Illinois, USA: Democratic PAC Leader Goes After Attorney General Madigan for Marriage Equality Support

Written by scott on May 1st, 2013

IllinoisIt’s true – we are our own worst enemy. Rikki Jones, president of a political action committee called Cook County Democratic Women, took offense at state Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s support of marriage equality. DNA Info reports:

Yet Rikki Jones, president of a political action committee called Cook County Democratic Women, is disseminating “an open letter to Lisa Madigan” calling it “very disrespectful to say the least” to “equate” marriage equality with civil rights. “As a Christian who believes in the Bible, I feel what you are doing is taking my rights as a Christian and sacrificing them for the gay and lesbian community. How could you?” the letter said. It continues with references to Biblical condemnations of homosexuality.
The letter goes on to say allowing marriage equality violates the Constitution because “you have no business insinuating yourself in the church’s business.” It concluded: “You have gotten out of your lane and got in God’s lane! Have you lost your mind? Yours arms are too short to box with God!”

Lovely. I’m so sick of this “my civil rights are better than your civil rights” idiocy. Can’t we just agree that everyone’s civil rights are important, even if one size doesn’t fit all?

    Rikki Jones feels her rights are being taken away? Which rights are those?

    Hasn’t Ms. Jones heard of freedom of speech? Ms. Jones is entitled to her Christian beliefs, but those beliefs should not impact on constitutional rights of our citizens.
