Risto Mejide, in ‘Everything is a lie’
Mejide gave an example of other reasons that the Civil Guard already used in its social networks. A flag of Mexico, the purple bow for the 8M or the black crepe for the official mourning due to the coronavirus. « The case we are debating is this, and it is not allowed. You can try to take me on other lines but I have been called to speak on this subject and I will speak only on this, which is against the law, « settled the lawyer.
The presenter was not silent about the organization’s position: « You are against this case … I hope many people are against you in this caseCastellanos replied offended: « Isn’t that a hate crime? », But Mejide was not willing to consent to the fallacy. « No, having an opinion contrary to yours is not a hate crime, it is defending integration and diversity« stressed the Catalan.
Making it clear that « they have every right in the world to file a lawsuit, » Risto assured that his « hope » is that many people will stand against Christian Lawyers « because I believe that an inclusive country, and rights and freedoms must be defended from all institutions and that those who attack that defense directly must have many people against it. «
« We are not equidistant »
« If there is a law that defends what you defend, I hope that this law ends up being changed, because I believe in a country in which we all fit, » Mejide defended before dismissing, although the truth is that no law prohibits modifying the logo in this way. , as confirmed by Joan Miquel Perpinyà, journalist and former Civil Guard, the first who openly declared himself gay 18 years ago. « Thank you both for giving us your views, although this program, of course, is not equidistant on this issue« reaffirmed the presenter.
