A same-sex marriage bill has passed an Illinois Senate committee, in an 8 – 5 vote. The bill seems to have strong bipartisan support.
The bill will still have to be voted on by the full Senate, but this is a huge first step.
Ironically, the bill was believed to have been delayed by the anti-gay marriage crowd, including NOM, who declared success in an email blast today, after begging for cash yesterday to create a “grassroots” groundswell of anti-gay marriage activity.
