Bishop urges people to say 'no' to same-sex marriage

SPRINGFIELD -- A local bishop isn't enthusiastic about the Marriage Equality Bill.   Today Bishop Thomas John Paprocki sent a letter to Catholic leaders around the state.  He asked them to read it during their services this weekend.

    In it he says, "The pending bill would, for the first time in our state's history, redefine marriage to legally recognize same-sex marriages.  But neither two men nor women.. can possibly form a marriage.  Our law would be lying if it said that they could."

    He also urges people to contact their representatives about voting 'no.'
