San Juan, Puerto Rico, Aug 5, 2021 / 16:30 pm
The bishops in Puerto Rico have encouraged participation in a march against gender ideology, a citizen initiative in response to the upcoming launch of the "gender perspective curriculum" announced by the territorial government.
The Puerto Rican bishops’ conference encouraged the island’s laity "with complete freedom and in the exercise of their rights as citizens, freely to discern their participation" in the "march against the imposition of gender ideology” in a July 26 statement.
The bishops said they support parents and lay faithful, who, “making use of their natural right” and with “the freedom they have, to strongly express, always peacefully, their concern and their demands regarding this imposition, more ideological than scientific”, decide to “participate in the context of their legitimate right, in the march against the imposition of gender ideology.”
The march is to be held Aug. 14.
