Letter: A spirit of inclusion
To the Editor:
As a Catholic, I am saddened by a recent letter from Bishop David Malloy of the Rockford Diocese. His letter, along with a statement on the Diocese of Rockford website – www.rockforddiocese.org – details the church’s position on Illinois House Bill 5170, which, if signed into law, would legalize same-sex marriage in the state of Illinois.
Once again, the Catholic bishops are asking the faithful to contact legislators to let them know of “our” opposition to the proposed legislation. Specifically, Bishop Malloy’s letter states: “At issue here is not a political or a policy question, but a fundamental statement about society itself. We need to be alerted to this danger.”
