Ronda Rousey Criticized Manny Pacquiao For His Thoughts On Homosexuality, And It's Nice To Know She Hasn't Changed A Bit
Uproxx- Still, add Ronda Rousey to the list of people not impressed by Pacquiao’s stance. But unlike others interested in going after Pacquiao personally, Rousey went with a bigger picture view on homosexuality as it pertains to religion. She also said she hadn’t “heard what happened” to Pacquiao.
“I understand that a lot of people use religion as a reason to be against gay people, but there was no ‘Thou Shall Not Be Gay,'” Rousey told TMZ. “God never said that, and I really think that our pope now is boss. He was saying something the other day that religion should be all-encompassing and should be about welcoming everyone and loving everyone. And I think people take the wrong message sometimes.”
Oh, look at Ronda, what a hero! She supports the rights of homosexuals everywhere. Let's shower her with rose pedals because she's such a good role model for our youth. Thank God she didn't kill herself! Who would teach our children right from wrong by taking unsolicited shots at every boxer with an antiquated belief or two? Who cares that she flat out lied about the actual contents of the Bible? It doesn't matter that her stance on "welcoming everyone and loving everyone" is completely hypocritical given her past history of criticizing everyone. She's Ronda Rousey! She's progressive and empowering and her opinion is more important than some archaic scripture that millions upon millions of people swear by.
Listen, I am not saying that Ronda Rousey is wrong in saying that homosexuality should be accepted. I am saying she's wrong in saying that the Bible doesn't very clearly renounce it. Not even a surprisingly liberal pope can talk his way around that one. Now, I obviously don't think we should follow the teachings of a thousand year old book word for word, but it also doesn't surprise me that Ronda Rousey doesn't either.
After all, It just wouldn't be a Ronda Rousey quote unless there was an ulterior motive behind it. As much of a problem as the Lord had with the gays, he had just as big of a problem with adulterers and those coveting thy neighbor's significant other. Pretty sure that up until about a week ago Ronda Rousey was dating a married man. Not only that, but she was on television talking about popping out the future children of a still married man. I don't think I would have to sit down with God over coffee to definitively say that he wouldn't exactly approve of Ronda Rousey's actions. The Holy Spirit may have hated him some homosexuality, but he didn't dedicate TWO DIFFERENT COMMANDMENTS to it. So get out of my face Ronda, you blasphemous bitch. The only reason you feel comfortable manipulating the words of the Bible is because it makes you feel better about your time as a sidepiece.
