Mexicans march against gay marriage in 122 cities

The country’s president is seeking to make changes to the constitution in favour of same-sex marriage

Mexicans marched in protest against same-sex marriage last weekend.

Same-sex marriage is currently legal in Mexico City and across a handful of Mexican states. President Enrique Peña Nieto announced in May that he is seeking to recognise same-sex marriage across the country by including the law in the nation’s Constitution.

The announcement followed a Supreme Court ruling in 2015 declaring that a prohibition to same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.

In response to his proposals, the activist group National Front for the Family organised rallies in 122 cities across the predominantly Catholic country.

LifeSiteNews estimated that “more than one million" marchers attended the event, but no official count has been made.

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.

    President Enrique Pena Nieto you are doing the right thing! Continue the fight against prejudice, bigotry, and hostility to the other that so defines the Catholic faith.

    One of my favorite things about being Catholic is that I don’t feel judged by my community or church family. I was raised with the belief that that’s God’s job.
