After 86 years of domination in Mexico’s state governments, the country’s Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) suffered a landslide defeat in recent elections, with the unprecedented upset coming shortly after Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto launched a new initiative to amend the constitution to legalize same-sex “marriage” nationwide.
Public outrage over the PRI member president’s push for homosexual marriage in the predominantly Catholic nation was expressed at the ballot box. Peña Nieto’s devastating loss also marks the first time since his party was created back in 1929 that it does not hold a majority of state governorships in Mexico.
The PRI’s flagging influence in Mexico was witnessed at the polls throughout country.
“Out of 17 states holding elections on June 5, the PRI won only five states and lost four states with 19 percent of the country’s population,” LifeSiteNews reports. “The result is that the PRI now holds the governorship in only 15 of the country’s 31 states, with 45 percent of Mexico’s population.”
In addition to losing control of many of Mexico’s governorships, the PRI lost its power in the nation’s Federal District, as well.
President-induced LGBT propaganda
Besides pushing the homosexual agenda through the political system, President Peña Nieta attempted to indoctrinate children to embrace LGBT behavior and lifestyles through Mexico’s school system.
“The president’s initiative, announced on May 17, includes a massive propaganda campaign to convince public school students and the population in general that homosexuality and transgenderism are normal and morally acceptable, as well as membership in the United Nations’ ‘LGBT Core Group’ — a coalition of nations promoting the homosexual agenda worldwide,” LifeSiteNews’ Matthew Cullinan Hoffman informed.
Challenging the PRI’s full-fledged effort to mainstream homosexual behavior, the Catholic Church and pro-family groups throughout the nation formed a united front to defend natural marriage and biblical sexuality.
“Peña Nieto’s new pro-gay offensive was met with condemnation by the leadership of the Catholic Church in Mexico, as well as [by] the creation of the National Front for the Family — a coalition of over a thousand organizations united to defeat the initiative and to protect the traditional definition of marriage,” Hoffman explained. “The National Front for the Family held protests throughout the country on June 1 and 2, and PRI elected officials began to abandon the president, stating their opposition to the initiative and promising their constituents they would vote against it.”
There is little doubt that the former ruling party’s downfall was the direct results of its aggressive push for same-sex marriage.
“The cause of the PRI’s defeat cited most often in the Mexican media was the president’s homosexual ‘marriage’ initiative,” continued Hoffman. “Although it remains to be proved that the PRI’s massive electoral loss was due to the unpopularity of the proposed constitutional amendment, polls indicate that Mexicans are both dissatisfied with Peña Nieto’s presidency and opposed to homosexual ‘marriage.’”
As the leader of the activist organization, CitizenGO, Luis Losada Pescador insists that the former president and his party suffered the consequences for challenging the traditional biblical values embraced by most Mexican citizens.
“Peña Nieto and the PRI have paid the price at the ballot box for presenting initiatives against Mexican values,” contended Pescador, whose pro-family group is part of the National Front for the Family’s coalition. “It may be that Peña Nieto is trying to win foreign friends, but he has reaped internal rejection.”
Numbers don’t lie
Commenting on the electoral results, Felipe Gallardo Martin del Campo, who serves as the Bishop of Veracruz, contends that because the overwhelming majority of Mexicans don’t ascribe to the homosexual lifestyle, the PRI met its doom — a fate that he believes will also fall on other parties who try to push the LGBT agenda.
“[N]ormal Mexicans, who are 99 percent [of the population], don’t accept marriage between people of the same sex, and the proof of this are the protests that have been held throughout the country,” the bishop argued. “[Other parties] should work harder and not commit the same errors because they know that in the next election, the people are not going to vote for their party.”
Statistics in Mexico continue to indicate that even with the latest push to normalize homosexual behavior throughout the nation, most Mexicans are still not prepared to embrace the unbiblical practices of same-sex marriage and abortion.
“Recent polls show that Mexicans continue to oppose the creation of homosexual ‘marriage,’ with percentages against it ranging from 44 percent to 62 percent over the last three years, and percentages from 36 percent to 52 percent in favor,” LifeSiteNews reports. “A majority of Mexicans continue to oppose the legalized killing of the unborn in most cases, as well.”
