    I am in the state over (IL) from you and we just passed a gay marriage bill. Way later than you, but we did it.

      In my small rural town in IL we have 14 churches in a town of 5,500 people. We voted for McCain and Mitt over Obama in the last two elections.

      The Methodist church I went to as a kid (I am an atheist now) a few years started to update their sign out front that included a few messages that were like "dog whistles" for a liberal like myself.

      Kind of "code" words that said gay folks were very welcome. Again not sure a conservative would notice it, but I did.

      It made me very happy!
