Mexican governor: Gay marriage ‘grosses me out’
GUADALAJARA, Mexico — The governor of Mexico’s Jalisco state says gay marriages disgust him.
Gov. Emilio Gonzalez says marriage should be between a man and a woman. He adds, in his words, “that other thing, as they say, still grosses me out.”
Gonzalez spoke Friday at a forum on family in Guadalajara city.
Guadalajara has been a focal point of Mexico’s debate over gay marriage, which sharpened after Mexico City enacted a law in December allowing same-sex couples to wed and adopt children.
Cardinal Juan Sandoval, the archbishop of Guadalajara, stirred controversy by suggesting Mexico City’s government bribed the Supreme Court to uphold the law in August.
Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard filed a defamation suit against Sandoval.
