Still, time the "antis" tell you it's about Marriage, the word, remember this.
Opponents of the Illinois civil unions law that takes effect this week want a referendum that allows people to vote on the measure.It's not a surprise that the opposition is ratcheting up its rhetoric to be generally anti-gay. It's not about marriage. It's about US, simply being who we are.
The Chicago Tribune reports on demonstrations held in downtown Chicago on Friday between supporters and opponents of the new law, which would give same-sex couples in civil unions the same rights as married couples in the state.
Meanwhile, Congratulations! Some equality is better than none. But we will not rest till full equality is obtained. Those civil unions should be marriages. And Lakeesha and Janean should have all the 1400+ rights of a married couple.
