Advisory Constitutional Referendum to Protect Marriage—2011 Style

I just received this Friday so the rally scheduled for Friday has already occurred. However, we need to get involved with the petition drive to protect marriage.

This was a part of my post on November 30, 2010 when the Illinois General Assembly during a lame duck session was considering a “civil unions” bill. The bill became law because it was a lame duck session and some members had nothing to lose since they had already lost in the November elections or did not run for reelection and thus voted to pass a “civil unions” bill to legitimatize immoral homosexual behavior.

“Equality Illinois, the state’s full-time pro-homosexual lobby and political group, lists the following organizations and unions as supporters (the usual suspects—my addition) of SB 1716:

01) Access Living
02) ACLU of Illinois
03) Anti-Defamation League
04) Advocacy Council for Human Rights, Bloomington
05) Chicago Bar Association
06) Chicago Coalition of Welcoming Churches
07) Citizen Action Illinois
08) Chicago Teachers Union
09) Heartland Alliance for Human Needs and Human Rights
10) Illinois Department of Human Rights (An Illinois Government agency! To them, it is a human right to engage in immoral behavior!—my addition)
11) Illinois Federation of Teachers
12) Illinois Network of Centers for Independent Living
13) Illinois Planned Parenthood Council
14) Illinois State Bar Association
15) National Association of Social Workers of Illinois
16) Northwest Suburban Now
17) People for the American Way
18) Protestants for the Common Good
19) Quad Cities for Diversity
20) Service Employees International Union
21) Unite Here, Local 1”


“Subject: New Illinois Marriage Ballot Initiative Launches Today; Rally Against ‘Civil Unions’ in Chicago!

Date: May 27, 2011 7:57 AM

Dear Readers, as you can read below, we in Illinois have a lot of work ahead of us, but defending Marriage against the radical attempt by pro-homosexuality forces to redefine it is definitely worth it! If you are in or near Chicago, come out to the rally this morning at 11:00 AM in the Loop at St. Peter's Church, 111 W. Madison Ave. And get ready to start gathering signatures so that in 2012 Illinois citizens can join those of 31 other states in making a strong STATEWIDE statement for preserving traditional Marriage. After all, Marriage cannot be recast—by liberal politicians, ‘gay’ activists or leftist judges—to be anything other than what God made it to be: a sacred union of a man and a woman. God bless you.—Peter LaBarbera, Americans For Truth,

“Illinois Defense of Marriage Initiative Is Launched Today

Rally against radical new IL ‘civil unions’ law today in Chicago

Today a coalition of Illinois pro-family and pro-life advocates launch the Illinois Defense of Marriage Initiative


at a rally in Chicago’s Loop this sponsored by my friend Dick Walsh and Americans For Life

[Rally begins at 11:00 AM at St. Peter's Church, 110 W. Madison Ave.; we will march to the Thompson Center] IDMI is a statewide effort to preserve the historic, traditional definition of marriage in the Land of Lincoln. IDMI needs to gather almost 300,000 signatures of registered Illinois voters by next April 2012—to put an Advisory Question on the 2012 ballot asking the Illinois General Assembly to pass a Constitutional Amendment stating:

“To secure and preserve the benefits of marriage for our society and for future generations of children, the union of one man and one woman in marriage shall be the only agreement recognized as a marriage or similar union for any purpose.”

To accomplish this goal—and have Illinois join the 31 other states whose citizens have stood up for real marriage at the ballot box—we aim to gather 600,000 signatures by next year. This could help us avoid an expensive legal challenge by homosexual activists and the ACLU—who will go to any extreme to deny Illinois voters an opportunity to have their voices heard on traditional marriage.
