Mexico: cardinal condemns ‘sexual preference’ amendment
June 10, 2011
Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez of Guadalajara has condemned the swift approval of a constitutional amendment that bans discrimination on the basis of “sexual preference.”
“By protecting sexual preferences, the door is opened to all kinds of irregularities and aberrations, because there are very aberrant sexual preferences, such as pedophilia and zoophilia, among others,” he wrote in a diocesan newspaper column. “Thus, practices like the so-called ‘marriage’ between same-sex persons will become, so to speak, consecrated by this reform.”
