Mexicans march against gay marriage in 122 cities

http://www.catholicherald.co.uk/news/2016/09/15/march-against-same-sex-marriage-in-mexico/

Opponents to the change in constitution believe that reforms will make room for same-sex adoption (currently illegal in Mexico).

A spokesman for the Archdiocese of Mexico City has said that President Peña Nieto’s proposals felt like a “terrible stab in the back” to the Catholic hierarchy with whom he had previously had a good relationship.

A Grand National March in Mexico City has been organised for September 24.



The good guy in all this

2. Bullshit.

There is nothing remotely anti-Catholic about this ruling.

Indeed, as it is mostly Catholic gay couples and their families who will benefit from it, this is very much a pro-Catholic ruling.

3. Mexicans March for Gay Marriage, Day After Opponents Rally

 

http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2016/09/11/world/americas/ap-lt-mexico-gay-marriage.html?_r=0



By THE ASSOCIATED PRESSSEPT. 11, 2016, 4:18 P.M. E.D.T.

MEXICO CITY — Hundreds of gay and lesbian rights supporters marched to Mexico City's Metropolitan Cathedral to support same-sex marriage Sunday, one day after thousands marched against it.

Sunday's demonstrators carried a banner reading "We are families too" and placards reading "I respect your family, respect mine."

A day earlier, marches were held in several Mexican cities opposing same-sex marriage. White-clad demonstrators Saturday chanted "Children need a father and a mother!" and "Wake up and defend the family."

In May, President Enrique Pena Nieto proposed legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide. It is currently legal only in some places such as Mexico City, the northern state of Coahuila and Quintana Roo state on the Caribbean coast.

Pena Nieto's party suffered losses in midterm elections in June and has largely sat on the initiative since then.

4. I'm glad to see Mexicans rallying against religious bigotry

I hope the keep progressing, and hope we can also rally against the religious bigotry in the USA.

5. Not just any bigotry, the Catholic bigotry that has a stranglehold there.

It's so good to see people prying the fingers of the Catholic Church from their throats.

6. That is also good news

Catholicism was spread with a bloody sword in Southern America, hopefully a reversal is underway.

7. If attendance is any indicator, that seems to be true as days go by.

The coffers are drying up, and pews are going unfilled. And that's a great thing!

11. Pope Francis Voices Supports for Mexican Marchers in Anti-Gay Marriage Rally

Because the pope is Catholic.

Pope Francis — Mr. Who-Am-I-To-Judge — made clear where he stands on marriage equality over the weekend. Turns out the Pope is still Catholic.
An estimated 215,000 people demonstrated against the government’s proposal to legalize same-sex marriage over the weekend, and the Pope supported the Church’s stance backing the protesters.

After having remained quiet while Italy debated civil unions for same-sex couples in May, on Sunday Pope Francis expressed support for the Mexican bishops in their efforts to support the “family and life” amid a burgeoning national debate over gay marriage.

“I join willingly the Bishops of Mexico in supporting the efforts of the Church and civil society in favor of the family and of life, which at this time require special pastoral and cultural attention worldwide,” Francis said after the weekly Angelus prayer.
