Though civil unions are already law, the Illinois Senate president has urged that the bill legalizing homosexual marriage be brought out of Committee and brought to a vote on Valentines Day! The symbolism is obvious! He claims that there are sufficient votes to pass it.

I have read about many problems happening in Massachusetts as a result of their law. Space doesn't allow recounting all of them, but they involved promoting homosexuality in the public schools, eliminating STD tests to obtain a marriage license, persecution in the workplace of any who do not agree with the practice, a married lesbian activist being appointed to their Supreme Court, the state-funded Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange pushing homosexual family formation, churches being harassed, and on and on.

God is the creator, ruler, and judge of the world, and eventually all individuals. The Bible is His word, to reveal Himself to us. He calls it sin. How then can any Christian say it is OK? All real believers should be active in protesting the redefinition of marriage, when God ordained it as between a man and a woman! We must quickly contact:

-- State Sen. Mike Jacobs in Springfield (217) 782-5957 or in Moline (309) 797-0001
-- State Rep. Mike Smiddy in Springfield (217) 782-3992 or Port Byron (309) 848-9098
-- State Rep. Pat Verschoore in Springfield (217) 782-5970 or Rock Island (309) 558-3612

The time to speak out is almost past.
