The Las Cruces Diocese is speaking out after Doña Ana County Clerk announced Wednesday that his office would begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The New Mexico Conference of Catholic Bishops says, "We, the Catholic bishops of New Mexico, reiterate our previous statement on same-sex marriage: The tradition of marriage between one man and one woman comes to us not only from the Judeo-Christian tradition, but it has been witnessed in cultures throughout the world for many millennia.

We believe this institution of marriage to be unique and irreplaceable for only does the sexual union of a man and woman bring forth children."
