Yet another example of gay marriage advocates showing what they mean by tolerance - openly discriminating against a member of a minority for up holding his religious beliefs:





Who knew that Manny Pacquiao’s toughest opponent wasn’t Floyd Mayweather Jr. or Timothy Bradley, but the entire lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender (LGBT) community?



As far as gay-rights advocates are concerned, it’s a knockout.



An Internet report claimed Pacquiao is now barred from The Grove, a shopping mall in Los Angeles, where the TV show “Extra” is taped, because of his “bigotry.”



In a recent interview in the US newspaper National Conservative Examiner, Pacquiao likened gay marriage to “Sodom and Gomorrah” and quoted a biblical passage that said “gays should be put to death.”



Pacquiao denied saying that in a statement read on the network news in Manila last night. He also said he did not know the text in Leviticus that prescribes death for homosexualsexualsexualsexualsexualsexualsexuality.



But earlier in the day, his website quoted him as standing by what he said.



Gay activists have weighed in and found Pacquiao wanting.



Anna Leah Sarabia, anthropologist and gender and development specialist, told the Inquirer: “He has lost many fans, unfortunately, and gained many critics. He is trying to make up for lack of knowledge on social issues by being self-righteous and quoting the Bible out of context, and parroting the brainless statements of homosexualsexualsexualsexualsexualphobic and misogynist priests and politicians.”



Danton Remoto, chair of the Ladlad LGBT political party, also told the Inquirer: “Like Miriam Quiambao, Pacquiao speaks with the zeal of the newly converted about things he knows nothing about. His reading of Christian teachings is narrow-minded, bigoted and, I am sorry to say, ignorant.”



The Courage Campaign website described Pacquiao as “homophobic” and launched an online petition for Nike to drop him as endorser.



The online campaign read: “Kids all over the world look up to Pacquiao as a role model. Nike earned a 100-percent rating in the 2012 Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index as a pro-LGBT company. Will they live up to it? Sign our petition and tell Nike: ‘Do not tarnish your brand.

Stand with millions of LGBT and fair-minded people the world over. Drop Pacquiao now. Hatred surely does not equal Nike.’”



According to LA Weekly, Rick Jacobs, founder and chair of Courage Campaign, said: “American sponsors are going to have to look very carefully … whether they [will] continue to pour money into his apparently empty soul.”



Apart from Nike, Pacquiao has scored lucrative deals with international companies like Hewlett-Packard and Hennessy, too.



Banned at Grove

According to online reports, “Extra” host Mario Lopez announced on Twitter that Pacquiao was set to guest today (May 17) on his show, which is taped at The Grove.



The mall eventually issued this statement, published by LA Weekly on its website: “Based on news reports of statements made by Mr. Pacquiao, we have made it be known that he is not welcome at The Grove and will not be interviewed here now or in the future. The Grove is a gathering place for all Angelenos and not a place for intolerance.”



Pacquiao is in Los Angeles, training for his fight with Bradley to be held on June 9 in Las Vegas

See what's happening here Dusty?



Yet another example of how Catholics and racial minorities are shunned by Hollywood's liberal oh-so-tolerant elite.



Meanwhile listen to the deafening silence from the mainstream media compared to their baying for blood over Sandra Fluke.



I wonder if Obama will call Pacquiao to console him on this shameless discrimination?



Perhaps Filipinos are not one of his target markets.

Well, it is Hollywood after all. Maybe Mr. Pacquiao would have better luck at a mall in Mississippi....



The other notably hysterical thing about this is that the bigot who wrote the article in the first place referenced Leviticus, which did no favors for Pacquiao, but also, Mr. P has tattoos, which is verboten in the same book of The Bible...awwwwww...looks like a clusterfuck of bigotry.



Maybe between the author of the article who broke the story about Pacquiao, and Mr. P himself, they could put their heads together and come up with one human brain between them.

We already have a thread about this blatant example of hypocrisy and discrimination against minorities by the intolerant Hollywood elite and their apologists

Funny. More and more bigoted bible-thumpers like Pacquiao are receiving the public condemnation they so richly deserve. I wonder if Nike will drop him now that he's come out as a homophobe and a hypocritical tattoo-wearer. Regardless, it's very bad PR to be associated with a bigot like that.

With the majority of Californians opposing homosexual marriage - just like Manny - one wonders how many shoppers will be put off visiting The Grove due to the inexcusable discrimination from the bigoted owners?



Perhaps the owners will offer financial compensation to stores that are adversely affected and to retail sales people who lose their jobs.

One is reminded of shops and restaurants in the south who put up signs in the window saying "No Blacks".



Apparently shriek now supports such discrimination. Perhaps he is evolving?

Unless you're a Republican like Larry Craig, most people go to the toilet in a rest room.

Just the opposite. The Grove is breaking anti-discrimination laws and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.



Still it's hilarious to see how fast the homosexual marriage advocates can abandon all their passion for "equality"!

Let's see how The Grove justify only banning Pacquiao and not everyone else who opposes homosexual marriage.



Perhaps they picked on Pacquiao because he is a man of colour?

Yep. What was the guy thinking?



It's a lot like how Catholic churches and schools discriminate against gay kids by denying them entry to proms, denying them public receipt of the Matthew Shepard scholarship, retaliate against marriage equality proponents, etc. It's perfectly legal in all these cases. The only difference is that one side supports equal rights for all Americans, the other side thinks gays should be 2nd class citizens. Very much like how Southern Baptists and Mormons [s]used to[/s] treat mixed-race couples.

Discrimination against somebody because of religious beliefs is just as bad as discriminating because they are gay. It's interesting how some members of this board scream when gays are denied something, but applaud when it happens to an extremely religious person. You can't have it both ways as the world does not revolve around just you.



The exception being those who pose a danger to others - such as a terrorist.
