Boxer banned from shopping center for disagreeing with Obama on same-sex marriage

That sound of goose-stepping you hear is the Tolerance Police banning boxer Manny Pacquiao, the winner of six world titles, from The Grove, a Los Angeles shopping center where he was scheduled to be interviewed, after publicly disagreeing with President Obama on gay marriage.

But first, the media had to misrepresent what he actually said. A reporter for the L. A. Examiner falsely reported that Pacquiao had quoted Leviticus 20:13, a verse referring to laws under the Hebrew theocracy in which homosexuality is a capital crime. It then accused him of advocating the killing of homosexuals.

As it turns out not only did Pacquiao not quote the verse, he's not even read Leviticus yet. The journalist who conducted the interview from which the quote allegedly came said, "That, Pacquiao never said nor recited, nor invoked and nor did he ever refer to such context."

But it doesn't matter. Intolerance must be stamped out. With steel-toed boots.

Its really funny watching the Right try to find examples of the "oppression" they are being subjected to. So what if gays are beaten to death, tormented in schools and denied housing, and employment? Poor Manny Pacquiao was (sob!) forced to give his interview OUTSIDE the Mall!!!! Now thats persecution!
