Manny Pacquiao rekindled the fire that got him in hot water last month when it was alleged that he was quoted mentioning Leviticus in the bible that condemns homosexuality and that homosexuals should be put to death. It turned out that it was the interviewer who injected the verse in print and apologized.
An interview with USA Today has resurrected the issue simply because Manny Pacquiao was asked about his stance on gay marriage. His response was this:
“No, I don’t support gay marriage. I do not agree with that, but I am not condemning gay people … but what I oppose is the sin they commit.”
There is probably going to be another firestorm after this comment. He should have just simply declined to answer the question.
Manny Pacquiao is scheduled to fight Timothy Bradley on June 9, 2012.
