Dear Faithful America member,
As U.S. Catholic bishops struggle to adapt to Pope Francis's vision for a more inclusive and welcoming Catholic Church, one Illinois bishop thinks he knows exactly what the pope would want him to do:
Blame marriage equality on the devil and schedule an "exorcism" at the same time the governor signs it into law.
According to Bishop Thomas Paprocki, the Illinois legislature is "morally complicit as co-operators in facilitating this grave sin … We must pray for deliverance from this evil which has penetrated our state and our church."
While other Catholics are working to put service to the poor and broken at the center of the church's ministry, Bishop Paprocki is embarrassing the church with a pointless political stunt, staging what he's calling "prayers of supplication and exorcism in reparation for the sin of same-sex marriage."
Let's show Bishop Paprocki -- and the dozens of media outlets that are already covering this story -- that everyday Catholics and other Christians are appalled and want him to cancel his plans for this "exorcism."
Thanks!
-- Michael and Aaron
