While Congressman Manny Pacquiao is busy training for his April 9 fight with Timothy Bradley, his camp is active campaigning for him.
The issue about his anti-gay comment has been renewed when one of his top aides and campaign managers on Tuesday said; the boxer might write a bill to include gay people on the lists of Person with Disability (PWD) so they can enjoy the same benefits. The controversial comment once again met negative reactions from netizens, calling it an insult to LGBT community.
Jorge Fabrica, one of Pacquiao’s campaign managers in Negros Island Region (NIR) said Pacquiao mentioned the plan even before saying his controversial anti-gay comment on TV. Fabrica said the congressman believe that being gay is a mental disability after he apparently read an article online that Half of Doctors in Europe Think Being Gay is a Disease.
Fabrica cleared that Pacman pitted the LGBT that’s why he wanted to give them benefits like PWDs and senior citizens.
“He just wanted to help because he believe that gay people needs more caring and attention like our disabled persons and senior citizens who enjoy discounts in everything”, Fabrica said. / Daisylene Torres /
