Apology Speech for Manny Pacquiao
I owe an apology to the entire human race due to the comparison of the homosexuals to animals. I accept the full responsibility for the mistake. I beg for forgiveness from all those I have hurt. This was a highly unethical, antisocial and un-Godly behavior; comparing people with animals. I know that I hurt the feelings of not only the gay people but also the human beings in extension. I am sure that this statement was really embarrassing since I made it in a public domain. I realized that I was extremely wrong to openly show disrespect to the gay individuals. Ideally, we live in a democratic nation, and everyone is free to make their own choices. This was wrong. It is an open betrayal to my political career; despising people based on their moral ideologies and out of order. Could this be justified on whichever basis? Although I am a Christian, this does not give me the authority to judge or openly criticize others, it is unjustifiable. It is religiously condemned. Furthermore, human beings are of a superior identity and thus incomparable to any other creation. They are rational beings, and I feel remorse for having despised their decisions. I have regretted this stench of failure a million times. If there is anything that I could do to the offended to make up for this, I would be very grateful.
From now on, I promise to conduct a thorough check on my words before uttering them. I promise that this would never happen again in future. I will surely honor my commitment in any given case. I would be delighted if the public changed their perception of my personality and deleted all the controversies arising from this statement. I cannot delete my words in your thoughts, but be sure of my pledge to maintain a high plane of activities and good code of conduct from now on. Please forgive me.
