posted (September 15, 2016)
Last night, we showed you the Deputy Prime Minister, Patrick Faber's press conference. He wanted, among other things, to clear up that the Church State Commission is merely a forum for the churches to share their concerns on any topic, not only matters of public morality. He was also making the point that the Commission does not have the power to make policies based the church's position; it only will have the ability to advise the Government on what course of action they should take, on different issues of national interest.

He told us that he has committed to Orozco that this dialog will happen.

The working group for the Church State Commission meets for the first time on September 26.
