IL anti-equality crowd hopes to shame Rep. Ron Sandack (R-Downer's Grove) into voting for discrimination

by Jeremy Hooper

Republican lawmaker Ron Sandack has changed his mind on history and its right side, now supporting basic civil equality for his constituents who happen to be (or will eventually be) in same-sex relationships. In retaliation, the exceedingly anti-gay Illinois Family Institute will spend this upcoming Saturday morning standing outside the legislator's office in protest:

I think Rep. Sandack should stand up and speak out. Look this, an organization that aggressively supports the idea that gays can and should "change," squarely in the organizational eye and tell them that they are wrong. When you are doing the right thing, there is no reason to hide. Courage of our convictions and all that jazz.

Personally, I dream of such an opportunity. I'd invite as many cameras as possible so I could remind as large a swath of the Illinois public as possible of the kinds of things that IFI staffers David Smith and Laurie Higgins, as well as IFI ally Linda Jernigan, say about us on a daily basis.
