Editorial Of The Day

From the editorial board of the Chicago Tribune:
Lawmakers, don't wait for the courts. The legislative branch, rather than the judicial, should be writing the fine points of this law. Make a firm declaration that same-sex marriage is in the best interest of the state and its residents because the law would strengthen families, protect the interests of children and affirm personal freedom. The Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act, which has passed the Illinois Senate, would allow same-sex marriage. It also would affirm that religious denominations are not required to solemnize or provide facilities for gay marriages. Last February, the Illinois Senate approved the bill on a 32-24 vote. The measure has been stalled in the House because sponsors haven't been confident they have the votes to pass it there. It's time for a vote. It's time to get lawmakers on record.
Bolding is mine.
