Mexican archbishop reminds polticians of Church's support for human rights

.- Archbishop Rafael Romo Munoz of Tijuana admonished candidates in Mexico’s upcoming local and national elections that “any proposal they promote that goes against human rights will be opposed by the Catholic Church.”

The archbishop reminded the faithful who will be going to the polls that, as Christians, “We have the right to defend life,” and that they should “seek out leaders who pursue the growth of the country in every sense through paths of justice and peace.”

Likewise, the Archbishop of Tijuana called on voters to “analyze the proposals of each candidate with a critical eye before casting their ballots.”

He also reminded candidates that they will not be allowed to "engage in campaigning in any church.”
