Civil Union for Gays passes in my state! Illinois - December 1st 2010, 07:00 PM

http://www.suntimes.com/news/2934264...113010.article


Civil Unions, as some of you may know give gays & lesbians some of the similar rights heterosexual couples have for example, couples being allowed visitation rights if one is in the hospital etc. and I could not be happier=) It's a good step in the right direction imo. Any thoughts?

Honestly, its great news. People should be able to live freely no matter what there sexuality is. I hope this comes over to Canada.

I'm straight however I believe strongly in free will, people should be able to express themselves. Gay marriage should be allowed as well.

This is good news thanks!

Oh Happy Day! This is so great for two reasons: it's a great step in the direction of gay marriage, and two I have religious relatives that live in Illinois and I can't wait to talk to them about this *insert evil grin here*

Canada has gay marriage, which is much better than a civil union...

But, this is great! A step forward.

Actually it's another perfect example of the American populace finally starting to realize (all over again) that discrimination against people for something they cannot change is always wrong. That or finally a realization by the government that any law banning gay marriage is unconstitutional according the Loving v Virginia. It really blows my mind that our federal government seems to completely ignore that case.

^^^^

Another example of dogmatic religious values corrupting the minds of impressionable teenagers.

Always nice to hear that America's managed another step toward the twentieth century.


The atoms that make up you and me were born in the hearts of suns many times greater than ours, and in time our atoms will once again reside amongst the stars. Life is but an idle dalliance of the cosmos, frail, and soon forgotten. We have been set adrift in an ocean whose tides we are only beginning to comprehend and with that maturity has come the realization that we are, at least for now, alone. In that loneliness, it falls to us to shine as brightly as the stars from which we came.
