Illinois Unites for Marriage
Marriage is about love, commitment and family. The Illinois legislature is considering a bill that would guarantee that all civil marriages, regardless of whether they are between opposite-sex or same-sex couples, will come with the same protections, rights and responsibilities for the married couples and their children. The Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act respects the guarantees of the First Amendment, allowing free exercise of religion, while also enabling same-sex parties to a marriage and their children to be treated equally. We urge the legislature to pass the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act and enable Illinois to become the tenth state to recognize the freedom to marry.
