David Peters, right, and Luke Whited, a gay couple who were joined in a civil union in their home state of Illinois, show their rings inside the Bourbon Pub, a gay bar, after being interviewed about President Obama's statement of support of gay marriage, in New Orleans, Wednesday, May 9, 2012. Ending months of equivocation, Obama declared his support for gay marriage, the first U.S. president to do so. His announcement, a day after North Carolina conservatives turned out in force to vote to strengthen the state's gay marriage ban, injects a potentially polarizing issue into the 2012 race for the White House.

Story by Kate Sosin, courtesy Windy City Times:

Multiple reports suggesting that the Illinois same-sex marriage bill is short 12 votes are calling into question estimates that the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act could face a vote this week.

Several newspapers are reporting that House Speaker Mike Madigan told reporters that SB10 was still lacking 12 votes and will not come up for a vote this week.

But information leading up to the vote might call those numbers into question.
