a vote to legalize same-sex marriage in Illinois looking less likely to happen in the next few days, supporters of marriage equality are looking ahead to the following legislative session as their next best hope.
A Senate committee voted 8-5 late Thursday in favor of a bill that would allow gay marriage. But with key supporters absent, Senate Democrats delayed a full floor vote. The Senate then canceled its Friday schedule, and President John Cullerton said lawmakers are unlikely to return to Springfield before the session ends Jan. 9. New lawmakers will be sworn into office that day.
Sen. Heather Steans, the bills sponsor, said it was a matter of when, not if the measure will pass. She said people across Illinois and state lawmakers are changing their minds every day and supporting gay marriage.
This is never going to be an easy one, but its only going to get easier, Steans said.

So celebrating sodomy is soon going to be the law in Illinois?
I can never understand wy straight people can support the so-called marriage of these sick mentally ill perverts.
Liberalism and all it entails is their god. We, as Christians and Jews have a different and Holy God. We each worship our gods as we see fit.
My God is a mighty God and He will not be mocked forever, judgement is coming and woe to the worshipers of the false god of liberalism. My God tells me they will have their part in the lake of fire. I believe Him.
More proof my home state of Illinois is the worst state in the Union. Thanks to it being a blue state run by Democrats.
I believe any feeling American can feel sorry for these sick people.
But we have to stop feeling sorry for them and start thinking about what it is they do.
Playing in fecal matter and using objects for penetration is not sex.Messing with the minds of our youth and encouraging that youth in the perverted practices of Homosexuals is not good for youth.Pedophiles are nasty people they should not get within a mile of our children.
Allowing Homosexuals to adopt children in their formative years is insane.
Nothing to do with right or wrong or the definition of marriage, then, eh Ms Steans?
Another homely Dem forcing the world to accept ugliness of the soul.
Otherwise the rest of the state is very Midwestern and not Sovietized at all ~ people do not have Joe Stalin pictures in their living rooms, nor do they worship the mayor.
A special tsunami sweeping down and across Lake Michigan could redress the balance!
illinois, California, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Vermont are in a race to the bottom.
