PACQUIAO — A certain topic went trending following Senator Manny Pacquiao’s recent statement about his take on imposing the death penalty in the Philippines.
The trend started when Rappler posted a tweet citing Senator Manny Pacquiao’s recent statement about his take on imposing the death penalty for certain heinous crimes in the Philippines.
Pacquiao reportedly pushed for the death penalty, saying that illegal drug traffickers and manufacturers deserved to be punished. He also claimed that God “allowed” the government to carry out the death penalty “biblically”.

Netizens then reacted on Pacquiao’s statement knowing that the senator was a born-again Christian (although his former religion was Catholic before he converted). Here are some of the tweets:
Pacquiao really out here trying to justify death penalty using God and the Bible.— loyer life (@lolyersforlife) July 29, 2020
Commandment #2: Thou shall not take the name of the Lord in vain
Commandment #5: Thou shall not kill
Before we comment on the accuracy of Pacquiao’s interpretation of the biblical narrative, can someone tell him na he cannot use his belief as a basis of a policy, which will affect everybody, because not all people share the same belief in gods, specifically, his God.— sheng (@sheengkit) July 29, 2020

Dami na naman nagmamagaling… Kala mo talaga nakakabasa sila ng bible… Nabasa niyo lang ang 10 commandments… Di niyo pa nabasa lahat ng nakasulat dun… #Pacquiao— nikki santos (@nickolet1818xxx) July 29, 2020
