In a statement to La Nacion President Arias says:

“Yes should have legal recognition. One does not choose sexual orientation. That gives it nature or God. One does not choose, neither men nor women. “It goes against nature to believe that anybody feels to think at age 14 if it’s heterosexual or homosexual. These are things that God sends you simply have to evolve and accept them,”

He added that “the Church (Catholic) will have to evolve” in its position on homosexuality, it has expressed strong opposition to the bill that was tabled in the Legislative Assembly for three years.
