Mexico City Marriages survive court challenge

Timothy Kincaid

February 24th, 2010

After the city government of Mexico City legalized same-sex marriages, a number of challenges were raised. (from anti-gay website: LifeSite)

Five Mexican state governors are suing the nation’s Federal District, Mexico City, for legalizing homosexual “marriage” in December of last year.

The governors of the states of Jalisco, Tlaxcala, Guanajuato, Morelos, and Sonora say that the law is unconstitutional, and will require their state governments to recognize “marriages” between people of the same sex, despite the states’ rejection of such unions.

They have been declared invalid (LifeSite)

The Mexican Supreme Court has rejected lawsuits filed by several states to overturn Mexico City’s new homosexual “marriage” and adoption law.

The court stated that states need not recognize the marriages conducted in the capital. A suit brought by the Attorney General of the federal government is still pending.

What? Calderon hasn’t stacked their courts with right wing bigots like Bush and his repug party did? Good news! Viva Méjico!

They can use scare quotes all they want, but if it’s called a “marriage” then it is one.
