Illinois Has a Lot More to Go

As of today homosexual couples will now have some of the rights as a heterosexual couple does, but it is no were near enough. It may be a step in the right direction, but nowhere near full equality. I think that Gay marriage should be legal in all 50 states. I don't think Civil Unions are the way to go, because civil unions first of all give the impression that Homosexuals aren't equal to heterosexual when it comes to marriage or even rights of married people. Many countries in the world have already legalized Gay Marriage and guess what the sky didn't fall down. Countries like Canada have had Gay marriage for years nothing significant and detrimental happened except maybe that Gay people in Canada feel more like equals and less afraid of being judged. Harper actually promised to make Gay marriage illegal. Now Illinois seems to be moving in the right direction, but the governor can't call civil unions as full equality. apparently some in the U.S appose to civil unions

Illinois Family Institute, a nonprofit group that says it wants to reaffirm marriage in the state, called the law "divisive."

"Gov. Quinn should reject this anti-family bill and reject the efforts of the homosexual lobby to impose this highly contentious and controversial policy on the people of Illinois," David E. Smith, executive director of the group, said earlier.


First how is giving some rights to people who should be given all marriage rights imposing on the people of Illinois. Second this bill would still  make gay marriage look inferior to heterosexual marriage

    What a load! All you libs want to do is tick off Christians/Muslims by using the word "marriage." Civil union is exactly the same thing and it keeps the religious folk happy. Stop rocking the boat on this contentious issue!

  2. If you're up for a lecture, the Cato Institute has a very nice one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NiNTlohUwU . To summarize it, they argue that the government should be out of the business of marriage, and that way the Christians can say it is between a man and a woman, other people can use the term civil union for both hetero- and homo-sexual unions, others can use a mix, and others can call both marriage. They argue that it is not the government's role to be in the marriage industry.
