Bishop Thomas John Paprocki has joined the bishops of Illinois in calling upon the Illinois General Assembly to reject legislation that would establish civil unions in the state.

The Catholic Conference of Illinois (CCI), on behalf of Chicago Cardinal Francis George, OMI, and all the bishops of Illinois, released the statement Nov. 23. Senate Bill 1716 seeks to afford all the “legal obligations, responsibilities, protections, and benefits” of marriage to individuals in a civil union, the statement said.
