Boxer Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines steps on the scale at before his WBO welterweight title fight against Shane Mosley at MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 6, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Pacquiao will defend his WBO welterweight title against Mosley on May 7, 2011 in Las Vegas

Manny Pacquiao says that he regrets about saying that gays are worse than animals, but his position remains anti-gay because he is a Christian and Bible declares homosexuality as a sin. Saying that gays are worse than animals was a mistake, he admits. “I’m just a human, nobody’s perfect”, the boxer concludes. The sports star and wannabe politician has most recently claimed the comments were taken out of context. “I don’t mean to condemn them. No one can condemn anyone,” Pacquiao said, according to theNew York Post. “I apologise for using words that no one wanted to hear.”

Former world champion Shane Mosley said he would champion gay rights, and would fight on behalf of gay people hurt by comments Pacquiao made about gays being “worse than animals”. He said: “My family and I are really upset about Pacquiao and the attitude towards gay rights in the boxing community. I would love to make everyone feel comfortable going to a boxing match.” Tweeting after the story broke, Mosley said he would wear rainbow gloves in honour of the LGBT community, if a rematch were to happen.
