Story by 89 WLS reporter Bill Cameron
In Springfield on this Valentine's Day, the gay marriage bill was passed by the Illinois Senate.
Gay marriage passed the Senate with four votes to spare, but not with the support of Senator Dale Bivins of Dixon,"There are in fact moral absolutes. They're found in the bestselling book of all time, to which the governor himself referenced last week in his State of the State address, when he referred to principles as old as the Bible and quoted the prophet Jerimiah. From Old Testament to New, there is nothing that supports same sex marriage. Just the opposite is true."
The bill doesn't force churches to perform same-sex marriages and so the Senate sent the bill to the House where passage will be tougher.
