¿Qué nos pasa Puerto Rico?

Curiosa la incomodidad que emerge en la cercanía. Intenté ocultarme del polémico debate actual de mi país.  Sobre todo de la desafortunada causa que le conmueve. Me refiero específicamente a la descarada unión aparente de estado e iglesia(s) en apoyo  a la elevación del matrimonio heterosexual a rango constitucional. Cuan discurso más hipócrita ninguno. Pero vamos, dejemos a otros/as que opinen, lo cierto es que mi posición figura sobre esta mesa en cada entrada, permitáme cederla la palabra a la prensa que a duras penas nos recuerda y que ello solo en función de nuestra retrógrada ideología animal.

 Zuanía Ramos escribe para el Huffingtonpost:

“Reaffirm the values of the “traditional” family and fight against gay rights, that was the mission of a group of more than 200,000 faithful Christians who met in “Puerto Rico Stands Up”, one of the largest pro-family demonstrations ever held in the U.S. commonwealth.

According to Puerto Rican daily El Vocero, from the early hours of Monday morning, members of different Christian denominations from all parts of the island began to gather in front of the Capitol building in the city capital of San Juan, paralyzing traffic in and out of the area.

With gospel music and banners alluding to the defense of exclusive marriage between men and women, participants also protested statements made by government officials seeking to grant rights to gay couples through new legislations.

Cesar Vazquez Muñiz, spokesman of Puerto Rico for the Family, the organization behind the activity, explained their purpose was to protect marriage and family values that would later affect future generations.

“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 Vazquez in an interview with El Vocero. “This demonstration tells the government that there are things that they cannot touch and those are marriage and family.””
