Former world champion Miguel Cotto congratulated his colleague, featherweight contender Orlando 'The Phenomenon' Cruz, for publicly announcing that he is gay. When they were amateurs, Cotto and Cruz represented Puerto Rico side by side. Cotto, recognized as the biggest boxing attraction in the country, voiced his support for Cruz.

"For many years Orlandito and I spent time together on the national team of Puerto Rico. We went to the Central [games], Pan American [games], World Championships, Olympics ... I have a great appreciation for Orlandito. I congratulate him," Cotto stated during a radio interview in Puerto Rico.

"Orlandito is my friend. I'm sure it wasn't easy for him [to make that announcement], but I congratulate him. From this point forward he will see that his life will change a lot and things will be much better for him."

[QUOTE=jasons0660]Chaos still hasn't reponded to my question regarding his/her attitude to female homosexual behavior. His posts rail against male homosexual behavior but he hasn't really said anything about female homosexual behavior. Enquiring minds wish to know. I find that those who are ...

[QUOTE=jasons0660]Chaos, What you need to remember is that homosexuality is completely natural. It is also completely normal for those who are inclined in that direction. If you, yourself, were to turn to a man for comfort, I would say that you are being completely natural and normal. Yes...

[QUOTE=chaos]Let me explain to you the difference between hating someone and disapproving of their lifestyle. If I was walking down a dark alley in the middle of nowhere, and I came across Sean Hannity, I would beat him to a pulp with my bare hands until there was nothing left of him. I would do ...
