Mexican prelate files lawsuit in response to calls for a real 'Catholic bishop'

.- Bishop Raul Vera Lopez of Saltillo, Mexico has filed a lawsuit against those responsible for hanging blankets on the railings surrounding the  city's cathedral painted with the message, “We want a Catholic bishop.”
 
According to the newspaper Zocalo, Bishop Vera filed a lawsuit in the Mexican state of Coahuila on Aug. 4 claiming he has been the target of “acts of intimidation.”
 
On July 5, the Diocese of Saltillo responded to the blanket protest with a statement titled, “The bishop’s activity is not outside the bounds of the Gospel,” and signed by the vicar general of the diocese, Father Gerardo Escareno.  The statement did not address Bishop Vera’s support for the San Elredo Community, which encourages the active homosexual lifestyle.
 
Several days ago Bishop Vera further stirred the controversy with statements he made in an interview with LifeSiteNews.com indicating his support for the decriminalization of abortion.
 
Bishop Vera is also the president of the Fray Bartolome de las Casas Center for Human Rights and the founder of the Fray Juan de Larios Diocesan Center for Human Rights. Both organizations support the repealing of pro-life legislation enacted throughout Mexico.
