Read: Advent behind him, Chicago's Cardinal George returns to same ol' scapegoating

by Jeremy Hooper

The Illinois state legislature is expected to open the civil marriage equality debate as soon as today. But first, Chicago's Cardinal George will try to stifle progress by using his personally held faith opinions (which are unaffected by the civil marriage licensing process):

I should note that the marriage materials on the ILCatholic.org link to which Cardinal George points his supporters actually advises gays to enter the so-called "Courage" program and proceed to lead celibate lives. So since the Cardinal wants to the legislature to consider his views on marriage, then I insist they also consider these, the Illinois Catholic Conference's clearly stated suggestions extending well beyond the ring finger!
