For starters, Pacquiao said that he is in favor of the death penalty, saying that capital punishment is actually based on the bible.

Asked whether or not he believes in the Sixth Commandment, “Thou Shalt Not Kill,” Pacquiao said, “Yes, but I also believe that the government is exempt from that Commandment.  And that’s why I favor the death penalty if it is imposed by the government.

Pacquiao cited the biblical verse, Romans 13: 1-7, which talks about submission to governing authority.

During his campaign, Pacquiao also used his biblical expertise to support his opposition to same-sex marriage, calling gay men and women  who engage in same sex worse than animals.”

Asked by The Adobo Chronicles if he can promise a 100% attendance as senator, Pacquiao said, “That’s not in the bible.”

Pacquiao is the among the top absentees in his current term as a congressman.
