.- The spokesman for the Archdiocese of Guadalajara, Father Antonio Gutierrez, said this week that Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez has proof that Mexico City Governor Marcelo Ebrard bribed members of the Supreme Court into supporting same-sex âmarriageâ and the adoption of children by homosexual couples.
âYes, there is a foundation. The cardinalâs statements are based on information that he has, and he is not the only one who knows, other people do as well,â the priest said, adding that the cardinal has no intention of retracting his comments, as Ebrard is demanding. Regarding a possible lawsuit by the governor against the cardinal, Father Gutierrez said, âHe is free to proceed as he wishes.â
After noting that the cardinal will not be making any statements, Fr. Gutierrez addressed the members of the court and said the archdiocese is not afraid of a vote of censure.
âWe are not afraid. Let them proceed. Unfortunately they have absolute power and nobody can question them, but they can proceed as they wish,â he said, adding that the archdiocese is prepared for any lawsuit that may arise.
