we come to history's all-time most insufferable homosexual of them all. A man who needs no introduction. The greatest homophobe there ever was. A guy who finds corn-holing an abomination...The One, The Only...God-All-Mighty.The God Dude spends an entire week setting up a solar system just so he can start up a family, because, I guess, even God-Dudes can get lonely. But God was conning all the other Cloud 9ers with this "family" routine. Adam... a single, perfectly formed ( read generously endowed ) male - naked as a motherfucker, left stashed down in the Garden of Eden ???Where I cum from, we didn't call that "having a family". We called that "GAY" !!!

I do have GAY FRIENDS and they are all well aware what they are doing is a SIN but most of them don't agree on SAME sex marriage. I did sleep with different women and still doing it once in awhile. We are all sinners. Like STVMD said "You accused pacquiao of judging but you yourself judged him right away". I dont think Pacquiao hates GAY, he loves GAYWEATHERs.

If you are a Bible believing person then instead of bashing on Pacquiao why not embrace this truth and turn away from this sin. It is so easy to put the blame on somebody else upon realizing you committed a grave sin against God. If you cannot stomach and fully against what Pacquiao cited against homosexuality then you are a practical atheist. May God have mercy on your soul.

Quoting the Bible is to let the Bible speak for itself. The Bible is God's word. The Bible condemns same sex marriage, lesbianism and homosexuality from the Old to New Testament. Why persecute Pacquiao if he only cited a portion of the Bible. If you are totally against it then burn your Bible. So that in the end God will throw your soul in the eternal lake of fire. God hated  homosexuality even from the very beginning; He flattened Sodom and Gomorrah on fire because of this abominable sin. Go ahead, turn your back on God and be damned eternally!

It is outstanding how someone can judge and say malicious things about a person who doesn't agree with their own opinion. If Manny is against gay marriage so be it, it doesn't give you the right to compare him to radical Christian groups. If so you also support the notion that all Muslims are radical and want to destory or convert everyone who does not share their beliefs. If you have the freedom to write such a slanderous blog, Manny also has the right to state his opinion on gay marriage. God bless you and do some soul searching, it is not what goes in your mouth that hurts, it's what comes out.

i dont know if you´re gay and or you just hate someone who is against gay marriages/relationship..not all of us, i am a roman catholics, are up against it...human laws prohibits gay marriages only in some countries but try to understand that in a world of religion especially those who believes in bible or koran they will never tolerate gay marriages, but that doesnt mean that they hate homosexuality, they just bound by the rulesof God as you are bound to your belief. Respect not hate is the right word maybe. And your right Pacquiao lives in a third world country and some of our people are starving but try to visits our country. we are very hospitable people, i will assure you that even we´re poor nation you will always have full stomach...
