The Illinois Family Institute, a non profit group that bills itself as fostering an environment where families can flourish, has started a petition drive in Illinois to define marriage as a union only between a man and woman. Opponents to the petition call the effort narrow minded and based on bigotry. To get the same sex marriage issue placed on next November's ballot, supporters need to collect about 280,000 signatures by April 20th. Source: KSDK TV, KSDK NewsChannel5.com.
