The Illinois legislature PASSED the Civil Unions Bill HB2234. It will now go to the House floor for a full vote.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to contact the committee members.

I'll keep you posted on the outcome of the floor vote.


Having spread their filth and lies in California, Arizona and Florida, the Mormon church has now rallied their forces to attack a small, Illinois legislative committee.

The Youth and Family Committee is right now, today (March 5th, 2009) debating Civil Unions bill HB2234. And the Mormon church, in a frenzy to prove the Mormon might, has mobilized their members to call State Representatives and Senators urging them to kill the bill in committee. Apparently they're worried that if HB2234 reaches the floor for a vote, it will pass.

Their tactic is to attack the bill at a point where they can concentrate their onslaught on the fewest decision makers possible thereby flooding them with phone calls, faxes and emails.

If you find this blatant church incursion to be as repulsive as most fair-minded people do, there is something you can do NOW that will only take a few minutes of your time.

Below is the same list of committee members and their phone numbers that the Mormon leadership has sent to their followers. Just give them a call and let them know, in the strongest but politest way possible, that you FAVOR the passage of HB2234 and fervently disapprove of the Mormon church's attempt to control your government.

Rep. Greg Harris (D-Chicago) (Sponsor of HB2234)

Rep. LaShawn K. Ford (D-Chicago)

Rep. Mike Fortner (R-West Chicago)
Republican Spokesperson

Rep. William D. Burns (D-Chicago)

Rep. Michael P. McAuliffe (R-Chicago)

Rep. Al Riley (D-Matteson)

Rep. Dave Winters (R-Rockford)

If you're a Illinois resident and want to know who your representative is, you can use or click on the following link to get their name and contact information: http://www.elections.il.gov/DistrictLocator/SelectSearchType.aspx?NavLink=1 Once there, just enter your 9
digit zip code (without the dash) and this will bring up your district's information.

Thanks to Queers United for the heads up on this.
