Mexico Church spokesman will appeal conviction for public criticism of politicians

Catholic World News - March 09, 2011

The official spokesman for the Mexico City archdiocese plans to appeal a ruling that he was guilty of "proselytism" when he said that Catholics should not support political candidates who favor legal abortion and same-sex unions.

Father Hugo Valdemar Romero told the Catholic News Agency that in criticizing the Democratic Revolutionary Party he had "simply appealed to the consciences of Catholics not to vote for a party that destroys their values." He charged that the party was trying to silence the voice of the Church.
