.- Archbishop Alberto Suarez Inda of Morelia, Mexico explained this week that the adoption of children by gay couples is not an issue of tolerance but rather a concern over legitimizing something that “goes against nature itself.”

Amidst widespread rejection of the Mexican Supreme Court’s ruling to allow gay adoptions, the archbishop explained, “It's one thing to tolerate conduct contrary to what is commonly accepted; it's another to want to legitimize that which goes against nature itself.”

“I know many cases of children and young people who are deprived of a father or a mother ... because of this, they have a great emptiness and are sometimes traumatized for life,” Archbishop Suarez added, underscoring that the country’s traditions and cultures need to be respected.

“It is unjust to arbitrarily step all over the foundation of our society,” he continued. “The nucleus or cell of our social fabric has been the family made up of man, woman and their biological or adopted children.”

“These issues must be analyzed and discussed in high-level academic and inter-disciplinary forums.  Authorities must not take certain positions due to pressure or without sufficient reasoning and wide consultation with the people,” the archbishop said.
