An interesting situation is developing in the Gay Marriage debate in Illinois. A conservative Pro Life group of Catholics are seeking to get Governor Quinn Excommunicated from the Roman Catholics Church according to LifeSiteNews a conservative on line Catholic blog.
The Rockford Pro-Life Initiative has called on Francis Cardinal George to excommunicate Governor Pat Quinn for his outspoken support of same-sex “marriage. According to the group Governor Quinn’s support for same-sex “marriage” puts him at odds with the leadership of the Catholic faith he claims to belong to. Three Illinois bishops released letters to be read from the pulpit in parishes statewide over the weekend opposing the legislation.
“If Cardinal George and all the Illinois Bishops declare that any politician who claims to be Catholic, including Gov. Quinn, [who] votes for a homosexual marriage bill would be automatically and publicly excommunicated, this would stand a very good chance of protecting marriage,” the group said in a statement.
The Rainbow Sash Movement is encouraged that Cardinal George is given a deaf ear to this type of nonsense in the name of orthodoxy. We are happy that he agrees with the Rainbow Sash Movement that such a action would only further deepen the divide between be reasonableness and unreasonableness in the gay marriage debate.
