(CNA)-Brazilian bishops are criticizing a recent decision that gives a de facto green light to same-sex marriage, reports Global Post.

On Tuesday, the National Council of Justice (NCJ), a panel which oversees the South American state’s legal system and is headed by the chief justice of the Supreme Court, said government offices that issue marriage licenses had no standing to reject gay couples.

“Same sex unions cannot simply be equated to marriage or family, which are based on matrimonial consent, in the spirit of complementarity and reciprocity between a man and a woman, open to the procreation and education of children,” the Confederation of Brazilian Bishops said in a statement Thursday.
