LIMA, August 19, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The vast majority of Peruvians are opposed to homosexual “marriage,” according to a new poll conducted by the Peruvian Company for Market and Public Opinion Studies (CPI).
Seventy-one percent of respondents said that they were against the creation of homosexual “marriage,” while only 21 percent approved, and seven percent refused to answer.
Polls in Argentina and Mexico, where measures establishing homosexual “marriage” have been passed at the national and local levels, also show strong majorities against the concept.
The poll undertaken by CPI comes in the wake of “civil union” legislation proposed for homosexual couples by members of two different political parties. The EFE Agency reports that the bills have stirred a national debate over the issue.
