Gay rights in Mexico

It is hard for me to believe that a country where you can be killed for driving the wrong kind of truck, has a better developed sense of human rights than the United States (at least to when it comes to gay rights). Texas Freethought writes:

The past week we wrote about how the Mexican Supreme Court had deemed all same-sex marriages from the nation’s capital as legal in all 31 states. However, we mentioned that the court still needed to vote on whether same-sex couples would be able to continue to legally adopt children.

They go on to write about the Supreme Court confirming the right for same-sex couples to adopt children. How does Mexico move ahead of the United States on this? I’ll never understand.

I’m happy that gay couples will be able to live as a family. I’m happy that needy kids will find a loving home. Why can’t we have this in the United Status? Is it possible that Mexico is more of a secular country than the US? Did they really stand up to the Pope?

Go Mexico – can you work on the whole gang violence thing? I’d like to come back for another visit.
