Cardinal George Blasts Gay Marriage in Letter
Chicago's Cardinal Francis George has written a letter he asked be posted in churches. George oversees the Archdiocese of Chicago, which serves more than 2 million Catholics in northeastern Illinois.
In the letter, George claims that the law is bad because it'll contribute to "the further dissolution of marriage and family life." He also says that all people must be respected without exception.
Gov. Pat Quinn will sign legislation later this week to make Illinois the next state to allow same-sex marriage. Backers have called it a matter of equality and civil rights. They've also cast it as a way to keep families together.
