Log Cabin Republicans have produced a "Getting it Right" ad congratulating IL GOP Chairman Pat Brady for his affirmation and lobbying efforts in favor of legalizing same sex marriage in Illinois. Their interim Executive Director Gregory T. Angelo commented:
"Chairman Brady is showing great courage by advocating for something he believes in. Dramatic calls for his resignation by social conservatives amount to little more than histrionics from extremists who know that civil marriage for committed gay and lesbian couples in the 'Land of Lincoln' is inevitable.
"We applaud Chairman Brady for standing firm on the right side of history and encourage other Republicans to join him. Only when our party understands that inclusion wins over division, will Republicans once again be the kind of 'big tent' party that focuses on the issues that unite rather than divide us, like jobs, taxes, and limited government."
