Illinois' chief 'family' group posts meme calling homosexuality 'dishonorable,' 'shameless'
With only four days left in the legislative session, the Illinois Family Institute is ratcheting up the denigration:
Not a huge surprise, since the Illinois Family Institute is one of most nakedly animus-driven state policy group on the map. But it's insightful, nonetheless.
We're trying to have a conversation about civil rights and whether or not they should be granted to certain kinds of taxpayers, irrespective of varying religious opinion. Meanwhile our opposition only wants to condemn us, conflating their personal theological opinions with sound public policy. We are having an on-point conversation about marriage licensing, but they are much more interested in pelting us with brimstone. This is not a discourse or a dialogue about the actual issues on the table—it's a conversation where we are doing our diligence in terms of constitutional law while our opposition is working to cast us out of decent society altogether.
The Illinois legislature has a very short window to do a very decent thing. Don't blow it, lawmakers.
