Marquez looked stronger, but we wanted you to win. God did not intend for any of us to move through this life alone, gay or not. I want you to laugh with us. Last week, after President Barack Obama endorsed same-sex marriageManny Pacquiao — the world champion boxer, Philippine congressman, and staunch Catholic — was asked for his opinion on the issue. Every day I am amazed by the wealth of my survival. Laurel Fantauzzo was a Fulbright Scholar to the Philippines. May I call you Kuya Manny?
When I faced Proposition 22, Proposition 8, DOMA, Amendment 1, and too many dictates from the Church, and relatives, and leaders like you, who called me disordered, dangerous, diseased, doomed, how did I survive?
Catholic na Catholic. I hope I will be that kind of wife. God did not intend for any of us to move through this life alone, gay or not.
You feel like ours.
