Thousands of people on Saturday turned out to demonstrate against a recent ruling by Mexico's highest court that effectively allows gay and lesbian couples to marry.

The ruling, handed down last month, declares state bans unconstitutional but falls short of striking them down. However, district judges are now obligated to grant injunctions to gay couples who are denied a marriage license.

Demonstrators marched through the streets of Guadalajara, the capital of Jalisco, chanting slogans such as “We want children with mom and dad” and “A united family will not be defeated.”

The march was organized by the 230-member coalition “Jalisco is one for the children” and endorsed by Cardinal Francisco Robles Ortega, the Roman Catholic archbishop of Guadalajara.
