PhoboQuotable - Cardinal Francis George
"Everyone has a right to marry, but no one has the right to change the nature of marriage. Marriage is what it is and always has been, no matter what a Legislature decides to do; however, the public understanding of marriage will be negatively affected by passage of a bill that ignores the natural fact that sexual complementarity is at the core of marriage." - Cardinal Francis George, the Archbishop of Chicago, on civil unions for Illinois. Cardinal George has been named by some as the potential successor to Emperor Palpatine.
