Cardinal Francis George issued a letter Tuesday calling laws permitting same-sex marriage a ‘legal friction’ and directing Catholics to contact state legislators about the proposed gay marriage bill. His statement comes days after Rep. Greg Harris Chicago and State Sen. Heather Steans Chicago introduced the bill in the general assembly.
The Cardinal finishes by saying’ Doses this mean nature is cruel? No Nature is what it is and that is the way it is.’ Rick Garica of the Civil Rights Agenda’s Equal Marriage Illinois a ‘secular project that should not worry the church and people have rights to do what they want.’
In this writer’s opinion, We agree with the cardinal. Marriage is between a man and woman in marriage. We only have to see what the Bible says about Homosexuals in early Chapters? Also, It not constitutional as there is a separation of church and state . This begun as we know by the founding fathers. The government has no business telling a church or us as citizens what to do! What next? Have seven wifes or husbands? Marry your sister or brother?
The U.S. Constitution has to be continued because as we see it. First freedom to worship. Next, take away the freedom of speech and press. Next Take away the right to bear arms and protect our homes. Finally, you freedom altogether. Is this what we want? No If you live in Illinois, go to www.catholic.org and find the leadership of both parties and say NO unconstitutional ideas and radicalism !
