The Liberal Party criticized the controversial remarks of Saranggani Rep. Manny Pacquiao regarding his view on Same-sex marriage.
According to Senate President Franklin Drilon, Pacquiao’s statement on the issue of same-sex marriage was wrong because it only showed that the Pambansang Kamao lacks knowledge, which is one of the aspects that voters should look into and consider with their public servants.
Drilon, Vice Chairman of the Liberal Party however added what is important is that Pacquiao already apologized to the Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and Transgender community, and that he with the words he used in explaining his stance regarding the said subject.
Earlier this week, a video went viral regarding Pacquiao’s comment on same-sex marriage. Pacman said that people who engage in intercourse with the same sex are worse than animals, because even animals are capable of recognizing the opposite sex.
Members of the LGBT community immediately fired back at Pacman, calling him “bigot” and insensitive among other things.
Incidentally, Pacquiao is running for Senator under the United Nationalist Alliance of Vice President Jejomar Binay.
