A woman in Mexico has gone viral after spraying “holy water” on a gay couple who were hugging each other outside a church.

The woman, who claimed to be a member of the church’s congregation, accused Leonardo Hernandez and his partner of spreading immorality to the country’s youth.

In a video recorded by the couple, the woman can be heard asking them to leave while spraying them with water and making the sign of the cross. Following the “sacrament”, she called the police.

During her conversation with local authorities, the lady can be heard saying the couple is “not welcomed in the church’s premises” and argues the law does not allow them to do “immoral acts in the Lord’s house”.

“I don’t even think they are Mexican, I think they are migrants,” she continued. “They come from other depraved countries to teach immorality to the youth here.”

A bystander intervened to defend the couple, telling the woman, “They are not doing anything. They are just sitting here.”

The video on TikTok, which has accumulated more than 400,000 views, was posted by Hernandez. He also appears to speak with the police officer on the phone, arguing he didn’t think they were doing anything wrong by hugging each other.

The video ends with the police officer telling Hernandez he had told the woman her words were “discriminatory” but asked Hernandez and his partner to leave the premises.

The encounter took place outside a Catholic church in Toluca, a city located about 50 miles west of Mexico City.

Premier has contacted the church and the Mexican Episcopal Conference for comment.
