Boxer and senatorial candidate Manny Pacquiao said that same sex marriage is worst than an animal in an interview.
In the interview by local channel TV-5, Pacquiao, an evangelical Christian, said people in a same-sex marriage are "worse than an animal."
Here's the excerpt with English translation below:
“Common sense lang. Makakakita ka ba ng any animals na lalaki sa lalakI, babae sa babae? Mas mabuti pa yung hayop. Marunong kumilala kung lalaki, lalaki, o babae, babae,” Pacquiao said.
(It’s only common sense. Would you see any species of animals who engage in male to male, female to female [sexual] relations? Animals, then, are better than humans [in that sense]. They know how to distinguish males from females.)
“Kung lalaki sa lalaki, babae sa babae, eh mas masahol pa sa hayop ang tao,” he added.
(If people then engage in male to male, female to female relations, then they are worse than animals.)
