Queer Quote: Mexico Supreme Court On Marriage

This is a tweet from the official account of the Mexico Supreme Court, which last week issued a ruling striking down the discriminatory marriage laws of the Mexican state of Oaxaca. It is believed that this will lead to same-sex couples being able to get married anywhere in the country, which right now can only happen in Mexico City (Distrito Federal), although all other jurisdictions in the country must recognize those marriages.

A translation of the tweet (by Andres Duque of Blabbeando) is "It's unconstitutional that the final purpose of marriage should be the perpetuation of the species."

Can you imagine the United States Supreme Court sending out such a message in any written opinion, let alone via social media?
