If you live in Illinois (or have friends who do) this is an urgent request to call your state reps and demand they not vote for the civil union bill (SB1716) that some are trying to sneak through the lame duck session.
Cardinal George and the entire Catholic Conference of Illinois have issued a letter opposing the bill, noting that “Language in the bill offers little protection in the context of litigation that religious institutions and individuals will face if this bill is adopted.”
Once again, gay advocates are attempting to circumvent the democratic process by pushing through legislation which threatens religious liberty (and Catholic institutions of higher learning), in this case by taking advantage of a lameduck session.
Please visit the official Illinois General Assembly website and starting calling representatives (starting with your own if you know who they are) and demand that they vote against this harmful bill, no. SB1716!
