Church continues counter-attack on Mexican Supreme Court for allowing same-sex ‘marriages,’ adoptions by homosexuals; cardinal sued for his remarks

Mexico City, Mexico, Aug 18, 2010 (CNA) — The Archdiocese of Mexico City has ripped the country’s Supreme Court for ruling to allow adoption by same-sex couples and warned that its members have become “accomplices of the psycho-emotional and moral tragedies that in the future may fall upon innocent children who are victims of this kind of adoption.”

In a statement signed by spokesman Fr. Hugo Valdemar, the archdiocese also noted that countless Christian families lament “the reckless, irresponsible and unjust decision” of the court, which issued its ruling on Monday “ignoring the international scientific studies against the adoption of children by same-sex couples.”

He said that some members of the court have gone to the extreme of acting against the natural law and against children. “All those responsible for their unfortunate decision which has now become law will have to answer to the Supreme Court of God, to their families and to history itself,” the priest warned.

Dr. Orozco began his talk by confirming that the conservation of the Tilma, the cloak of St. Juan Diego on which Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared 478 years ago, “is completely beyond any scientific explanation.”

The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe was miraculously imprinted by Mary on the tilma, or cloak, of St. Juan Diego in 1531. The image has numerous unexplainable phenomena, such as the appearance on Mary’s eyes of those present in the room when the tilma was opened and the image’s lack of decay.

Mrs. Clinton was received on Thursday at 8:15 a.m. by the rector of the Basilica, Msgr. Diego Monroy.

Msgr. Monroy took Mrs. Clinton to the famous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which had been previously lowered from its usual altar for the occasion.

After observing it for a while, Mrs. Clinton asked “who painted it?” to which Msgr. Monroy responded “God!”
