Same-sex adoption displays contempt for children, warns council

.- Members of the Council of Catholic Analysts of Mexico have criticized Mexico City’s law allowing same-sex couples to marry and adopt children, saying it reveals the contempt lawmakers of the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) have for children and human life.

“The legalization of these homosexual unions and their adoption of children, together with the perverse legalization of abortion in Mexico City in 2007, show us the degree of scorn for children and human life that local lawmakers display,” the Council said. It warned that such laws conflict with the fundamental human rights recognized in various international agreements.

The Mexico City law, it said, constitutes “a serious threat for the country,” because it not only destroys the essence of heterosexual marriage, but also disrupts “the social order by attacking the basic cell of society, which is the family.” The council stated that any law granting “special privileges to a harmful ideology,” is “biologically, anthropologically, religiously, legally and socially unacceptable.”

Allowing children to be adopted by same-sex couples is to subject them to “violence of all sorts (such as psychological), as their fragile condition as children is taken advantage of in order to introduce them into environments that do not foster their full development.”

The council also came to the defense of the Archbishop of Mexico City, Cardinal Norberto Rivera, and the bishops by speaking against the hatred and social violence being promoted by “some partisans and activists.”

“We support their statements on the issue (of same-sex marriage and adoption), and as part of the body of Christ. We consider the accusations of ‘intolerance’ to which our shepherds have been recently subjected as absurd.”
