Hooray for the state of Illinois. Yes, indeed, the r.c. church was trying for force their dogma on everyone, including people who don't belong to their church or have no religion, and making religious law incumbent on everyone when civil law trumps church beliefs. Our country is not a theocracy, and the teachings of one religion should not be incorporated into secular society. The r.c. church has lost this battle, and I can see them continue to lose ground in trying to deny, deprive and demonize gays.
