"Allowing same-sex couples to wed under the law would not devalue traditional marriage. It would affirm the bedrock values that underlie and sustain such unions.

"Marriage promotes stable families, safeguards the interests of children and rewards committed relationships.

"Recognizing same-sex marriages demonstrates respect for personal freedoms and keeps government out of the intimate affairs of citizens. More people in same-sex relationships are adopting or giving birth to children; this provides the security of a legal commitment for those children. It's the fair thing to do."

-- Excerpt form a Chicago Tribune editorial urging the passage of marriage equality in Illinois.
