Boxer Manny Pacquiao, who made headlines last month when he spoke out against homosexuality in an interview, chatted with USA Today ahead of his World Welterweight Championship bout with Timothy Bradley on Saturday.
Regarding marriage equality, Pacquiao—who is a congressman in his native Philippines—said, “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.”
Okay, so that’s like us saying we don’t condemn Filipinos, we just condemn the sin the commit by existing.
Apparently Pacquiao also thinks it’s God’s will he beat the snot out of rival Floyd Mayweather: “My kid, he said ‘Daddy, I want you to retire soon but before you retire I have one request—fight Mayweather and beat him.’”
