Here's a shocker - The pope backs Mexico's bishops against marriage equality

Pope Francis
According to Brietbart's Thomas D. Williams (a research fellow at Notre Dame), Pope Francis is supportive of Mexico's Catholic bishops in their efforts to thwart marriage equality. Was there ever a doubt? In many ways these are many of the same people that failed so miserably to prevent equality in the United States. Mexico is their Mulligan.
As a political battle rages in Mexico over a proposal to legalize same-sex marriage, Pope Francis jumped into the fray Sunday by publicly siding with the Mexican bishops against the government.
On Saturday, the National Front for the Family staged a major demonstration in Mexico City, marching across the city to express their opposition to the measure proposed by Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in favor of same-sex marriage.
The National Front for the Family is the national front organization of the Catholic Church. Later on:

The Mexican bishops have been vocal opponents of the scheme, and earlier this month, a number of bishops and priests led marches in different states against same-sex marriage and gay adoption. One of the bishops who has forcefully opposed the legislation is Pedro Pablo Elizondo of Cancun, who said that he’s “willing to go to prison to defend the family,” if it should come to that.
Maybe Pedro can explain the circumstances that could lead to his imprisonment. That makes no sense whatsoever. And if you are patient we'll get to the pope's favorite hobby:
Peña’s proposed bill also entails educational reform to include “gender education” in schools, something that Pope Francis has stridently rejected, referring to it as a form of “ideological colonization.” 
By the way, as long as people are in the market for bullshit at Breitbart I noticed the following ad in the margins:
