Interesting Quote: Illinois Rep. Jeanne Ives

"They're trying to redefine marriage. It's a completely disordered relationship and when you have a disordered relationship, you don’t ever get order out of that. So I’m more than happy to take a 'no' vote on the issue of homosexual marriage."
"I'm more than happy to stand up and take a courageous vote here on this issue because it's the right thing to do. Essentially what they’re trying to do is not just redefine marriage, they’re trying to redefine society. They’re trying to weasel their way into acceptability so that they can then start to push their agenda down into the schools, because this gives them some sort of legitimacy. And we can’t allow that to happen. The rights to marriage, it's really a natural right. It’s the natural right of the child to be with both parents, either in an adoptive nature or in a biological nature. To not have a mother and a father is really a disordered state for a child to grow up in and it really makes that child an object of desire rather than the result of a matrimony."

Spouting the same old rhetoric with nothing to back up her claims.

This line of thinking now seems as old as she looks. Those opposing same sex marriage need to go back and re-think their messaging because more and more Americans recognize this as homophobic speech and discriminatory.

Can we redefine her marriage as a woman and the man who gave up on life but wanted a slightly more humane exit strategy than suicide?
