Illinois, Legalize Gay Marriage!
State Representative Greg Harris doesn’t think legislation he pushed that would legalize gay marriage in Illinois will pass this year because the “votes aren’t there”.
Currently, the state has a civil unions law, but marriage equality is what the law should be. While the war for equality wages on, anti-gay individuals in Illinois are trying to stop same-sex marriage from becoming a reality.
Everyone has the right to love and marry, and all people should be treated equally under the law. Passing this law now would also help with Illinois’ troubled economy according to a recent report.
Please tell Illinois to legalize gay marriage!

If Amendment One passes, my advice to same sex couples married in other states, particularly where children are involved, would be never to bring those children to North Carolina. North Carolina has lovely mountains and beaches, but so does Maryland and so do many others states which don’t enshrine discrimination in their Constitutions.

Truth. Do not underestimate the impact of legislation like Amendment One.

It’s not a choice to be made at a distance by elected officials with an ideological axe to grind, little medical knowledge and a belief that it’s acceptable to require doctors to put unnecessary instruments inside women’s bodies in an effort to achieve in practice what they can’t constitutionally pass into law: an end to abortion.
Wow, Ron Leech is a bigot and an asshole.
In case you were looking for a good example of white privilege, here it is: assuming that, because you’re a white man, your voice is “neutral” in any given situation. Male and white is default, so the experience of a white man speaks to all people, whereas the experiences of non-whites or non-men is a special interest group. -Jess
