In case we didn’t have enough wing-nut bigots for right-wing journalists to interview in the U.S., it’s now apparently fair game to interview sports figures from other countries to provide religious leadership and guidance on U.S. civil rights issues.
Granville Ampong, a conservative blogger for Examiner.com, invited Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao to weigh in on President Obama’s recent statement on the subject of marriage equality. (Among Ampong’s other notable fair and balanced journalism on Examiner.com is the article entitled “Obama, the catalyst for America becoming Sodom and Gomorrah of modern times.” Sheesh.)
The concept of separation of church and state apparently hasn’t reached the Phillipines yet. Or at least it hasn’t reached Pacquiao yet. He prattles on about how God’s word supersedes the laws of man. Never mind the fact that people have been arguing about the interpretation of God’s supposed words for centuries.
I’ve got no problem with people like Pacquiao having his own opinion. But if he has a problem with gay marriage, the answer is simple. Don’t get gay married.
Well, at least he has possible brain injury as an excuse for his lack of critical thinking ability.
