Manny explains his gay marriage statement

By Vitali Shaposhnikov: Manny Pacquiaoís recent well recognized statement about his opinion on gay marriage has got him in trouble with a local Los Angeles community. "God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married, if they so are in love with each other, not of the same sex to adulterate the altar of matrimony,Ē said Pacquiao in a recent statement about the sensitive topic.

It now appears as thought his words may have been misinterpreted and over exaggerated, as Pacquiao has offered an explanation on the issue: I didnít say that, thatís a lieÖ I didnít know that quote from Leviticus because I havenít read the Book of Leviticus yet. I only gave out my opinion that same sex marriage is against the law of God. Iím not against gay peopleÖ I have a relative who is also gay. We canít help it if they were born that way. What Iím critical off are actions that violate the word of God.Ē (http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/sports/05/16/12/pacquiao-gays-i-was-just-voicing-my-opinion)

Whether it was misinterpreted or not, as a public figure and a government official, Pacquiao should think twice before bringing up an issue as such, especially in United States, where it has gone through some recent turbulence.
