Mexico archdiocese: Pro-gay marriage political party hates Church, wars on society

Catholic World News - January 07, 2010

A spokesman for the Archdiocese of Mexico City has accused the leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution-- one of the nation’s three largest political parties-- of displaying “its true face ... intolerance and hatred toward the Catholic Church” and waging war against Mexican society by supporting same-sex marriage and the adoption of children by homosexuals. The city assembly, dominated by the party and its allies, recently legalized same-sex marriage.

“The (party) has declared war on Mexican society because it can't ignore that the vast majority of it is Christian, whether it's Catholic, evangelical or other smaller churches that show a great respect for life and the family,” said Father Hugo Valdemar Romero. The party’s leader said on January 4 that it would lodge complaints with the government to prevent the Church from speaking on political matters.
