Vice president of Paraguay voices opposition to same-sex ‘marriage’

.- The vice president of Paraguay, Federico Franco, said this week that if he were president, he would veto any law allowing same-sex “marriage,” because of the harm it would bring children raised in such an environment.

“During the campaign I was asked about homosexual marriage, and I might add that I am also against abortion because of my Christian convictions,” Franco said. He then underscored that his opposition to gay “marriage” is because he considers “marriage to be a sacrament, the cornerstone of society, and out of defense of children.

“I say selfishness must not prevail over the interests of society,” he added.

“A law of this nature must not be passed,” Franco continued. “Can you fathom the harm we would be doing to a child who grows up in a homosexual marriage" when other children "find out and question him or her about it?" he asked. 

For this reason, he added, “If I were president, the veto (of a law on homosexual ‘marriage’) would be total and absolute.”

“I am a Christian and I want the people know how Federico is going to act, because I have always tried to be as consistent as possible,” he asserted.
