"The division brought about by the Devil due to same-sex marriage may be seen in the way our society, our families and our friendships have become so divided and polarized over this issue.

"The diversion of the Devil in same-sex marriage may be seen in the fact that so much of our time, energy and resources are being spent in addressing this issue, when there are more pressing needs facing our state and our Church.

"The work of discouragement by the Devil in same-sex marriage is apparent in the message being conveyed to defenders of traditional marriage that the universal redefinition of marriage is unstoppable, so we might as well just stop trying."

-- Springfield, Illinois Catholic bishop Thomas Paprocki, explaining why Satan is behind marriage equality. Paprocki made the remarks in the homily he delivered at his same-sex marriage exorcism service yesterday. He also advised gay and lesbian Catholics to turn to the so-called "Courage Apostolate" to help them lead totally celibate lives.
