Illinois Lawmaker: Legalizing Gay Marriage Is ‘Discriminatory’

A Republican legislator in Illinois levied charges of discrimination against a measure to permit same-sex marriage that was approved Thursday by the state Senate.

Illinois state Sen. Kyle McCarter (R) took to his Facebook page to argue that the bill passed by the Democratic-controlled chamber was an injustice against “those who hold the sincerely held religious belief” that marriage should only be between a man and a woman.
