Police estimated 15,000 peaceful marchers came out in defense of the family and marriage against militant gay activists in Argentina on June 19, 2010 rallying Argentinians to vote “in favor of matrimony between one man and one woman.”

Archbishop José Maria Arancibi marched along these peaceful protesters in defense of children.

The crowd of thousands moved towards the Provincial Legislature, encouraging senators to acknowledge that “the family, based on the matrimony between a man and a woman is the natural form in which children come into the world” and it is the right place where they can be “received, raised and educated.”

The protestors also demanded that “laws in relation to family issues need to meet the real needs of the weakest and those who are socially compromised; they should not solely represent the particular interests of a select few groups in Buenos Aires, as has been confirmed.”

In debates held at the National University of Cuyo before the march, psychologist Andrew Gottfried said that “Children need the support and guidance of a male father and a female mother, as they are able to grant from their unique psychology, roles and natures, everything that is necessary for stimulating a child’s healthy growth.”

If only our own bishops would actually exercise their duties in our country, abortion would be eliminated within one generation.  Instead they refuse to do what is right.

  1. Yes, T. Shaw, they do, but facho (meaning “fascist”) is much commoner. Do you want less taxes and more production? Facho! Do you think children who are for adoption have lost a father and a mother and that’s what they should get? Facho! Are you worried about Big Government? Facho! And so forth.

  2. I didn’t realize this was an issue in Argentina. I thought we were the only crazies on this side of the Atlantic (at least with respect to this issue).
