MEXICO CITY (AP) — A state legislator in Mexico is causing a stir by asking authorities not to allow gay weddings in public spaces because it confuses children in a state that just approved same-sex civil unions.
Colima state lawmaker Rafael Mendoza says mothers came to him with complaints after a wedding took place between a U.S. man and a Mexican man in the main plaza of the city of Cuauhtemoc.
He said Tuesday that society is not ready to watch gay weddings, saying the mothers didn't know what to tell their kids when the two men dressed in charro suits kissed.
Leaders of Mendoza's leftist party have complained he should have informed them before making the request. A rival political group says it will file a human rights complaint charging Mendoza with discrimination.
