Philippine Boxer Manny Pacquiao Against Discrimination Legislation

The Philippine senator has voiced opposition to anti-discrimination bill 1271.

Boxing champion and Philippine Senator Manny Pacquiao argued against Senate Bill 1271—a proposal to protect people from discrimination based on sexuality, gender identity, or the clothes that they wear—on Monday.

The bill was tabled by Senator Risa Hontiveros but received objections from Pacquiao.

“Even in the Bible, we read that the woman should wear women’s [clothing]; and the man, for men’s wear,” Pacquiao reportedly said. “That’s what I believe.”

Pacquiao said cross-dressing may be used to “commit fraud,” according to GMA Online, and he cited the case of Jennifer Laude, a transgender woman who was killed by a US Marine n 2014.

Pacquiao was heavily criticized in February 2016 after saying homosexuals were “worse than animals,” he later apologized, but reiterated his opposition to same-sex marriage.

he got punch too many time in the head and his brain still swollen so sad

So, his response shows that there is a need for protection. No harm having the protection bill in place and not needing it.

Hardly difficult for an opposition politician making this point.

But will the electorate empathise? Unlikely if minorities cling to minority websites.

Fighting is nature of man
Manny Pacquiao must show that he is a man , we want to watch him naked ( without protection) fighting with 100 hungry wild LIONs, Crocodiles, Snake, etc
We want to watch him bloody and see his bravery

Gays have no contradictive with all Religions verses
The only thing is that Gay do not know to answer or to interprete Religions verses.

you also must able to calculate that Manny Pacquiao is minority

Senator is not seat for man

we want to watch Manny Pacquiao show that he is man, by shot by bullets.
we want to watch his strength.

If you Gay Read carefully,
there is not Religions verses that contradict with Gays behavior.
For example Sodomy was not gay fuck gay
and many others verses just supporting Gays.

you gay just do not know to answer

Women emancipation contradict with Islam and Christian Hollybooks verses.

You will also find that some Heterosexual men behavior contradict with Hollyboks

Another example
Wrong answer / misleading answer:
- We become Gay because Fucked by Men when we were children
- Gay sex just like men and women sex desire

Religion has been the one institution that has led people away from discovering their purpose and place with God.
14. 2017-02-19 17:17  
13, that's quite a non sequitur.

15. 2017-02-20 00:46

Isn't it interesting to watch as various political figures verbally bash gays? It is known for a fact that a lot of these politicians are gay themselves and are trying to deflect any notion away from them that they are gay. And this usually directs the attention toward them..

This man is a closet gay and he wants to act macho.....what an num nuts!
My advise is for him to stay in the closet and take it like a good girl and shut his trap.

Why someone become Gay?
...Wrong answer : Because I got fucked when I was child
---Correct answer : Because I got Religion education when I was child

A lot of Religious leaders and Evangelists alike will pick things out of the Bible when it suits them. Many of the words in the Bible are two words made into one and some are acronyms. To really know exactly what the Bible says, one can not just take it as it reads, each word has it's own meaning and it has to be studied word by word and sentence by sentence and even sentences have different meanings to different people. What Manny is doing is Judging others and this is contradictory to what Scripture says.
