Attorney General Wants Supreme Court to Nix Mexico City’s Gay Marriage Law

Mexico City’s stab at marriage equality is facing a similar challenge to California’s: On the basis of “protecting the children,” the country’s attorney general is appealing to Mexico’s Supreme Court to void the law. Also because letting gays marry in the nation’s capital is unconstitutional!

Expect a showdown. City officials say they’re sticking to plans to implement the law on March 4. But the attorney general is hoping the Supreme Court will step in and stay the law until a ruling is issued. Its main argument? Civil unions, which Mexico currently has, are good enough for the gays.

    Would you say the same thing if the men in the picture were Chippendale models, or is that just your own homophobia showing?

    Um…judging from your comment, it would appear that it is you who needs to get one.

    With your piss poor attitude toward gays, I somehow can’t see people like you getting people to hate us any the less. Comments like your first one, only serve to feed into and support that hatred.

    Uh, huh, because heterosexuals are all soooooo vanilla…every single one of them in every thing they do.

    Just google for Weird Weddings and take a gander.

    I wonder if Heterosexuals ask themselves during a “Vampire” or a
    “Star Wars” themed wedding underwater or para-sailing from a cliff if anybody might hate them for being freaks? I doubt it. But then again, we are to be held to a different standard because our civil rights are in jeopardy. Right?

    Soooo, let us all behave properly so as not to offend the hater-o-sexuals. Hands folded in laps… comb your hair…sit up “straight”…dress sensibly…and, for god’s sake…don’t look queer!
