Why do I suspect there will be no voter referendum on this? Apparently Illinois Legislators don't trust the people who elected THEM to do the "right" thing.....

You are a bigoted retard. You never say you want people referendum, which is NOT required in Illinois state law, on ANY other legislation. What would I expect from KKK racist homophobic RepubliKKKan

As a former 47 year resident of the state of Illinois, I can honestly say I'm glad to be from the cess pool of Illinois.

Gay marriage issue aside.... it has no effect on me at all, but a sanctuary state, giving driver's licenses to illegals (who is going to enforce the insurance requirements?), murder capital of the United States, some of the highest tax rates in the country and billions in debt.

What Obama is trying to do to the country is merely a reflection of what the Democrats have done to Illinois.

I'm a current 20 year old resident of the state of Pennsylvania, I can honestly say I'm glad that people like you are a dying breed in AmeriKKKa. Do yourself a favor and remove yourself from the gene pool.

Your reading comprehension is as bad as Tyler's.

Where's the equality in giving away the country to illegals when there are thousands standing in line to come here legally?

Take your open border attitude someplace else.... like Mexico, Greece, Italy, Turkey or Iran. You'll find out real quick whether or not people can be 'illegal.'

Really??
So barbaric...sure. Cross into the country illegally, work under the table and don't pay taxes, that way you can double dip and collect entitlements at the same time.
Get a free education for your children, and the schools will give them breakfast and lunch, too. That way you can use your tax free income on more important things, like a big flat screen or to pay for that shiny, late model truck sitting in the driveway.
Got insurance on that truck? Nope. Following the law is what citizens do, and when they don't, they're held accountable. Non citizens aren't.
Go to the local ER every time one of your children sniffles or has a belly ache. Give whatever name and address you like, because the hospital's not allowed to ask for ID (at least not here in Ct.) So, even if you have money to pay, you won't have to.
I live in a city that once held "the most illegal aliens per capita" title, and many of them, though not all, live damned good lives, in part because many of them know every angle to scam the system.
As barbaric as slavery?? Are you for real?

If the voters in Illinois didn't want marriage equality passed, then they should have voted for the Republicans.

You really don't understand how our representative govt works.
