Filipino boxing champ Manny Pacquaio unfavor the stand of the United States of America President Barrack Obama on same sex marriage.
On an interview by Gransville Ampong in National Conservative Examiner on May 12 Pacquiao said,” God's words first... obey God's law first before considering the laws of man. God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married, only if they so are in love with each other.” But it went more controversial when he cited a Bible version found Leviticus 20:13 saying “ If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”
The boxing champ is presently in United States for his training for the upcoming fight against American boxer Timothy Bradley on June 9. His stand on the issue causes the US entertainment show the EXTRA to cancel his appearance and interview. Now another incident happened that he was barred from a mall in Los Angeles The Grove. The mall on their statement,” Based on news reports of statements made by Mr. Pacquiao we have made it be known that he is not welcome at The Grove and will not be interviewed here now or in the future. The Grove is a gathering place for all Angelenos and not a place for intolerance”.
Do this incidents merely affects the upcoming fight of Pacquaio against American boxer Bradley?
