Gay marriage is now legal everywhere in Mexico

The Mexican Supreme Court ruled Monday in favor of gay marriage. Indeed, denying the right to marry to persons of the same sex, would be to consider them as second class citizens and question their integrity and their dignity.

So far, only three States 32 had legislated in favor of gay marriage in Mexico. The ruling overturns the most conservative states must harmonize their laws on pain of being declared unconstitutional.

The argument of procreation - the ultimate goal of marriage - advocated by these States was swept by judges who give priority to "the protection of the family as a social reality."

The Catholic Church hardly limping along while the Mexican episcopate was quick to criticize the supreme court which would, according to him, no authority in the creation of new forms of marriage.
