The National Front for the Family (FNF) charged that the possibility ban on Nativity scenes on public property in Mexico would be “an enormous absurdity” and “a devious attack on religious freedom.”
In a statement to ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish-language sister news agency, Rodrigo Iván Cortés, president of FNF, warned that “religious freedom is under attack in Mexico.”
On Nov. 9, the First Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) will study a constitutional-protection lawsuit that opposes the placement of “decorative objects alluding to the ‘birth of Jesus Christ’ in the months of December and January” on public property.
The legal challenge was filed against the Chocholá City Council in the Mexican state of Yucatán. However, if the suit is upheld by the Supreme Court, it would pave the way for this ban to be imposed throughout the country.
