Senator Antonio Trillanes Slams Senator Manny Pacquiao For Not Supporting Same-sex Marriage
SENATOR Antonio Trillanes IV criticized Senator Manny Pacquiao for not supporting same-sex marriage as Pacquiao has other thing on his mind as he wanted to reimpose death penalty in the Philippines.
Trillanes said that he respected Pacquiao's opinion about his remark against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community, but he pointed out that Pacquiao should open his mind and should not be a narrow-minded person.
In a blog post of Mr. Alon Calinao Dy, he said, "Pacquiao is always an honest person. It's his personal opinion that he disagreed same-sex marriage and wanted to bring back capital punishment in the Philippines because of rampant various corruption and crimes."
Netizens questioned Trillanes why he wanted same-sex marriage rather than having the death penalty in the country as one of the effective ways to reduce criminal activities, protecting and saving human lives including the LGBT community.
Pacquiao has been known as an ally of current President Rodrigo Duterteand is now a senator who debated against Senator Leila De Lima about his proposal to reimpose capital punishment in the country. As expected, the opposition did not want it.
Pacquiao and Trillanes have been reportedly to have arguments between each other before, but the the two senators easily resolved their issues through confrontation and good conversation.
