Bishop denounces pro-gay unions campaign in Mexico

.- The President of Committee on Family Ministry of the Bishops Conference of Mexico, Bishop Rodrigo Aguilar Martinez, is questioning ads sponsored by the government’s Health Secretariat promoting homosexual unions as a “right,” saying, “We cannot go along with or accede to such things, because sooner or later the damage will be felt.” Bishop Aguilar says the content of the ads, which will be broadcast by the media starting in March, should be reviewed because instead of fighting against “homophobia” they are promoting promiscuity and human and social degradation.

He also encouraged people to make their opinions about these ads known, and he said the Church is not seeking popularity or the imposition of a passing fashion, but rather fidelity to Christ in the Gospel.

“The position of the Church is that homosexuality is a disorder and cannot be approved.  The intention is not to discriminate or reject somebody, but to reject homosexual acts,” the bishop stated.

To make same-sex unions equivalent to marriage—he added—and later to allow them to adopt children is a tendency “disordered in and of itself” which “harms the child, who has a right to be with a father and a mother.”
