Same-sex 'marriage' debate distracts government from 'real social problems,' Mexican lawyers say


The president of the College of Catholic Lawyers of Mexico, Armando Martinez, expressed regret this week that the Mexico City Legislative Assembly is not concerned with "real social problems" and is instead dedicated to promoting gay “marriage” through a reform of the Civil Code.

“There is no time in this era of crisis for the Legislative Assembly to be ignoring real social problems and concentrating on political banalities,” Martinez said noting that the city already recognizes same-sex civil unions. However, “not even a thousand people are affected by the law in a city of 20 million.”

Martinez called on lawmakers to withdraw support for the measure which would only lead to more polarization among Mexicans and challenged them to provide concrete proof as to why such a measure is needed.
