Pacquiao On Obama: “God’s Words First”
[ Life]

Famed Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao–who is also a congressman in the Philippines–has had a strong reaction to Obama’s recent announcement that he supports same-sex marriage.

During an interview last week with the National Conservative Examiner, Pacquiao said, “God’s words first … obey God’s law first before considering the laws of man.”

Pacquiao apparently sees the president’s campaign to rally the LGBT community as an attack on Christian morals and values and is urging everyone–the president included–to go back to the bible for guidance on the matter. He says same-sex marriage is an abomination and should be stopped at the highest level of the government.

“God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married, only if they so are in love with each other,” the boxer said.

The media attention Obama has garnered with the announcement isn’t sitting well with some conservatives, especially after an edition of Newsweek was released showing the president with a rainbow halo over his head with the headline, “The First Gay President’.

The president has had his share of supporters, however, and possibly even more so now that he has formally announced his support of the gay community. Andrew Sullivan, who is openly gay, wrote the Newsweek story and had this to say on his blog:

“Let me simply say: I think of all the gay kids out there who now know they have their president on their side. I think of Maurice Sendak, who just died, whose decades-long relationship was never given the respect it deserved. I think of the centuries and decades in which gay people found it impossible to believe that marriage and inclusion in their own families was possible for them, so crushed were they by the weight of social and religious pressure. I think of all those in the plague years shut out of hospital rooms, thrown out of apartments, written out of wills, treated like human garbage because they loved another human being. I think of Frank Kameny. I think of the gay parents who now feel their president is behind their sacrifices and their love for their children.”

Now even Pacquiao has an opinion on Obama’s stance on gay marriage. Doesn’t this guy have a blood test to take for his next fight?(image) 49 minutes ago via HootSuite ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Hey Pacquiao, instead of taking on Obama, why don’t you fight Mayweather instead? That’s all anyone cares about. http://t.co/RaokjW6Z(image) 2 hours ago via Tweet Button ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

    Hey writer why are you so bias against pacman? Why do you only post STUPID comments STUPID people tweet? We all know pacman WILL take the test when Gayweather grows some balls to step up and fight pacman…

    • jim Slatin

      This poster is obviously very uneducated. And by the way, Pacman would get ko’d by Mayweather if they fought.
      Need I say more?

      • Ernie Adams

        If Mayweather can’t KO Miguel Cotto he won’t be knocking out Pacquiao.bet on that matter of fact he may not be able to win the fight let alone knock him out.

        • Ray

          Good point Ernie!

        • brooklyn

          thats not true because he almost lost to beat Marquez this last time they went, and Mayweather destroyed Marquez.

          • hfortu

            Have you ever compared Marquez face after the Mayweather fight with that after the Pacman fight? Who do you think did the more damage. Manny did.

      • rob van damn

        yup just wait til he posts bail right? cause that’s all mayflower ever guarantees. screw the testing crap, when is this guy gonna stop letting a girl beat his ass in the judicial system. tell you what when he can learn the value of letting go a cell phone his ex had then maybe people might remember that he also on his spare time likes to duck real fighters like pacquiao.

      • Luis

        Ko’d? I don’t think so. Mayweather doesn’t have knockout power, never has never will. That’s not his game. This fight should’ve happened at least 2 years ago. We should be talking about the 3rd fight by now.

      • ralph

        Pacquiao is a real man, and he has mare common sence than your President, and everyone else who support same sex marriage. It wasn’t man who destroyed Sodom and Gommorah, it was God himself: because of Homosexuality. Pacquiao is a real man, a family man. And it’s not Pacquiao that does’nt want to fight, it’s Mayweather that’s making al the excuses. So get your facts straight. And as for Obama, I hope he loses in november because ofr his stupidity.

      same sex marriage is madness and anyone supporting same sex marriage should check his/her sanity and that include President Barack Obama. what struggle is he talking about, what fight. some day and very soon, America will be forced to accept human- Animal marriage in the name of struggle.

  • Ernesto C

    Isn’t there enough things to worry about in the Philippines than to start worrying about what our president of the United States has to think, try to fix the corruption in your own government in your own country before putting your 2 cents into our country. If you feel you have to much time on your hands maybe you should be looking at your schedule and picking out a date for the perfect fight night with Mayweather.

    • nashingun

      Ernesto C,
      it was the EXAMINER that seek pacquiao’s opinion idiot!
      stop being narrow minded freak.
      and FYI Pres. Aquino is already cleaning the systems of the previous corrupt officials starting from ex president gloria arroyo who’s now in jail being tried with 4 counts of corruption cases, also the supreme court justice who is another corrupt official needed to be removed. btw hows yours? obama aside from burying you of 15 Trillion debt? what did he do to the 700 billion stimulus package? have you heard of them lately? i think we are shifting places, your country becoming the most corrupt officials.

    • kevin

      obama is out of line going against god’s will and its a wander our economy and people are suffering

    • Ernesto Gay

      Don’t you have work to do? Or are you one of those unemployed Americans that benefitted from the approval of same sex marriage? Pacquiao was asked for an opinion, he didn’t seek it. And tell your homeboy Floyd to give his ass some time to heal after serving 90 days in prison. He’ll sure get an ass whooping inside…

      L. Hill have you ever met “god” in person? Which of the 43 gods have you met?
      You’re obviously “nothing” and more likely non successful. Need I say more mr/miss sheep?

      • Chava

        jim s, I think it’s about time you step reacting to people’s comments. It just shows how stupid and heretic you are. You must be pagan or something. I think once in your life do something beneficial like helping or loving your fellowmen you dumb prick.

    Whats next? Humans marrying animals?

    • jim S.

      Really? i don’t embrace the entire bibleand I have both peace of mind and I’m also very successful.
      I don’t pray to any of the 43 gods either. Need I say more?

      • Pal

        Jim S. has some serious issues to be on here! First off if your so successful why are you on here all morning, you sound like a loser to me, like the kid who wasn’t picked to play on the baseball team. If your gay, fine.But you fail to realize that the USA was founded in a Christian and Jewish tradition. If you want to get married to another guy, then move to another country. And take Obama with you! Get a life! Also the only reason that people like Jay-Z is backing Obama, is to get his name out on the media. He doesn’t care one bit about gay people getting married. He’s got a hot wife,and I’m sure he’s really cares. So if your against same sex marriage that makes you a bigot, I don’t think so. I have gay friends and love them for who they are, and all of them say they don’t care about getting married. Once again Obama is taking the focus off the real issues! Worst President ever! I rather have Jimmy Carter.

  • Genesis 19:

    Quotations:
    “Saying that the last recorded acts of the Sodomites — the demands for same-gender sex — are proof that they were destroyed for homosexuality is like saying that a condemned man cursing his guards on the way to his execution is being executed for cursing the guards. Sodom was judged worthy of destruction before the incident with Lot and the angels.” Inge Anderson 1
    “The Genesis passage is very clear, that the sin of Sodom that brought on the destruction of the city was indeed linked to homosexuality.” R. Albert Mohler 2
    “The activities in Sodom were to homosexuality what rape is to heterosexuality.” Anon
    Interpretations of Genesis 19:
    Genesis 19 is one of the most commonly cited of the half-dozen anti-homosexual “clobber” passages in the Bible.
    The term “Sodomite” was originally used to refer to an inhabitant of Sodom — a city which was located somewhere on a plain in Canaan. It later became a legal term to refer to criminal sexual acts. It is now commonly used, at least on the Internet, airwaves and other media, by religious conservatives as a derogatory synonym for a lesbian or gay person — and occasionally for a bisexual.

    Pacman is a pussy. He knows it, everyone knows it. Keep avoiding Floyd til he’s 40 and he’d still KO him.

    • jerrymagoo@aol.com

      Poor Jim S. You sound like an Agnostic, successful Gay that focuses on Pacman comments and verbiage instead of looking at the fact about the Gay Marriage issue. Our US government was founded under GOD. Need I say more????????

      • mark

        WHO IS GOD? the bible and the governments of the entire world are made of humans or scholars, as they call themselves, who believe in what they think is best for humanity. it is the 20th century and we have evolved and this old lie still lurks at this day and age. who cares about gay marriage, UNEMPLOYMENT and hunger are more important, otherwise the next news will be HUMAN eating HUMANS!!

        • Joe_W

          Exactly! That God is still that SAME GOD, past-present-and-future. He will continue to exist and will continue with His work… He does exist, that’s why he continues to bugger the likes of you who refuse to believe in his dominion.

          Nothing wrong with this world under His dominion, however, there are “radicals” who think they know everything and think that they’re success is all theirs — assuming it is, those lurking hell are with you and are looking forward to having you with them, down there, for all eternity.

          I don’t have a problem with Gay people. I understand if a man is feminish or a woman is boyish, however, to marry both men or both women is utterly stupid, sick, and requires medical attention. They are unloved people. I WILL PUT NO BIAS to those who think their straight, because they too, have their own lacking in society… there’s just too many opinion brought about by hate, what’s really needed is constructive, loving criticism.

          I am not against homosexuals however, I will NOT ALLOW them to marry if I had that power. They can be bold, flirt, and express themselves if they want, but I will not let them see that marrying the same sex is correct.

          Because it will never be.

  • SCOTT GRIGO

    WHY DO GAYS CARE…MARRIAGE IS A UNION UNDER GOD BETWEEN MAN AND WOMAN…GOD DOES NOT RECOGNIZE GAYS BECAUSE OF THER SIN. SO DOES NOT MATTER UNLESS THEY REPENT AND DO WHATS RIGHT UNDER GODS SIGHT…NOT JUST WHAT MAKES THEM FEEL GOOD…RIGHT DOWN THE TOILET THAT WAY.

    • jim S.

      which of the 43 gods are you referring to Scott? I have spoken to god recently and he says he likes ALL humans. Even the bible repeats gods thoughts; I think that this is your opinion only!

    WAKE UP PEOPLE!! Obama is talking about “equal rights” not about changing religious believes. America is suppose to be about equality and have laws that are separate between church and state. If you study the bible, then you should already know this. What is legal or illegal does not change my faith or beliefs in my god. Also, Pac beats people up for a living, how is that putting “gods words first?”

  • http://webpronews anna

    America use to be the leader in the world. Now America with Obama as President it trying to change laws just to get votes. America is the new Soddam and Gomorah just as someone already stated. When a Nation turns its back on God and all what the Bible teaches then the Nation will surely fall. America needs leaders to stand up and reject what Obama stands for. This nation has gone the way of everyting that is against God. Money and Power has corrupted this Countries leaders. This nation is taking God out of everything. Lets lift up a standard and say we are One Nation Under God. Pray for this Country ad the world.Paquiao is right.

    most of this person against ‘pacman’ is unGod MINDED,why not againts gay marriage instead of manny’.

  • Eric Fungula

    The Bible teaches us to love our neighbors as we do ourselves. Now in the case of same-sex marriage should we not show the same love to our neighbors? Every person deserves to be treated fairly. If we cannot come to an agreement on this issue based upon our religious beliefs, perhaps in the eyes of the human rights maybe we could come to an agreement with President Obama’s decision to show his support for same-sex marriage. After all the Bible also teaches us not to be the judge of our brother’s transgression, and to leave all judgment’ into the hands of the God.

  • stevinjohnson

    It is commanded by God to follow the law of men, but if the law of men contradict the Law of God then the Law of God shall prevails. The Law of God is supreme than any other laws of men on earth. The Law of God are written in the Bible. Pacman is right.

  • Dan

    I always find it very interesting that all the commenters on someone else mentioning God, all speak as an authority, with NO real knowledge of God, the Bible or most other religious relevant material.
    It is the same with gays & lesbians, they just spout from their mouth what they would LIKE the Bible to say, or God to be, or for God to look like, and they speak foolishly. They speak without ever reading the subject material or understanding what was written by Moses and prophets who spoke direct to and from God.
    THese people speak about the way they would LIKE things to be, with no regard to reality. They can be gay if they want, they can practice homesexuality if they want, they can do any other sins they choose, then simply cannot do that AND be acceptable to God.
    They need to simply say “I do not know anything about God or what God wants me to do. I choose to live this way, and I will live with the consequences.” In the long run, their words are not going to mean anything anyway. If God does not agree with them, they will see the fiery pit in Hades waiting for Judgment. If they are right, they will be in Hades in Paradise waiting to go to Heaven with Jesus. What they “SAY” will have nothing to do with that final result.

    I have been a fan of Manny for a long time and greatly appreciate his accomplishments in a variety of fields. Manny could have played it safe and stayed out of this controversy and likely no one would have noticed. After all, he is a boxer and citizen of another country. But he chose to be a Christian first and stand for what is right. I liked him before and admire him now. He manned up. From now on he is Manly Manny in my book!

    The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. If you don’t fear God, you will think and act in ways that are foolishness. Most of the world’s population is going to Hell, according to Jesus, “Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction and many therin that go. But narrow is the path that leads to life and few there be that find it.” There are far more fools than there are wise. It is not popular to stand for righteousness, but that’s O.K. Who would you rather approve of you? The Lord? or obama?
