Uruguayan prelate decries legalization of marijuana
December 16, 2013
A Uruguayan prelate denounced the legalization of marijuana in the South American nation.
Bishop Jaime Rafael Fuentes Martín, a priest of Opus Dei, compared the Uruguayan family to a sinking ship following the legalization of marijuana, “the legalization and promotion of abortion, the legal equality of homosexual unions with marriage, and artificial fertilization in all its forms.”
Parents, he added, should stress the value of fidelity and not be “afraid to say that white is white and black is black” when discussing sexual morality with their adolescent sons and daughters.
