Marriage equality: Nothing to fear in Illinois
Note from GLAAD
Marriage equality in Illinois has the support of over 260 faith leaders, as well as the chair of the state GOP. Charles Martel writes this commentary.
Right now, the legislature in Illinois is at an important juncture with the possibility of upcoming vote on marriage equality. Many of the same stories of fears have been told, and repeated over and over again. But Illinois lawmakers and citizens are in a very different position than were the citizens and lawmakers of Massachusetts eight years ago, for our Massachusetts story, and the stories of all the states with marriage equality, offer you the experience and knowledge that these fears are unfounded.
