Another Step Leftward for the Supreme Court

This week's upholding of Mexico City's same-sex marriage law goes just a little bit further to establish the nation's Supreme Court as a bulwark of social liberalism. Assuming the attitude of the Court toward lefty laws continues, what you may well see in Mexico in 30 years is a nation with Guanajuato and DF at Texas-vs-Amsterdam extremes, and with every other state carving out their own space somewhere in between vis à vis gay marriage, abortion, and the like.

The Church, not surprisingly, is less than pleased. More here and here.
