Don't get civilly married, gays, or Bishop of church you might or might not choose to follow will cancel your slumber party

by Jeremy Hooper

I've been meaning to get to this story for a while, but my daddy put me in time out because I threw a temper tantrum when he told me I couldn't get a new Lego set:

The Illinois Roman Catholic bishop who conducted an exorcism service the day the state’s marriage equality bill was signed into law says he wasn’t being hateful — he was performing a “loving” act of discipline, like a parent correcting a child. And he has reiterated his belief same-sex marriage is “the work of the devil.”

“Any good parent will tell you that sometimes you have to discipline your children,” Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of the diocese of Springfield, the state capital, said in a recent video interview with
LifeSite News, an antigay or, in its own description, “pro-family” site. "Sometimes you have to say ‘no,’" Paprocki continued. "Sometimes you even have to punish.”

Says the man who is disallowed from having either children or a civil marriage. Not sure what it makes him an authority on this subject.

Now if you'll excuse me, it's past my bed time. I get in trouble if I stay up to late on a school night.
