Catholics in Costa Rica collecting signatures against gay ‘marriage’

.- Last Sunday at various parishes in the capital of Costa Rica, volunteers began collecting signatures demanding that a referendum be held in the country on the issue of gay unions.

Archbishop Hugo Barrantes of San Jose told the newspaper Prensa Libre that the campaign is an initiative by the faithful who “defend life, the principles of the Church and marriage.”

The campaign, he said, seeks to convince Costa Ricans to vote against “gay marriage, if lawmakers don’t realize that this is pernicious and perverse for society.”
