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.”

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

    What can be more disgusting than a male penis inserted inside another, male’s anal opening? Wonder why? That’s how gays “make love” and display physical intimacy. Is that normal, both mentally, emotionally, and spiritually — NO!

    Gays will not deny this… that’s how they do it and they KNOW it!

    Who really gives a rats ass what this Manny guy thinks. He is from and a citizen of the Phillipines which is not a US State or Territory. the Press needs to focus on American issues and what the citizens thinks. Too many non citizens mouth off at something that is not of their concern. Pa attention to their own people and butt out of our aaffairs.

    Equality ought to be based on sound moral principles. We have to respect gays because they are also human beings, it is true. But issues concerning human acts of gays need to be qualified whether they don’t go against Divine Laws and Natural Laws which are the basis of all human laws. Natural and Divine Laws mandate that marriage is for a man and a woman for the purpose of procreation and propagation of the human specie. The act of same sex marriage definitely violates this.

    Ro 1:22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools
    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.

    The bible speaks about Jesus as the Word of God, while people who lack knowledge,refer to the bible as the word of God.The bible was designed to lead us to God, this is why they were placed in hotel rooms over the world.After coming to know God, we are expected to have a relationship with the Holy Spirit in order to know right from wrong.For example in Acts15 verses 20and29,and Acts21:25,James, the fleshly brother of Jesus suggests that they should write to non Jews who has accepted Jesus,advising them that they should stay away from strangled animals and blood among other things.In the old testament, the bible says to the Jews that they should kill an animal, let the blood flow back to the earth before eating it.Because of this,if an animal was accidentially strangled and the blood had not had a chance to flow out of that animal, it was also not to be eaten.In Deut.14:21 the bible says,”Ye shall not eat of any thing that dies of itself:thou shall give it unto the stranger that is in thy gates, that he may eat it;or thou may sell it unto an alien, for thou are an holy people unto the Lord.”
    Clearly, this verse proves that the eating restrictions were meant only for Israel and those who were having the discussion in the book of Acts were not aware of what the scripture said at the time, and still says in the bible.
    It is for this and many other reasons that the bible says that the New Covenant is about the Spirit and that it is the Spirit to teach us about the things of God.We have been assuming for quite a while that we must read the bible and do what is says.If we read carefully we will see that God wants to have a personal relationship with all believers in order to teach them how they must live.Some of us can do certain things that others cannot do.This is why the bible says that one man eats and is happy while another eats and is damned.One man esteems one day above the rest while another man esteems every day the same.Rom.2:14-15 makes the point that the gentile believer is a “law unto himself” and that it is the Spirit inside of him to make him know through his conscience and his thoughts, wheather he is right or wrong. Jesus “abolished in His flesh, the law of commandments, contained in ordinances” and so it is the one who replaces Jesus, the Holy Spirit, we must depend upon.As Jesus is the Word of God, so also the Holy Spirit is the Word of God, remember they are one and they do not make mistakes as we have seen that James made by his remark.
    Stick to boxing Mannie and leave preaching to those whom God calls to do so.

    Mr. Obama supporting homosexuals isn’t so bad, after all he needs to support someone. He surely doesn’t support the working poor or middle class. He only caters to his big money backers in Hollywood, on Wall Street and the news media. He naturally winks at the Wall Street guys just to let them know he has to talk badly about them even though they shovel him money.

    1. If you believe that there is an invisible man in the sky, who does magical things, then you are just a primitive — so count yourself as one of the ordinary, common, unoriginal people, whose life is the same as 99.9% … and just a waste of time. What losers.

    2. READ YOUR HISTORY: The United States WAS NOT founded on any religion at all. In fact, Article 11 of the Treaty of Tripoli states:

    Art. 11. As the GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS NOT, IN ANY SENSE, FOUNDED ON THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

    This treaty was actually READ ON THE FLOOR OF THE UNITED STATES SENATE ON JULY 7, 1797, passed by a UNANIMOUS VOTE, and was proudly signed by President John Adams.

    The FICTION that the United States was founded “under god” or any stupidity like that, is just something ignorant religious people repeat to each other like parrots. It is simply FALSE.

    3. Pacquiao couldn’t count to 4 on two hands! Why does anybody give a $hit what he has to say about anything — he’s an uneducated primitive. What a moron. Pacquiao says, “God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married, only if they so are in love with each other.”

    NOWHERE in the Bible does it say that! Nowhere. In the Old Testament, the men had many wives!!!!! And, once again, NOWHERE IN THE BIBLE are there ANY directions to what constitutes a LEGAL MARRIAGE, or what motives for marriage are acceptable or unacceptable. None of that is in the Bible.

    Pacquiao is a Boxer … an idiot, a primitive! He must have made up his own religion, because there certainly is noting in the Bible that supports any of the things he says.

    I simply cannot believe anyone gives a wild $hit what Manny Pacquiao thinks about gay marriage!!! What next … we ask Pacquiao about foreign trade? The economy? The correct cadence for poetry? How ’bout his favorite opera?

    And … while the Bible says it is an Abomination for man to lie with man, NOWHERE does it mention that Women shall not lie with women!!! So, lesbianism is not prohibited in the Bible ANYWHERE!!! [Sounds sort of wild … like to get between a couple of lesbians sometime!]

    So, there is absolutely NO BASIS for the claim that homosexuality is forbidden by the Bible. Although male homosexuality is mentioned, lesbianism is not.

    And … NOWHERE does Jesus mention Homosexuality!!! NOWHERE. If this was such an important aspect of Christianity or Christ’s teachings — if this was something that God was actually concerned with — don’t you think he would have mentioned it at some point? Once even?

    The fact that Jesus didn’t have ANYTHING to say about homosexuality speaks volumes about its unimportance to God.

    So, all of you people who are obsessed with homos, and/or what they’re doing, should go see a shrink … because you have some weird stuff going on in your head about sex. You need psychological help on several levels.
