Mexican Capital Another Massachusetts

Posted by thelamp on November 16, 2006

The United States is not the only country fighting to preserve God’s plan for marriage and family. Last week, lawmakers in Mexico City overwhelmingly approved a bill legalizing same-sex civil unions in the Mexican capital.

With a vote of 43-to-17, Mexico City became only the second Latin American city to authorize gay unions, following Buenos Aires in 2002.

While gay activists are reinvigorated, the movement has inspired Bible believers south of the border to do whatever they can to prevent the trend from spreading to other Latin American cities. Next on the activists’ agenda is Coahuila, a city near the Texas border.

Since 1997, Mexico City has been governed by the left-leaning Democratic Revolutionary Party, or PRD, which has clashed with the church about such issues as marriage and abortion.

The law allowing civil unions is expected to take effect early next year and could be a stepping stone to full recognition of same-sex marriage and other measures.
The pressure on society to accept the audacious behaviors and disastrous consequences of homosexual activity is not a matter of cultural drift or shifting morals. Rather it is a carefully orchestrated, highly organized and extremely disciplined political program. And it is a program that has achieved extraordinary success in recent years.

“We must bombard heaven with prayers and intercessions, not just for our nation, but everywhere around the world where homosexual lobbyists and activists are turning the culture away from God,” said Pastor Parsley, who reminds Bible believers of God’s promise in 2 Chronicles 7:14. “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
