Bishop Paprocki Hails Hobby Lobby Ruling As Victory For Religious Freedom


Springfield’s Catholic Bishop says a Supreme Court ruling that allows business to reject some government mandates on religious grounds is a welcome decision that could have wider ramifications in the long run. 

 

Bishop Thomas John Paprocki says the decision in the Hobby Lobby case is an important defense of religious freedom… and thinks the same logic could be used in other cases, such as businesses who may not want to provide services to married same-sex couples because of religious objections.

 

Paprocki will lead a prayer rally outside the Illinois Capitol building Tuesday at noon, part of the Church's "Fortnight for Freedom" prayer effort in defense of religious freedom.
