Illinois Marriage Equality on “Fast Track”

On Top Magazine had an article quoting IL Representative Greg Harris, “We are on a fast track to passing marriage equality in the state of Illinois”

Illinois passed civil unions two years ago with a bill Harris sponsored..  As expected, the lesser designation does not grant equal rights to same sex couples.  Civil unions are “marriage lite”.  Court after court has ruled in civil rights cases that separate is not equal.

Harris feels the legislation is on the fast track because people in the state have, “ talked to their neighbors, they’ve talked to their clergy people; they’ve decided treating every couple equally in the eyes of the law is the right thing to do.”

Here’s hoping he’s right and that Illinois will be the 10th state to offer Marriage Equality!
