The Archbishop of Chicago, Cardinal Francis George and his six auxiliary bishops distributed a letter on January 1 that referred to same-sex marriage “an affront to reason and the common good of society.” In a report by the Chicago Tribune, Cardinal George asked Catholics to lobby politicians to resist the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act, which would make same sex marriage legal in the state of Illinois. Citing Holy Scripture and natural law, the cardinal archbishop explained that heterosexual relations between a man and woman in marriage serves two inter-twined purposes of procreation and the expression of enduring love.
