Title: Mommy Dionisia blames pastors for son’s defeat

That’s what he gets for changing his religion,” (http://sports.inquirer.net/75919/mommy-dionisia-urges-pacquiao-to-be-catholic-again) Dionisia Pacquiao said in an interview in General Santos City.

Her son, Filipino boxing hero Manny Pacquiao, had been losing sleep because of night Bible studies with “Protestant pastors.”
....
A short right to the chin during a close-quarters exchange toward the end of the sixth round felled Pacquiao. He was out cold for two minutes.

Pacquiao left the Catholic Church last year and went with a Bible-based movement whose members called themselves Christians.

...Mommy Dionisia...is furious every time they come to her son’s mansion in General Santos City and crowd around him.

“Since the Protestant pastors came into his life (http://www.alabangnewlife.org/), he has not focused on his boxing,” Mommy D said. “They always pray, with Manny losing sleep.”

If the decision were hers to make, her son should retire from boxing after his stunning defeat. And he should go back to the Catholic Church.

“I hope he listens to me when he returns, and be a Catholic again,” she said.
Those Protestants! >:(

Pacquiao's new church is Pentecostal/Charismatic (http://www.alabangnewlife.org/):

We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is a promise from the Father for every believer and is distinct and subsequent to the experience of the new birth. Speaking in tongues, as the Holy Spirit gives utterance, is a physical indication of the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 3:11; Acts 2:4 & 38-39; 19:4-6

Obviously, he'd been using Carman's The Champion for his training montage sequence and kept expecting the ref to start the count at 10.

As a Filipino and waning Catholic, all these comments are idiotic.  And the Catholics back home wonder why they are losing membership when they make comments like this.
