LOOKING  IN

BY ROD BALBON

All the while I thought Manny Pacquiao is a fighter. But when I saw him the other night on TV apologizing to the “bakla” and “tibo” third sexes for the statement he made regarding same sex marriage, I said to myself, this man is not really made of a sterner stuff. He’s now more of a politician and not a fighter, a senatorial candidate who’s apparently afraid to lose the LGBT’s votes.

But there’s no need for him to apologize. He was merely expressing an honest personal opinion which is directed only against those who entered into same sex marriages and not against the lesbians, gay, bisexual and transgender community. And I find his description of gay couples are “worse than animals”very appropriate. Pacquiao reasoned out, “Do you see animals mating with their same sex? Animals are better because they can distinguish male from female.” He then concluded, “If men mate with men and women mate with women they are worse than animals.”

Yes, LGBTs are not animals but are also people deserving of the same rights as everyone else. But the gender preferences of those who espouse same sex marriage are contrary to biblical, religious teachings and standard norms and conduct of a decent society. It’s totally abnormal and way below the gender preference of animals.

If God willed that same sex marriage is not forbidden, then right from the very beginning, He should have created Adam and Robin or Eve and Ana instead of Adam and Eve only. The reason is obvious. These two divine creations of opposite sexes set the divine mandate and the norm and standard of marriage—marriage of opposite sexes and not of the same sexes.

So why would Pacquiao apologize to these people who are worse than animals?
