Springfield's Bishop Paprocki Thankful for Gay-Marriage Failure


Springfield’s leading catholic figure is thanking those who helped stop a vote on same-sex marriage.

 

In a statement over the weekend, Bishop Thomas John Paprocki says he commends the efforts of all who helped dissuade the Illinois House from voting for the bill that would allow same-sex marriage.

 

In his statement Paprocki says the “notion of marriage between people of the same sex is contrary to natural law.”

 

The Illinois Senate passed the bill on Valentines day, but the House failed to take up the measure before the legislative session ended.
