You can tell he’s athletic based on how quickly he can put his foot in his mouth…
Sadly, the 37-year-old just so happens to be the current Senator of the Philippines — so his platform to preach his anti-gay bigotry is as powerful as ever!
Luckily for all of us lesser beings, TMZ Sports caught up with Manny on Thursday to give him a chance to backtrack on his “common sense” comments comparing homosexuals to animals.
However, when asked whether he regretted making the initial comparison, Manny instead chose to basically issue a non-apology, saying:
“Yes, [I regret it,] but I’m not changing my position from what the Bible says. My mistake is just comparing them to animals… I’m just human — Nobody’s perfect.”
“Nobody’s perfect”… especially not the gays, right?
The irony of his statement is obviously lost on him, so we’ll break it down for you — The Bible is always right… as long as you’re only reading the parts you agree with.
Do U think Manny deserves our forgiveness??
