|Sen. Heather Steans, the bill's sponsor hugs Rep. Greg Harris|
Yesterday afternoon, the Illinois Senate committee passed the Marriage Equality bill with the vote 8 to 5.
Now, the bill can now move to the full Senate. If any of you saw some of the live-streaming; you heard some foolishness from some preacher guy, spitting out the same old religion mess that doesn't hold a lick of worth. I thought it was sad, funny, but sad.
However, once the vote was completed, folks cheered loudly, making it known that marriage equality was getting closer to reality. This was a good day in Illinois.
