The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Springfield says the nation's high court has given "legal protection to an intrinsic evil" by striking down the Defense of Marriage Act and not defending California's Proposition 8.  

In a statement Wednesday, Reverend Thomas John Paprocki went on to call the Supreme Court's rulings "hollow decisions" that are "devoid of moral authority".  

Paprocki, who earlier this month debated an Arizona nun supportive of same-sex marriage, tells parishioners to "reject the redefinition of marriage and bear witness to the truth of Holy Matrimony... between one man and one woman."
