Story by Matt Simonette, courtesy Windy City Times:

In a letter that he asked to be included in all church bulletins throughout the Chicago Archdiocese, Cardinal Francis George predicted dire consequences as a result of same-sex marriage coming to Illinois.

According to NBC5, George said that "there will be consequences for the Church and society that will become clearer as the law is used to sue for discrimination."

He added that the new law is "bad law because it will contribute over the long run to the further dissolution of marriage and family life, which are the bedrock of any society."
