“Pambansang Kamao” Manny Pacquiao, who is running for a senatorial spot in this year’s national elections, emphatically expressed his view regarding same-sex marriage via an interview with TV5’s initiative, Bilang Pilipino 2016.
In the video interview, his view on same-sex marriage means “mas masahol pa sa hayop ang ta0.” (Rough translation: man is worse than animal)
Here’s the full transcript of Pacquiao’s video interview:
Common sense lang. Makakita ka ba ng any animals na lalaki sa lalaki o babae sa babae? Mas mabuti pa ‘yung hayop. Marunong kumikilala, kung lalaki o lalaki, babae babae, o di ba? Ngayon kung lalaki sa lalaki, babae sa babae, mas masahol pa sa hayop ang tao.
(Rough translation: It’s just common sense. Have you seen any animal where male is to male and female is to female? Animals are better then because they know how to distinguish if male or female. Now, if male is to male and female is to female then man is worse than animal.)
Here’s his video interview with Bilang Pilipino 2016.
Most netizens, even those who say they are devout Christians and are also against same-sex marriage, disagree with Pacquiao’s view of comaparing same-sex marriage to being worse than animals.
