.- The press office of the Archdiocese of Guadalajara released a statement today indicating that Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez “is prepared to respond” to the lawsuit filed against him by the mayor of Mexico City, Marcelo Ebrard.

The mayor is suing the cardinal for comments he recently made charging that Ebrard and international organizations pressured the justices of the Supreme Court to recognize the constitutionality of same-sex “marriage” and their right to adopt.

The statement by the archdiocese stated that the cardinal’s lawyers will study the case and provide appropriate responses to judicial authorities as well as to the public. 

“For the moment we have no other response until we have seen firsthand all the documents that the officials ... are presenting. At that time we will begin outlining the position of the defendant,” the statement said.
