200,000 Puerto Ricans Demonstrate Against Gay Marriage

More than 200,000 Christians gathered this week in Puerto Rico’s capital in protest of proposals that would grant legal recognition to gay couples, saying that they are standing up for traditional values and protecting the institution of the family.

“We are concerned that laws will be created to discriminate against the church … We are concerned that public education will be used to change our children, presenting them with behaviors their parents don’t think are correct,” said Cesar Vazquez Muñiz, spokesman for Puerto Rico for the Family, the organization behind the protest, as reported by The Huffington Post.

“This demonstration tells the government that there are things that they cannot touch and those are marriage and family,” Muñiz added.

The “Puerto Rico Stands Up” campaign has been drawing hundreds of thousands of believers since Monday morning in the capital city of San Juan, bringing traffic to a standstill as the gay rights debate in the U.S. commonwealth nation continues. Puerto Rico currently does not recognize same-sex unions of any kind.

    Good job Cesar Vazquez Muñiz! Considering the interview with President Obumfuc after Libyan terrorist killed our ambassador, maybe it will take Puerto Rico, Mexico,Ted Cruise and Rubio to break the legs of the IGNORANT current Marxists Muslim in the White House.

    WILL BE? WILL BE? I think that ship has already sailed.

    I’ve always said that the Democrat Party will eventually lose the Hispanic vote because of these anti-religious social issues. They may be red-assed apes, but they still don’t cotton to abortion or gay marriage. Republicans should concentrate on social issues when addressing them…. and pretty much only when addressing them.
