Knockout! Boxing Champion Manny Pacquiao Rebukes Obama’s Support For Gay-Marriage
Now fighting using the Sword of the Spirit
“Sanctify them by they truth: thy Word is truth.” (John 17:17)
Just as Saul’s life has been radically changed by Christ on that Damascus road, the pound per pound boxing champion of the world also clearly has encountered the Truth in God’s Word. Nothing is more important to him now more than the upholding of God’s Truth in His Word.
From The Christian Post -
Manny Pacquiao, Christian Filipino boxer and congressman, has reportedly disagreed with President Barack Obama‘s support of redefining marriage to include same-sex couples, and has insisted people should always put God’s word first.
After Obama vocalized that he was in support of gay marriage earlier this week, Pacquiao was adamant that the president had got it wrong. In an interview with the National Conservative Examiner while training in Los Angeles, Calif., Pacquiao spoke about the need for society to put “God’s words first.”
The boxer quoted Leviticus 20:13 when referring to the president’s decision to advocate for same-sex marriage.
“If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable,” Pacquiao told the Examiner. “They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”
However, Obama has attempted to explain his reasoning for supporting a redefinition of marriage, using the Golden Rule of loving your neighbor as justification for ignoring other verses condemning homosexuality in the Bible.
“Do unto others as you would have them do to you,” the president said in an ABC News report. “At a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.”
Read the Bible, “The Manual of Life”
While the 33-year-old boxer said he respected Obama, he told the Examiner that the president should read the bible or “manual of life” to better society.
“God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married, only if they so are in love with each other,” Pacquiao said. “It should not be of the same sex so as to adulterate the altar of matrimony, like in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah of Old.” - Source – The Christian Post

President Obama endorsed the right of same-sex couples to marry on Wednesday, a landmark pronouncement made in light of mounting pressure from gay right advocates. Obama became the first U.S. president to back the right of gay and lesbian couples to marry, a reversal from his own views as stated in the 2008 campaign, when he said he opposed same-sex marriage but favored civil unions as an alternative.
