Bishop Paprocki issues decree "Regarding Same Sex Marriage and Related Pastoral Issues"

New Ways Ministry, an ecclesiastical lobbying group for changing the Church's teaching on human sexuality, obtained a copy of a newly released guidelines for the Diocese of Springfield IL. I'm not familiar if Fr. James Martin, SJ has a formal role with this lobbying group, but that is who I first saw post it.  He jumped to some erroneous conclusions as has been his habit as of late.  I would be surprised if most dioceses did not have a policy in place regarding these issues and probably varies to some degree on how to handle sensitive pastoral questions.  Here is the leaked policy.
