Protests Planned Outside Sunday Mass At Springfield's Cathedral Over Paprocki Comments


Several local groups plan to protest outside Springfield’s Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception Sunday morning. 

 

The self-described “secularist” groups object to recent statements by Catholic bishop Thomas John Paprocki about next month’s elections.  Paprocki told local Catholics that parts of the national Democratic Party platform represent “intrinsic evils,” such as abortion rights and same-sex marriage.  Paprocki says supporting candidates who back that platform could put a Catholic voter’s eternal salvation in jeopardy. 

 

The protestors say the bishop’s comments violate the principle of separation between church and state.
