Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto Wants to Legalize Gay Marriage

I do, I do, I do! 

The Associated Press reports:
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Tuesday proposed legalizing gay marriage, a move that would enshrine on a national level a Supreme Court ruling last year that it was unconstitutional for states to bar same-sex couples from wedding. Speaking at an event on the International Day Against Homophobia, Mr. Peña Nieto said he signed initiatives that would seek to add same-sex marriage provisions to Mexico’s constitution and the national civil code. Mr. Peña Nieto said he would seek to reform Article 4 of the constitution to clearly reflect the Supreme Court opinion “to recognize as a human right that people can enter into marriage without any kind of discrimination.” “That is, for marriages to be carried out without discrimination on the basis of ethnicity or nationality, of disabilities, of social or health conditions, of religion, of gender or sexual preference,” he added. The profile page of Mr. Peña Nieto’s Twitter account was turned rainbow-colored Tuesday as he made the announcement.
