While traveling in Mexico, two Vatican prelates have criticized Mexico City’s new gay marriage law. The marriages of gay and lesbian couples are an imitation, the bishops said, Mexico’s El Universal reported.

“A gay relationship is like decaffeinated coffee, you do not wake up,” Father Gonzalo Miranda, a bioethics professor at Regina Apostolorum University, a pontifical university, said.

Miranda, along with Monsignor Elio Sgreccia, president emeritus of the Pontification Academy for Life in the Vatican, are in Mexico participating in a series of academic conferences commemorating the 20th anniversary of the founding of the School of Bioethics at the Universidad Anahuac in Huixquilucan state. The bishops criticized Mexico City’s new law at a press conference held on Wednesday.
