Springfield’s Catholic bishop says Illinois politicians must work for the repeal of same-sex marriage. But the four Republicans running for governor say that would not be on their agenda if they’re elected.
The Chicago Sun-Times asked each of the four GOP contenders if they would push for repeal of the law that Governor Pat Quinn is expected to sign into law next week.
Kirk Dillard says he thinks the law might be overturned by the courts as unconstitutional, but says he would not push for repeal. The other Republicans… Bill Brady, Dan Rutherford, and Bruce Rauner… say their focus would be on fixing the state’s economy, not on trying to repeal the newly-passed same-sex marriage law.
