Protestant Advocacy Group Endorses Civil Unions

Protestants for the Common Good, an Illinois advocacy organization, has endorsed House Bill 2234, the Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act. The bill, which is expected to be brought up for a vote in the state legislature today, would grant recognition and rights similar to those or marriage. The bill would not require churches or other religious bodies to perform ceremonies for same-sex couples or recognize the relationships of same-sex couples.

Faith leaders from across the state have endorsed the bill. See a full list here.

Call your state representative and senator TODAY (preferably this morning!) to express your support for the bill or send them an e-mail using this easy form.
