Same-sex marriage is the work of the devil, according to Springfield’s Catholic bishop… who plans to offer prayers of exorcism next week at around the same time that Governor Pat Quinn will sign the bill allowing gay couples to marry.
Bishop Thomas John Paprocki says anyone who enters into a same-sex marriage is committing a serious sin… and any politicians who voted for or support the concept are facilitating that sin.
The bishop says Illinois politicians now have a moral obligation to work for the repeal of the upcoming law.
Paprocki plans to conduct “prayers of supplication and exorcism” in services at the Cathedral next Wednesday from 4 to 5pm.
Quinn will sign the same-sex marriage bill into law that afternoon in Chicago.
