Mexican Church will continue to resist homosexual adoption, spokesman says

CWN - June 29, 2010

Even if Mexico’s courts allow adoption by homosexual couples, the Catholic Church will continue to condemn the practice as immoral, a spokesman for the Mexico City archdiocese has said.

Father Hugo Valdemar said that he expected the country’s top court to uphold a new law allowing homosexuals to adopt children. “We are respectful,” he said, “although we do not agree on the moral point of view.” He said that the Church will endeavor to change public opinion on the question. “Our work is one of evangelization,” he said.
