Diocese encourages Governor and
to enact marriage equality in Illinois
The Evangelical Catholic Diocese of
the Northwest calls upon Governor Quinn and the Illinois State
Legislature to complete the process of enacting marriage equality
for gender common couples.
Bishop James Wilkowski feels that
“this is the secular season of Advent for which many of our
state-wide family have been anticipating – the fulfillment of
unconditional human rights and dignity.”
The Diocese calls upon our state
wide leaders to complete this next step in the evolution of human
rights as quickly as possible.
