More Progressive Policies from Ebrard
He's in favor of gay marriage. It's odd how this issue doesn't provoke much grass-roots anger here. Even in Coahuila, the conservative state where I live and where gay marriage was first legalized a couple years ago, I barely ever heard a word in passing about the measure, much less impassioned opposition. I'm not sure if the relative calm (at least compared to the States) is due to the absence of right-wing demagogues, or the nature of Mexican conservatism, or some other factor, but it's just not much of an issue here.
