Boxer Manny Pacquiao has rightly apologized to “LGBTQP” activists for saying, “Do you see animals mating with the same sex? Animals are better because they can distinguish male from female. If men mate with men and women mate with women, they are worse than animals.”
Homosexual Hollywood pontificator Perez Hilton responded, “There’s absolutely no call to demonize and denigrate gay people by comparing them to animals.” He is not alone in his criticism of Pacquiao.
The opposition expressed by homosexuals to being compared to animals is confusing because it is the homosexual community that has for years justified homosexual activity by pointing to its presence in the animal kingdom. In the Pacquiao kerfuffle, some have criticized him for not knowing that animals do, indeed, engage in homosexual activity. Apparently, homosexual activists do not take issue with the comparison of homosexuals to animals as much as they do to Pacquiao’s view that homosexuals are “worse” than animals.
Both Pacquiao and homosexual activists err.
Although God detests homoerotic activity, which mars the image of God imprinted on man, God does not think of humans who engage in it as subhuman. Rather, he views them as he does all humans. He views them as fallen people in need of redemption.
“Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.”
“For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God.”
“And such were some of you. But you were washed,
you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of
the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”
~1 Corinthians 6:11
