Mexican Soap Star Shills For Yes On 8
Anti-gay Mexican soap star and singer Eduardo Verastegui made this new Spanish-language ad for Yes On 8. His support for Prop 8 has already caused a protest in Mexico City.
Mexican-American movie star Eduardo Verastegui has begun campaigning against California's homosexual "marriage" law, and is incurring the wrath of Mexican homosexuals as a result. Following Verastegui's reported decision to lead the campaign for the Hispanic organization "Viva la Familia" (Long Live the Family) enraged members of "Tri Gay", Mexico's self-proclaimed "gay soccer selection" expressed their displeasure against the pro-life, pro-family actor and entertainer.Verastegui, recently an American citizen, is a devout Catholic and anti-abortion activist who refuses to kiss female co-stars on screen because he is not married to them. But apparently he has no problem with appearing in soft-core porn.
At a press conference on October 22 in the offices of Mexico's Secretary of Health, the team denounced Verastegui. The vice-president of Tri Gay, Eduardo Velasquez, tore up a picture of the star. Calling the action a "message of condemnation of his actions," Velasquez said that the destruction of the picture was meant "as an act of rejection of all those who promote homophobia" according to Mexico's El Universal newspaper.
