Bishop Juan Antonio Reig Pla of Segorbe-Castellón, Spain, said this week the legal challenge brought by the Popular Party against Spain’s new gay marriage law would clarify if the new law is constitutional.

Speaking to local media, the bishop said the decision by the Popular Party to challenge the law “will clarify for Spaniards something that is very important because if affects the life of marriage and the family.”

“We are all interested in knowing that we have a way to regulate the personal rights laid out in the Constitution, and thus the ruling of the Constitutional Court interests us in order to live with certainty about what our juridical statutes are,” said Bishop Reig Pla.
