So, do those thousands of gay couples in civil unions need to get married to be considered married, or can they just mail in a form for the upgrade?

Yet another reason I would gladly move to Chicago. It wouldn't affect me personally (happily married already) but I like states willing to support my friends' pursuit of happiness.

I think they will be able to download the Marriage DLC on Steam.

BTW the city itself has provided partner benefits for years now, thanks to Mayor Daley basically declaring it's what the city would do one day pretty much out of the blue. Also within the city gender identity is a protected class, so equal opportunity measures cover that when it comes to employment, housing etc in the city. Annd Illinois was the first state to repeal all laws that made being gay illegal way back in 1963.

Can't wait for the wingnuts to decry the vote and warn of the invisible sky wizard's wrath to come.

Amazingly that was the year my gay brother in law was born.

When I first moved to Atlanta I tried to find a bar to watch the Bears.  Typing "bears bar atlanta" does not give you any football related results.

You fool!  Why would anyone live in Chicago with bullets and homosexuals whizzing all over the place I'll never know.  I'd rather stay out here with the Real Ilinoisians in Danville.

There is a lot of shiat wrong with this City, but I'm still damn proud to live here because of things like this.

Oh great, now we're getting more gun control.  That's how Illinois works.  They can't give one group more rights without taking rights away from someone else.
 
2013-02-14 10:09:36 AM
As often as my state embarrasses me (looking at you Ryan and Blago, and, well, most of the rest of our politicians) every once in a while they do manage to do the right thing.

Like black Klansmen and male sorority sisters, "gay marriage" simply doesn't exist. Oh, we have monogamous homosexual couples playing house, and certain states issuing marriage licenses to them, but there's no marriage there. This is because marriage is not a civil union; it's an ordained one.

I continue to find this amusing, despite the clear and present danger it represents to our culture. Here we have the opponents of this farcical instrument of societal destruction actually engaging in the debate over whether or not to "allow" something that simply doesn't exist.

In the case of the Boy Scouts of America, they have simply bought into - or very nearly bought into - the aforementioned pro-homosexual propaganda. Here, we have the fact that homosexuals do not account for the percentages that activists tout; in reality, 1 to 3 percent of the overall population is probably fairly accurate. The entertainment media and the press would have us believe that it is closer to 10 percent, and if you watch television, you're likely to surmise that every third person you set eyes on is homosexual.

There's much more, of course: The widespread myth that homosexuality is normal rather than aberrant, that it is hard-wired into individuals rather than being a persuasion or choice, that it is not harmful to society, and that it is not harmful to children. One particularly dangerous fallacy advanced by homosexual activists is that pedophiles (such as those who have been charged with molesting Boy Scouts over the years) are not homosexuals.

These submissions against better judgment are analogous to capitulating to a developmentally disabled child who wants to play with matches simply because they have been persistent in their requests to do so. Obviously, the child does not know better; as the developmentally sound individual present, it is that person's responsibility to refuse his or her requests, not defer to them.

I'd compliment the copypasta, but the content is still nothing more than bigotry and lies.

Looks like concealed carry is a done deal as well. It would have been nice to put both of these things in one bill and call it the Illinois Individual Freedom and Security act.

If the state liberalizes the marriage laws, they'll have to loosen the gun laws so that married gays can acquire guns more easily to defend themselves from the hetero thugs.

Anyone know how likely it is to pass in the lower chamber?  I know the Gov. said he'd sign it, but I didn't see anything about the other side of the legislature.
