The only apparent progress of equal rights in Illinois is a bill(HB1826) that would recognize same sex unions filed by Rep. Greg Harris earlier this year. Since then, this is the current timeline. 6/30/2007 House Final Action Deadline Extended-9(b) July 31, 2007 7/31/2007 House Final Action Deadline Extended-9(b) August 4, 2007 8/4/2007 House Final Action Deadline Extended-9(b) August 10, 2007 8/10/2007 House Final Action Deadline Extended-9(b) August 17, 2007 8/17/2007 House Final Action Deadline Extended-9(b) August 24, 2007 8/24/2007 House Final Action Deadline Extended-9(b) September 5, 2007 9/5/2007 House Final Action Deadline Extended-9(b) October 5, 2007 There's no point in public initiative, as this case is being handled by jerks. But I am curious as to what the SOMB stance is on it.

is there a legal distinction between marriage and civil union? why not have everything that goes through a courthouse be called a civil union? if people want to say that they're "married", it's up to them and their church

I'm against it because it makes a mockery of all the healthy heterosexual marriages.

Ban heterosexual marriage. Gays and heteros have equal rights, and the world is a better place.

Yeah, because if a civil union grants all the entitlements that a marriage would, who cares what it's called? I don't think we have civil unions in CA. We do have 'domestic partnerships' but those only pertain to gays of any age or heteros if one of the partners is >65. Which is discriminatory.

I don't think there should be a law for gay marriage, but simply no laws against gay marriage. Marriage in the non-civil union sense is a religious matter, as far as i understand it. This would include preventing individual states from passing anti-gay marriage laws, although this treads into weird constitutional territory...freedom of religion VS states rights.

it may not matter what it's called unless of course it is called marriage because then the feds would have to ante up some rights, not just the states.

edit: and now that i think about it, that's not even correct. (mass.) nh does call it marriage but the feds still don't recognize it because the marriage is between the same sex.
