Today in Illinois: Civil progress vs. prayerful removal of gay people's demons

by Jeremy Hooper

Just a reminder that two key events will happen today in Illinois. At one event, Democratic Governor Pat Quinn will sign marriage equality into law:

At the other event, Springfield Bishop Thomas Paprocki will hold an "exorcism," praying out the demons attached to same-sex married couples and our supporters:

Bishop Paprocki said that since same-sex marriage is contrary to the plan of God (see Genesis 1:27 and 2:24, Matthew 19:4-6 and Mark 10:6-9), those who contract civil same-sex marriage are culpable of serious sin. He also noted that politicians who enacted civil same-sex marriage legislation are "morally complicit as co-operators in facilitating this grave sin."

Pick your own adventure! In one, you might get the chance to see people casting out the bad spirits that have plagued the land for far too long; in the other, you might see an exorcism.
