Springfield’s Catholic bishop is making waves again with new comments about same-sex marriage.
Bishop Thomas John Paprocki told the website LifeSiteNews.com last week that his fight against gay marriage… including prayers of exorcism offered last year… come from love, not hatred. And Paprocki compared it to a parent having to discipline or punish a child that has done something wrong.
That comparison furthered angered gay rights supporters.
But Paprocki says he’s gotten lots of support from the Catholic faithful and people of other faiths…and says his opponents are trying to advance a secular agenda.
