Thousands Of Mexicans Protest Against LGBT And Gay Marriage.


TeleSur News           Posted Sat., Night, Sept.10, 2016

Thousands of Mexicans took to the streets of cities across the country Saturday to “defend their children” and “defend the traditional family” against the the alleged threat of gay marriage.

The so-called “march for the family” was called by the National Front for the Family, a Catholic organization that was created last May after Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto submitted a proposal to Congress to legalize gay marriage nationwide.

The initiative was seen as a move by Peña Nieto to gain popular support amid historically low approval ratings, and was ultimately dropped by lawmakers of his own party.

However, the most conservative wing of Mexico, including the archbishop of Norberto Rivera and other religious congregations, have supported and joined a campaign against the lingering threat of equality—a campaign that has been widely criticized by intellectuals, politician and civil organizations for promoting hatred and violence against the LGBT community.

Members of the National Front for the Family say they represent more than one million families in Mexico and argue that they obtain resources from their own members.

However, critics say the participation of the Catholic Church is evident in this political movement, with LGBT activists calling it a violation of Mexico’s secular democracy.

“The right to demonstrate and freedom of expression can not be used to promote hatred and discrimination, especially in a country where members of LGBTQ are already vulnerable to bullying, harassment, intimidation and even death threats,” Temistocles Villanueva, national secretary for Sexual Diversity in the leftist-progressive MORENA party, said in an interview with teleSUR.

The representatives of the National Front for the Family say they respect homosexuality, however they demand the state reject their constitutional right to marry, calling them “unstable people” in their propaganda.

Same-sex marriage is legal in some states of Mexico, however, in other states same-sex couples have been banned from getting married.

Last June, the Supreme Court ruled that every civil state authority should “recognize marriage as a human right and that people can enter into marriage without any kind of discrimination.”

LGBTQ movements will on Sept. 11 hold a protest to promote inclusion and respect. They are expected to release a letter addressed to Pope Francis to in which they will demand the removal of Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera, who they accuse of “promoting hatred” towards the community.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
