Same-sex 'marriage' unconstitutional, says legal expert

.- A legal expert from the Institute for Legal Research at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, Jorge Adame Goddard, said last week that Mexico City's recent decision to allow same-sex “marriage” and homosexual adoption are both “unconstitutional.”

In an interview with the Notimex news agency, Goddard said, “In addition to attacking the basic concept of the family, these reforms violate the Constitution” and are “subverting the entire national legal order, giving a different meaning to all the civil and local laws that address marriage.”

He added that allowing same-sex couples to adopt would have serious repercussions on children.  “The child of a same-sex couple will be a child who will find it difficult to adapt to social life.”

“He will see that most children have a mother and a father. How will the children who have a mother and a father react to the child who does not have a father and mother, but rather two parents of the same-sex?” Goddard asked.

He stressed that the new law will lead to problems for schools, as it will provoke controversies over claims of discrimination if a schools opts to accept or reject admission of children from same-sex unions.
