.- During Mass this past Sunday, which was also observed as Father’s Day in many countries, Bishop Benjamin Castillo Plascencia of Tabasco said homosexuals don’t have the right to be fathers “because they cannot give an example of true masculinity.”
Homosexuals “find it hard to understand that there is a certain deficiency, a certain error, and therefore there is a natural limitation that must be accepted,” the bishops said at the end of Mass.
“They cannot give an example of true masculinity, there is a deficiency there that must be acknowledged, without showing disrespect for them in any way,” Bishop Castillo stated.
The bishop also explained that simply procreating without a commitment does not make one a father. To be a father one must “be dedicated and supportive not only with food or by just being a good provider, but also by entering into dialogue and closeness with one’s children.”
