Pope backs opposition to Mexico’s same-sex marriage proposal

Francis said he supported the protest ‘in favour of family and life’

Pope Francis has voiced support for Mexican bishops and citizens opposing the Government’s push to legalise same-sex marriage.

At his weekly Sunday blessing, the Pontiff said he willingly joined their protest “in favour of family and life, which in these times require special pastoral and cultural attention around the world."

Tens of thousands of people marched through Mexico City on Saturday to protest President Enrique Pena Nieto’s proposal on marriage. Wearing white, they held banners warning against same-sex marriage and demanding parents’ right to control sex education in schools.

Francis, who has previously criticised “gender ideology", visited Mexico in February.

    Mexican population growth continues to trend down, which tells us that Mexican Catholics are telling the RCC to go pound sand when it comes to contraception. Progress is slow, but in time, the bigotry and prejudice of the disordered celibate virgins dressed in robes will be overcome by compassionate humans who respect human rights and dignity.
