Well, what do you know?
In my opinion, there are more important issues President Enrique Pena Nieto needs to be concerned with in his country. Drug and human trafficking, corrupted police, missing college and middle school students who were taken by government officials, poverty. Why do these few leaders think they can quickly push same-sex marriage when the people are against it?
Is President Nieto doing this so the many illegals that left Mexico will return? Why now? Some are saying it’s because of he’s polling very low and needs some support charge.
Tens of thousands of people across Mexico marched on Saturday to protest against gay marriage, challenging President Enrique Pena Nieto’s proposal to recognize same-sex marriage throughout the traditionally conservative country.
The marches were called by the National Front for the Family, a coalition of civil society organizations and various religious groups, and were expected to continue throughout the day from Mexico’s far north to the Yucatan peninsula.
Same sex marriage is permitted in Mexico City, as well as in several states including Coahuila, Quintana Roo, Jalisco, Nayarit, Chihuahua and Sonora. Pena Nieto has proposed changing the constitution to allow it nationally.
The embattled leader, who is grappling with discontent over a slowing economy, conflict of interest scandals, drug gang violence and a visit by U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump that led to his finance minister’s ouster, says Congress should debate and settle the issue of gay marriage.
I am against same-sex marriage but whatever they choose to do in Mexico is their business and their business alone. Nobody from the United States should be sticking their heads into the affairs of Mexico or giving them ideas. I do believe there are some advocates from the U.S. over there poking their noses where it doesn’t belong.
