Nevertheless, Obama discovered the fastest way to reduce the American family to singles leading to the destruction of the American futile society of doggy culture.
Cry some more; it's not going to stop our march to equality.

Sounds like your Gov is considering a run for the White House in '16 if Hillary doesn't run, so you may be able to get rid of him that way!

If that's what the voters of Illinois want, then that's their choice.

Funny how they didn't elect a bunch of GOPasaurs though the last time around considering everyone knew the marriage bill was going to come up. Instead they gave the Dems the supermajorities they needed to pass marriage equality.

Hmmmmm, must be that "liberal corruption" again......

How can a person be illegal? What law bans people from being?

They are people who've committed a crime. Call them criminals, or people who entered the country illegally, but they can't be illegal people.

Gay "marriage?" That should really help the unemployment situation and lower the crime rate in Chicago. Good to see the democrat swine that run ILL. have their priorities straight.
they can not be Christians:

Homosexuality is clearly condemned in the Bible. But, it also goes against the created order of God who made Adam, a man, and Eve, a woman -- not two men, not two women -- to carry out his command to fill and subdue the earth (Gen. 1:28). Homosexuality cannot carry out that command. It is, therefore, a contradiction to God's stated desire in the created order.

Unlike other sins, homosexuality has a heavy judgment administered by God Himself upon those who commit it - and support it. This judgment is simple in that those who practice it are given over to their passions - which means that their hearts are allowed to be hardened by their sins.

LOL - I doubt Illinois Gov could run for US President. Gov Quinn is a 'milk toast'. He first got the job when he was Lt. Gov. and Gov. Blagoyavich got his butt tossed into prison. Then he got elected (how, I'll never know)(other than IL is a BIG BLUE State).

So one Governor is IN PRISON and one other one just got out a few weeks ago.

Yep, that's Illinois - Obama's home town state <LOL>

That's funny.

In my bible, Jesus is SILENT about homosexuality.

Seems it was Jehovah who told Moses to tell the Hebrews to stop doing that sort of thing.

Jesus didn't say anything about it.

Are you a Hebrew??
