Manny Pacquiao pulled a Mayweather, and stepped in it, in mid May. The Congressman gave an interview to a pro-am writer, who had a Bible-pushing agenda. The writer asked Manny (pictured above with his pastor, Jeric Soriano, at the Wild Card in May) how he felt about gay marriage and the born-again hitter gave it a heavy thumbs down.
A charged passage from Leviticus was cited, and Pacquiao had to explain that he didn't recite that to the writer. The boxer came out--LOL--and explained he didn't hate gays, and didn't see an erosion of his fanbase. His skills, that was another matter entirely, some said.
Would You pay to see Floyd Mayweather Jr box against Conor McGregor?
