Governor Quinn to meet with Illinois Bishops
The Chicago Tribune reports today that His Eminence Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Archbishop of Chicago, has written to Governor Pat Quinn (D), a Catholic, requesting to discuss with him several issues of concern. The first of which is, as Cardinal George wrote, "your personal approval of laws permitting the killing of unborn children." The Governor's support of civil unions is also a topic the Bishops would like to discuss with him.
