LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chornicles, San Francisco Bureau) – When Manny Pacquiao meets Timothy Bradley, Jr. for the third time on April 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, he will be met by a picket line by the homophobic hate group Westboro Baptist Church (WBC).
WBC is known for its rhetoric against homosexuals and has staged pickets at many high-profile events, including funerals, espousing its belief that “God hates fags.”
So, why are the WBC members picketing Pacquiao when he is on their side?
Just recently Pacquiao compared homosexuals to animals, claiming that human beings are worse than animals for engaging in same-sex behavior.
It appears that WBC is picketing for a different reason. The church believes that the sport of boxing is “barbaric” and “animalistic” and goes against the teachings of God.
So, there. Pacquiao will finally meet his match. Not Bradley. WBC.
