Catholic Bishop Timothy O’Donnell of Springfield is urging caution in the city’s upcoming casino referendum. While not saying which way parishioners should vote, O’Donnell says the lure of easy money might be blinding people to social problems an urban casino might bring. The special election on MGM International’s downtown casino proposal in Springfield will be held next Tuesday. A group of about 14 religious leaders held a rally in Springfield this week to speak out against the casino proposal.
