Legal Scholar Linton on the "Collusive Lawsuit" to Redefine Marriage in Illinois

 

Paul Linton, special counsel for the Thomas More Society in Chicago, writes at Public Discourse:

"...The fact that advocates of same-sex marriage uniformly oppose public votes on state constitutional amendments that would define marriage as a union of a man and a woman is telling evidence that they do not believe what they say. If advocates of same-sex marriage believe that the people of Illinois are now prepared to accept same-sex marriage, let’s have the General Assembly put the issue on the November ballot and we’ll see who wins. Same-sex marriage should not come in the back door, via an arguably collusive lawsuit in which no one charged with the responsibility of enforcing the law actually defends it."
