CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago Cardinal Francis George says a vote to legalize gay marriage in Illinois was “no enormous surprise,” but says the bill was “bad legislation.”

The head of the Archdiocese of Chicago tells the Chicago Sun-Times that “we’ve lived with bad laws before.”

Illinois set to be 15th state to allow gay marriage

He says thinks the measure will “change the nature of our society over a period of time.”

He spoke to the newspaper at Holy Name Cathedral.

Illinois lawmakers voted Tuesday to legalize same-sex marriage in Illinois. The governor has said he’ll sign the bill.

 

If that happens, Illinois will become the 15th state in the country to legalize same-sex marriage.
