Bishop Paprocki Statement on Supreme Court Decision

Today the US Supreme Court overturned laws forbidding marriage between people of the same sex. I join many voices in denouncing this decision.

This misfortune now attempts on a national basis what the State of Illinois sought to do in 2013 in attempting to redefine marriage to include same-sex couples. It was an “attempt” because the State has no moral authority to change what God has created. The government certainly has the legal power in civil law to coerce its definition, but that does not make it morally valid in the higher realm of supernatural realities.
