Mexican Bishop Says HOMOPHOBES Are ‘Sick’ And 'Heartless’
Bishop José Raúl Vera López of the Mexican Roman Catholic Diocese of Saltillo has advocated for LGBT people for some time. In an interview with El País, he went even a step further.
When asked about homsexuality, Vera said we cannot 'cancel a person’s richness’ because of their orientation. “That is sick, that is heartless, that is lacking common sense.”
Though conservative on social issues such as the legalization of drugs, prostitution, and abortion, Vera is resolute in his support for the LGBT community.
The 69-year-old was sent to his current diocese in the arid Mexican state as a punishment. Home of the drug cartel Los Zetas, Vera has survived a record number of death threats and assassination attempts while working to help, immigrants, natives, prostitutes, young people, and victims pf the drug cartel.
