Last February 16, 2016, Boy Abunda lashed out at Manny Pacquiao for calling gays as worse than animals. Rappler has produced a working transcript of Boy's words. I'll cull the 7 important points of Boy Abunda in the transcript and respond to them one by one:

1. Ako po ay nasaktan, ang sama-sama po ng loob ko dahil sobra po ang pag-galang ko 'kay Manny Pacquiao. Alam niyo po, hindi ko alam kung ano ang pamantayan niya ng sinasabi niyang 'tao.'

We cannot argue over feelings. So we take it as fact that Boy Abunda felt bad.

Since Boy Abunda is asking regarding Manny Pacquiao's standard for being human, let us quote Pacquiao's words:
“Common sense lang. Makakakita ka ba ng any animals na lalaki sa lalaki, babae sa babae? Mas mabuti pa yung hayop. Marunong kumilala kung lalaki, lalaki, o babae, babae. Kung lalaki sa lalaki, babae sa babae, eh mas masahol pa sa hayop ang tao.” (Translation: It’s only common sense. Would you see any species of animals who engage in male to male, female to female [sexual] relations? Animals, then, are better than humans [in that sense]. They know how to distinguish males from females. If people then engage in male to male, female to female relations, then they are worse than animals.) (Source: Inquirer.net)
As we can see, for Manny Pacquiao, animals can distinguish male from female. So if humans can't make this simple distinction by engaging in sexual intercourse that is only proper for the male and female, even if it is between male and male or female and female, then humans are worse than animals.

"Madali ang maging tao. Mahirap ang magpakatao" as we say in Filipino. "It is easy to be born as human. It is difficult to live as human." It is possible to be born as human, yet live life like that of pigs who eats shit. Here are some shitty examples that homosexuals do with each other for pleasure:
Rimjob is someone's tongue in your asshole, for sexual pleasure (Urban Dictionary)

Anilingus is the act of plunging one's tongue into the anal cavity of your sexual partner and then swirling and thrusting aforementioned tongue in an effort to make said partner happy. (Urban Dictionary)

Fisting is the act or art of putting a fist in an ass or vigina, very popular practice among more evolved(kinky)gays. requires great care and huge amounts of lubrication. (Urban Dictionary)
Anal Sex is the act of inserting the penis into the ass hole  (Urban Dictionary)
Is this the life befitting of a human being, Boy Abunda?

2. Kung ang tao ay nananakit o ang tao ay nangyuyurak ng karapatan ng ibang tao, eh gugustuhin ko na po maging hayop.

What human right is Boy Abunda referring to? Is it the right of homosexuals to enjoy the rimjob, anilingus, fisting, and anal sex? To do all these requires careful cleaning of the anus to make it free from shit and there's no natural lubrication for these kinds of intercourse unless its urine, semen, and shit--something called the swiss roll. This is why homosexuals buy petroleum jelly for lubrication and rubber condoms for shit protection. Contrast this to the male-female intercourse: the female organ is designed to accept the male organ, with the woman's body providing the natural lubrication needed for the pleasurable act of procreation. No plastic or rubber. No chemical. All natural.

Homosexual intercourse is not a human right, because the human body does not encourage it: there is no natural lubrication for it and it really smells (and feels and tastes) like shit. No one in his right mind would love to step on shit. Try going inside your office or classroom with your shit-laced shoes and everyone will back away from you while covering their noses. This is a natural human reaction: what has been expelled by the anus is dirty, unhealthy, and should not be eaten. So why do homosexuals love to lick the anus where the shit comes from? Perhaps homosexuals are not in their right minds: their brains gave up thinking while their dickheads and assholes define what is right or wrong by the intensity of pleasure they receive.

Since homosexuals define sexual pleasure as the most important intrinsic good, then homosexuals belong to the Hedonistic School of Philosophy:
Hedonism is a school of thought that argues that pleasure is the primary or most important intrinsic good.[1] A hedonist strives to maximize net pleasure (pleasure minus pain). Ethical hedonism is the idea that all people have the right to do everything in their power to achieve the greatest amount of pleasure possible to them, assuming that their actions do not infringe on the equal rights of others. It is also the idea that every person's pleasure should far surpass their amount of pain. Ethical hedonism is said to have been started by Aristippus of Cyrene, a student of Socrates. He held the idea that pleasure is the highest good.[2] (Wikipedia: Hedonism)
Since God is the absolute good and homosexuals hate God's laws in Scripture pertaining to the evils of homosexuality, then sexual pleasure for homosexuals is a greater good even than God. This makes sexual pleasure into a god or an idol which homosexuals worship. As what I wrote in my reply to Lea Salonga before, it is really high time for homosexuals to call themselves a religion and write up their Ten Commandments.

3. Kung ang ibig sabihin po ng mga hayop ay gumagalang, ang ibig sabihin ng hayop ay nagmamahal, then I am an animal.

Homosexuals have a penchant for redefining words to justify their delusions. For example, they redefine "marriage" as simply a sexual union of two consenting persons for the purpose of pleasure, even if it is between two males or two females, when the original term "marriage" is restricted only to the sexual union of a male and a female for the purpose of begetting children to raise a family.

Now, Boy Abunda is redefining the word "animal" and ascribe to it human-like qualities like "respect" and "love". In poetry, personification of animals is a literary device, because we humans project our conceptions of the world on them. But the truth is that animals only have instincts: they do things because it is in their nature to do so in response to stimulus and conditioning. But humans are different: humans can override their animal instincts for the sake of a higher good. The reason for this is that human brain has specific regions for handling moral problems, and if these regions are less developed, then human moral reasoning fails, such as what happens to psychopaths:
Jesus Pujol of the Hospital de Mar, Barcelona, Spain, and colleagues did a study published in 2012 to analyze how psychopaths' brain responses to moral dilemmas might contrast with that of non-psychopaths. Researchers used functional magnetic resonance imaging on 22 criminal psychopathic men and 22 healthy men who were not offenders. They found that most participants gave similar responses to moral dilemmas used in the study, whether they were psychopathic or not. But their brains told a different story: The psychopaths tended to show less activation in the medial frontal and posterior cingulate cortices in response to moral dilemmas. Researchers also found differences in the psychopaths' brains in an analysis of functional connectivity -- that is, they found impairment in the connections between some brain regions involved in morality and other areas.

Pujol's group's more recent study, published this month in the journal Biological Psychiatry, also found weakened connections in psychopaths' brains that may affect their moral reasoning. Specifically, they found that structures associated with emotion showed reduced connectivity to prefrontal areas, and enhanced connectivity in an area associated with cognition. The results suggest that, in criminal psychopaths, the brain does not adequately use emotional information to control behavioral responses. (Source: CNN)
Perhaps, years of engaging in homosexual intercourse and fighting against conscience have dulled the neural connections in the brains of homosexuals responsible for moral reasoning. So we pray the prayer of Christ:
"Father, forgive them, they know not what they do." (Lk 23:34)

4. Why am I saying this, Manny? Dahil gusto kong malaman mo, na hindi sila tumigil sa kalalaban para sa kanilang mga karapatan.

Boy Abunda cited the struggle of slaves and women for emancipation and suffrage and used these as a frame for interpreting the struggle of homosexuals for making their deviancy a normal behavior approved by society.

The right of black slaves to freedom is rooted in the equal dignity of all human beings, since we are all brothers and sisters from one set of parents: Adam and Eve. The right of women to vote is rooted in the equal dignity of men and women, because Eve was taken from the side of Adam to be his companion and not from his head to rule over him or from his feet to be his slave. This is the reason why it is only Western Civilization, with its Graeco-Judaeo-Christian roots, is the only civilization which abolished slavery and granted suffrage to women. In strict Muslim countries, slavery is still accepted and women are forbidden to join politics. As the John Rhys Davies, the actor for Gimli the Dwarf in Lord of the Rings, said:
I have always been an outsider. I grew up in colonial Africa. And I remember in 1955, it would have to be somewhere between July the 25th when the school holiday started and September the 18th when the holidays ended. My father took me down to the quayside in Dar-Es-Salaam harbor. And he pointed out a dhow in the harbor and he said, “You see that dhow there? Twice a year it comes down from Aden. It stops here and goes down [South]. On the way down it's got boxes of machinery and goods. On the way back up it’s got two or three little black boys on it. Now, those boys are slaves. And the United Nations will not let me do anything about it."

What is unconscionable is that too many of your fellow journalists do not understand how precarious Western civilization is and what a jewel it is.... [He points at a female reporter and adopts an authoritarian voice, to play a militant-Islam character:] ‘You should not be in this room. Because your husband or your father is not hear to guide you. You could only be here in this room with these strange men for immoral purposes.’ I mean… the abolition of slavery comes from Western democracy. True Democracy comes form our Greco-Judeo-Christian-Western experience. If we lose these things, then this is a catastrophe for the world. (Source: Free Republic)
Homosexuals have the right to live just like other citizens. Homosexuals have the right to vote if they are of age, just like other citizens. But homosexuals should not claim the right to engage in immoral acts, because what is morally wrong should not be a legal right. Homosexuality is wrong not just because God says so. Sin has its own consequences as HIV cases tell us:
Since reports of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) virus began to emerge in the United States in the 1980s, the HIV epidemic has frequently been linked to gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM) by epidemiologists and medical professionals.... By 1982, the condition was referred to in the medical community as GRID (Gay-related immune deficiency), "gay cancer," and "gay compromise syndrome."[3] It was not until July 1982 that AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) was suggested to replace GRID [4] and it was not until September that the CDC first used the AIDS acronym in an official report.[5]

The HIV virus affects the human immune system and eventually leads to Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).[19][20][21] The CDC reports that in 2009, MSM accounted for 61% of all new HIV infections and that MSM who had a history of recreational drug injection accounted for an additional 3% of new infections. Among the approximately 784,701 people living with an HIV diagnosis, 396,810 (51%) were MSM..A recent study estimated that for every 100,000 MSM, 692 will be diagnosed with HIV. This makes MSM 60 times more likely to contract the virus than other men and 54 times more likely than women.[22]

...The HIV virus is more easily transmitted through unprotected anal intercourse than through unprotected vaginal intercourse [28] and men who report unprotected receptive anal intercourse are at increased risk of contracting the HIV virus.[25] Generally, the receptive partner is at greater risk of contracting the HIV virus because the lining of the rectum is thin and may allow the virus to enter the body through semen exchange. The insertive partner is also at risk because STIs can enter through the urethra or through small cuts, abrasions, or open sores on the penis. Also, condoms are more likely to break during anal sex than during vaginal sex. Thus, even with a condom, anal sex can be risky.[29]
As I said in Point 2, the homosexual act is against the design of the human body. To go against this design is to risk the slow and painful destruction of the human body by diseases such as HIV and AIDS. We really need to respect design in the same way as we respect Apple's design of the iPhone: the iPhone is good for calling, texting, and web browsing, but not as a brick to support a window pane. It just doesn't make sense.

And so we ask: who designed the human body? If you are a Christian, you answer "God." And since God is the designer, He wants to ensure the happiness for those who use their bodies by providing the Instruction Manual which is the Bible. This manual took centuries to compile and update, because humans, unlike angels, are difficult to teach. Humans must still be taught how to distinguish things with their five senses to differentiate between clean and unclean, before they can learn to understand the more abstract concepts of good and evil. But even in its early formative years in the time of Moses, the Bible already already contains sufficient do's and dont's to ensure human happiness, which is summarized by the Ten Commandments.

In the Ten Commandments, under the 6th Commandment, we have the laws on adultery, abortion/infanticide, homosexuality, and bestiality:
You shall not have sexual relations with your neighbor’s wife,* m defiling yourself with her. 21n You shall not offer any of your offspring for immolation to Molech,* thus profaning the name of your God. I am the LORD. 22You shall not lie with a male as with a woman;o such a thing is an abomination. 23You shall not have sexual relations with an animal, defiling yourself with it; nor shall a woman set herself in front of an animal to mate with it; that is perverse.p
24Do not defile yourselves by any of these things, because by them the nations whom I am driving out of your way have defiled themselves. 25And so the land has become defiled, and I have punished it for its wickedness, and the land has vomited out its inhabitants.q (Lv 18:20-25)
Here, God has placed a fence or a wall on human sexual relations, so that men and women can be truly happy living within those walls. As Chesterton said:
And if we took the third chance instance, it would be the same; the view that priests darken and embitter the world. I look at the world and simply discover that they don't. Those countries in Europe which are still influenced by priests, are exactly the countries where there is still singing and dancing and coloured dresses and art in the open-air. Catholic doctrine and discipline may be walls; but they are the walls of a playground. Christianity is the only frame which has preserved the pleasure of Paganism. We might fancy some children playing on the flat grassy top of some tall island in the sea. So long as there was a wall round the cliff's edge they could fling themselves into every frantic game and make the place the noisiest of nurseries. But the walls were knocked down, leaving the naked peril of the precipice. They did not fall over; but when their friends returned to them they were all huddled in terror in the centre of the island; and their song had ceased. (Sourcce: Orthodoxy)
To be "gay" originally means something related to be "happy", but homosexuals have hijacked the meaning of the word to mean the fleeting happiness of those who lusted for homosexual intercourse.

5. At kami, sa LGBT community, hindi rin kami titigil, hanggang sa dulo ng buhay namin, hanggang kamatayan, ipaglalaban namin ang aming karapatan to equality, to dignity, dahil ninakaw ito sa amin.

This is really a culture war between Christians and LGBT. Either the LGBT becomes converted to Christianity or the Christians converted to LGBT religion. There is no more middle ground as this debate regarding Manny Pacquiao's words show us. Tolerance of LGBT lifestyle is anti-thesis of the Christian religion. The Holy Bible is the ultimate form of bigotry for the LGBT religion. If the LGBT wins this war, it will usher a new age of persecution for the Church. And when that time comes, we shall go back to the catacombs or face martyrdom for Christ.

Homosexual intercourse can never be equal to heterosexual intercourse, because it is only in the latter that babies are born who become the future citizens of the nation.  "Ang kabataan ang pag-asa ng ating bayan," Dr. Jose Rizal said. "The youth is the hope of our nation." If we promote the homosexual lifestyle, there would be less babies born. Without babies, the society will experience demographic collapse, as what happens now in Europe and Japan. These countries are frantically trying now to promote men and women to have babies. Perhaps, they should also try outlawing sodomy, and put virginity on the pedestal once again, so that men will undertake heroic quests for the love of women, and fight the evils and dragons that beset our nation. Homosexuality has made men wimps.

Homosexuals already have their dignity as humans. And if they are also Christians, they also have the dignity of being adopted sons and daughters of God with all the rights and privileges of being children of God, e.g. to call God as "Abba" or "Father" and to go to heaven to see God face to face in beatific vision. What greater dignity are they asking for?

To live the homosexual lifestyle is to live the life of a pig or that of a man living with pigs in a pigpen. We are not born this way: we are born for something greater. God is a loving father who awaits for us if we but repent from our sins. No, homosexuals' dignity were never stolen from them; rather, like the Prodigal Son in Jesus' parable, homosexuals squandered their heavenly heritage by spending their money on debauchery and throwing away the graces in their soul by despising the Sacraments of the Church, such as the Sacrament of Confession. But man, unlike pigs, can still repent. As Oscar Wilde, a sodomite writer who later converted to Catholicism on his deathbed, said:
"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." (Source: Wikiquote)
God knows; I won't be an Oxford don anyhow. I'll be a poet, a writer, a dramatist. Somehow or other I'll be famous, and if not famous, I'll be notorious. Or perhaps I'll lead the life of pleasure for a time and then—who knows?—rest and do nothing. What does Plato say is the highest end that man can attain here below? To sit down and contemplate the good. Perhaps that will be the end of me too. (Source: Wikiquote)
Let us pray for Boy Abunda. May God give him the grace of conversion on his deathbed like Oscar Wilde.


6. I am not begging Manny Pacquiao for dignity, I am not begging you for respect, I am not begging you for my humanity, because you do not own my humanity. Akin 'yon (That is mine), that's my birthright."

Actually, we don't own our humanity: it is a gift given to us by God which He can also take away when we die. As Job said:
Naked I came forth from my mother’s womb,f and naked shall I go back there.* The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD!” (Job 1:21)
Boy Abunda thinks of his humanity as his birthright, in the same way as Esau is the firstborn son of Isaac by birthright. But just as Esau exchanged his birthright for a bowl of stew out of hunger, homosexuals also exchanged their humanity  for an asshole out of sexual hunger.  As Freddie Mercury once sang in the Queen song One Vision:
Gimme one night, yeah.
Gimme one hope, hey.
Just gimme, ah.
One man, one man,
One bar, one night,
One day, hey, hey.

7. "Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."--Barack Obama

Here, Obama is making a correct premise which we assume to be based on the Book of Genesis because he used the word "create" which only God can do: "if we are truly created equal." But Obama ends up making a wrong conclusion: "then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."

Yes, God created as equal in dignity as humans since we all have the same parents: Adam and Eve. If we agree that God created us equal according to the Book of Genesis, then we must also agree that the same God forbids homosexual intercourse as written in the book of Leviticus:
22You shall not lie with a male as with a woman;o such a thing is an abomination. (Lv 18:22)
As St. Augustine said:
“If you believe what you like in the Gospel, and reject what you don't like, it is not the Gospel you believe, but yourself.”  (Source: Good Reads)
By supporting homosexuality and same-sex marriage, Obama has turned the US into an abomination.

8. "Gay rights are human rights."--Hillary Clinton

 As I said before, what is morally wrong cannot be a human right. The human body was not designed for homosexual intercourse as the rise in HIV cases
 among gay men shows us, as we showed in Point 2. Rather, God designed our male and female bodies for the propagation of the human species:
God created mankind in his image; in the image of God he created them; male and female* he created them. 28God blessed them and God said to them: Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.* Have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and all the living things that crawl on the earth. (Gen 1:27-28)
Males and females have complementary reproductive systems. What homosexuals do is contrary to biology: they use their reproductive organs on digestive organs like mouth and anus. What kind of biology lesson is this? If we get our biology wrong, then we'll get our morals wrong, too, for we base our arguments on the truth of the things we can know through our five senses: sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. So is it any wonder that the gradual acceptance of homosexuality in our society already led to the gradual diminishing of the understanding of Biology, e.g. transgenders (men who believes that they are really women), transpecies (humans who think they are cats or dogs), etc.? And so we go back to the Age of Mythology, where we see human-animal species like the Minotaur and the Centaur, while gods and daemons take the form of animals to be worshiped by humans. As St. Paul said in his Letter to Timothy:
I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingly power:a 2proclaim the word; be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient; convince, reprimand, encourage through all patience and teaching.b 3For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine but, following their own desires and insatiable curiosity,* will accumulate teachersc 4and will stop listening to the truth and will be diverted to myths.d (2 Tim 4:1-4)
What the Catholic Church proposes to the world is not mythology, but historical truth of God intervening in human history:
  • The Epiphany at Mount Sinai. On the morning of the third day there were peals of thunder and lightning, and a heavy cloud over the mountain, and a very loud blast of the shofar,* so that all the people in the camp trembled. 17But Moses led the people out of the camp to meet God, and they stationed themselves at the foot of the mountain. 18Now Mount Sinai was completely enveloped in smoke, because the LORD had come down upon it in fire. The smoke rose from it as though from a kiln, and the whole mountain trembled violently. 19The blast of the shofar grew louder and louder, while Moses was speaking and God was answering him with thunder.  (Ex 19:16-19)
  • The Incarnation. And the Word became flesh* and made his dwelling among us, and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth.k 15* John testified to him and cried out, saying, “This was he of whom I said,l ‘The one who is coming after me ranks ahead of me because he existed before me.’” 16From his fullness we have all received, grace in place of grace,* 17because while the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.m 18No one has ever seen God. The only Son, God,* who is at the Father’s side, has revealed him.n (Jn 1:14-18)
  • The Descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. When the time for Pentecost was fulfilled, they were all in one place together.a 2And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind,* and it filled the entire house in which they were.b 3Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire,* which parted and came to rest on each one of them.c 4And they were all filled with the holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues,* as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.d 5Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven staying in Jerusalem. 6At this sound, they gathered in a large crowd, but they were confused because each one heard them speaking in his own language. (Acts 2:1-6)
And this God who intervened in human history has proclaimed through his Church the truth about the nature of marriage as a union of man and woman and not of a man and a man or of a woman and a woman:
He said in reply, “Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female’ 5c and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, no human being must separate.” (Mt 19:4-6)
And what God has separated and forbade, no human being must unite and legislate.

9. "If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?"--Pope Francis

I have already discussed this in my reply to Vice Ganda. Please read my answer to his tenth tweet.


10. Manny, sino ka? Sino ka para manghusga? Saan ka kumuha ng kapangyarihan para tawagin kami na mas masahol pa kaysa sa mga hayop?

A person can judge objective acts, because the Bible already provides guidelines on what is good and evil.  Whether the objectively evil act was accompanied with full knowledge and willful consent to classify the act as mortal sin is more difficult to judge because they are only revealed in courts of law or in the confessional.

It is a tragedy that homosexuals cannot see their tragedy. They were born humans, yet lived the life of pigs in a pigpen by licking anus for pleasure and glorifying shit. Pigs eat their shit, because it is in their nature to do so: they can't digest the food well, so it's worth eating their shit to maximize nutrition intake. But humans? Humans have fire which allows us to cook food and digest vegetables and meat, even if your physiology is only designed for eating fruits:
"There is no more authoritative source on anthropological issues than paleontologist Dr. Richard Leakey, who explains what anyone who has taken an introductory physiology course might have discerned intuitively--that humans are herbivores. Leakey notes that "[y]ou can't tear flesh by hand, you can't tear hide by hand.... We wouldn't have been able to deal with food source that required those large canines" (although we have teeth that are called "canines," they bear little resemblance to the canines of carnivores).

In fact, our hands are perfect for grabbing and picking fruits and vegetables. Similarly, like the intestines of other herbivores, ours are very long (carnivores have short intestines so they can quickly get rid of all that rotting flesh they eat). We don't have sharp claws to seize and hold down prey. And most of us (hopefully) lack the instinct that would drive us to chase and then kill animals and devour their raw carcasses. Dr. Milton Mills builds on these points and offers dozens more in his essay, "A Comparative Anatomy of Eating." (Source: Huffington Post)
 Thus, there is no more point for humans to be like pigs that eat shit. There is no point for humans to engage in gross anal intercourse by putting one's mouth in another man's anus. To do so would be to live less of a human being, but more of an animal--or perhaps less of an animal, for the greater one soars in knowledge, the greater the fall, as the Fall of Angels teaches us.

11. Last point: common sense ang pinag-uusapan natin. Tatakbo ka para senador? Ito ang aking katanungan, ito ang personal ko lamang na tanong: palagay mo ba iboboto ko – mga kababayan dito sa studio, sa inyong mga bahay – iboboto ko ba ang isang tao na ang tingin sa akin ay hindi isang tao? Iboboto ko ba ang isang tao na ang tingin sa akin ay mas masahol pa sa hayop? Manny, ang kasagutan, salita mo: common sense.'"

It may be common sense not to vote for persons to public office who do not share our values. But common sense is not usually common among the elite, the educated, and the privileged, for some of them would sometimes extol paintings made of splashed paint or caricatures, and pay millions of dollars for a monochrome painted walls, crumbled bed sheets, or a just plain shit. (Source: Prager University) If we wish to look for common sense, we should ask the common man on the street or in the farm. We should show him pictures of homosexuals kissing each other or scantily clad homosexuals parading in gay prides marches. What do you think will be his reaction? What do you think will he say?

Manny Pacquiao is a man from the masses, probably from class E or at the bottom of class D--both of which comprise 90% of the population. Before his boxing fame, Manny worked hard to earn a living. His mother is just your typical rural Catholic: she prays the rosary, while trying to raise her kids into God-fearing children. And Catholics comprise 80% of the population. Now, contrast these percentages with those of homosexuals which only comprise 1 to 3 percent of the population. As we can see, homosexuals are fairly rare in a country, so their opinions about homosexual intercourse and same-sex marriage are most likely not as common among the masses as they wish it would be.  Thus, compared to the opinions of practicing homosexuals like Boy Abunda and Vice Ganda, what Manny says regarding homosexuality and same-sex marriage is more representative of common sense of the common man in the Philippines.
