MEXICO CITY, July 31, 2015 (ChurchMilitant.com) - Tens of thousands of people marched in Mexico last Saturday to protest the country's recent Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex "marriage."

The decision rendered void many pre-existing state constitutions defining marriage as between a man and woman.

So Mexicans took to the streets under the "Mexico is One for the Children" slogan. 

Sofia Miranda, one of its organizers, sent a letter to Mexico's hostile media clarifying, "We are not against any person; we are against this Supreme Court imposition." She warns, echoing Pope Francis, that recognizing same-sex unions as somehow being a form of marriage "opens the door to gender ideology and will destabilize our society and damage our children."

"This is what we dont want," she states.

Marchers are calling for more parental rights, as children across the country are increasingly exposed to unnatural and perverse forms of sexuality — all in the guise of "education."

Some of the more well-known cities that the protests took place in were Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara, Culiacán, Los Mochis, Aguascalientes and Ciudad Juárez, with Guadalajara seeing the biggest crowd. Those responsible for starting and planning the events said there were more than 80,000 people in attendance. Some of the media, however, lowballed the number to be as low as only a few thousand.

More protests are planned in other Mexican cities on August 15, the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
