Manny Pacquiao Writes Instagram Post With Bible Verse About Killing Gays, Quickly Deletes It
The Bible was written over a long period of time when the world was a scary place and a cold wind could kill your entire family in a week. Not surprisingly, there's a lot in there that doesn't exactly mesh with our modern understand of how the universe works, but from a morality standpoint, sure, the Bible isn't a particularly horrific religious doctrine.
That being said, it's still has a fair share of cringe-worthy passages about who and how certain human beings should be treated. Sensing the need to justify his anti-gay beliefs after getting dropped by Nike for saying "gays are worse than animals," Manny Pacquiao posted -- then deleted -- a picture of he and his mother on Instagram, with a Bible passage about murdering homosexuals in the caption.
UPDATE: Pacquiao lost $1 million when Nike dropped him, according to the Daily Mail.
The Manila Times now says that Manny was only quoting a Bible verse, and doesn't really believe that gays should be killed -- you know, the old "I was just retweeting" ploy. Trump uses that excuse all the time. But he purposely placed that Leviticus quote into his Instagram post for a reason -- it didn't just blow in through a window as he was typing.
Nice work, Manny. You've somehow made yourself look worse than Floyd Mayweather Jr.
And remember Manny, the Bible says a lot of things. Example: If a man has sex with an animal, he must be put to death, and the animal must be killed. Leviticus 20:15 NLT
If Manny ever opens a restaurant, remind me never to eat there.
