  1. This is really good.
    Sad though to see the church being its bigoted self as usual.

    Viva Mexico.
    Why does the rest of the world just not accept that some people are gay and would like to”formalise” their loving relationships, as much as their fellow heterosexual counterparts do.
    The church, as all religons do, will allways find a way to critisize LGBTS.

  3. ¡Viva México! ¡Vaya país!
    Lox mexicanos tienen muchos problemas y oír estas noticias alegra mucho.
    Long live Mexico! A hell of a country! Mexicans have lots of problems, so hearing this news is really cheering.

  4. Lo siento – claro que quería decir ‘los’, no ‘lox’.

  5. Yeah, and meanwhile the Catholic Church sends its bishops to Mexico to try and undermine Mexico City’s new gay marriage law, describing marriages of gay and lesbian couples as “an imitation”:

    “A gay relationship is like decaffeinated coffee, you do not wake up,” Father Gonzalo Miranda, bioethics professor at Regina Apostolorum University.

    For once I have to agree, the metaphor fully fits: heterosexual marriage is EXACTLY like real coffee:

    – a wholly artificial product
    – sown on appropriated lands
    – by a colonising power
    – using slavery and, later, exploitation
    – displacing natural ownership and sustainable production
    – while damaging the natural environment
    – wholly unethical and unsustainable
    – liable to produce neurosis and even heart attacks

    What an astute parallel! … that sounds absolutely right to me!

    Are we sure this moron isn’t actually AGAINST heterosexual marriage?

    ROFL, LMAO and LOL!

    What a DUNCE!

  6. Viva Mexico! My congrats to all the happily married couples. It looks as if the whole excuse that even if marriage equality is enacted, few or no same-sex couples will opt doesn’t wash in Mexico City. 398 couples married is not bad.

    Now, I would like to see the US start gettting with it and letting same sex couples marry.

    Hey guys, I’m Mexican and it’s really nice to be reading all your lovely comments. Also, I hope this legislation has a positive impact on the US. Cheers!

    I’ve found that many foreigners had chosen Mexico City for their same sex wedding, but many think that it’s very ‘Vegas style’, the process can take up to 40 days, and there’s a few paperwork to consider. Still it’s smooth if you know your ways around in the city and you come down prepared.
