Patriots United Plan Saturday Noon Demonstration at Jack Franks Office

The following press email has just been received explaining a demonstration will be held at State Rep. Jack Franks office on Route 47 just north of Business Route 14.

The last time a demonstration was held

in front of Franks’ office is was because he and Mark Beaubien had singed on to the bill to put the U.S. Supreme Court’s legalization of abortion into Illinois law.

Demonstrators were on both sides of Route 47 in front of Jack Franks' office on a blustery day.

The bill, House Bill 2354, was killed.

Both Franks and Beaubien withdrew their co-sponsorship from the bill after the day of picketing.

On the civil unions bill, however, Beaubien is unlikely to draw back his support because he has taken such a leadership position.  I heard him on radio promoting the bill.

The email follows:

Dear Fellow Patriot:

Illinois’ SB1716 (the “Civil Union” bill) is rearing its ugly head once again. Click here for the current bill as read (.PDF).

It has undergone its mandatory 3 readings and simply needs to be voted upon.

Postponed since May, 2009; this bill was initially designed for the express purpose of what to do when a person dies, estate, heirs, etc.

In the dead of night back in 2009, the Illinois legislature stripped everything out of the bill and replaced it with the, “Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act.”

While the bill states that it will respect the beliefs of religious organizations, there have been plenty of examples that once a homosexual couple is turned-away from a caterer, photographer, or even a Knights of Columbus hall, they will turn to the courts and the courts have gleefully ruled in favor of the couple.

To make matters worse, we have seen several state Supreme Courts rule that “Civil Unions” are akin to the unconstitutional “separate but equal” doctrine and have forced homosexual “Marriage” on their people.

The fall session begins next Tuesday, November 16 and State Representative Jack Franks has gone on record stating that, while he is against homosexual “Marriage,” he would support “Civil Unions.”

Please contact Jack Franks at Phone: (815) 334-0063, E-mail: jackfranks@franks4illinois.com There will be a rally against this legislation on Saturday, November 13th @ noon at his Woodstock office located at:

1193 S. Eastwood Drive Woodstock! Please bring a sign and join in.

Senator Pam Althoff: (815) 455-6330, E-mail: pamela@pamelaalthoff.net

Senator Dan Duffy: (847) 277-7100 Dan@SenatorDuffy.com

Representative Mark Beaubien (847) 487-5252 strepmbeaubien@sbcglobal.net

Please forward this information to other people who will take action.

Given the short staffing at the Northwest Herald, it seems unlikely that a story with a photograph will appear on Sunday.

  1. “…it seems unlikely that a story with a photograph will appear…”
    That’s why we will be counting on you to post some 🙂

    “…State Rep. Jack Franks office on Route 14 just north of Business Route 14…”
    Good thing you are not the one giving directions 🙂

    Just reading about the Gay Pride and Straight Pride school T-shirt issue makes me want to comment but what I would say would probably get me arrested. You and I grew up in a totally different era than today’s kids who are having this crap forced upon them by lawmakers who support this kind of sickness.

  2. Back off and let those men who want to marry men, marry men.
    Allow those women who want to marry women, marry women.
    Allow folks who want to abort their babies, abort their babies.
    In three generations, there will be no Democrats !!!
    Damn, I love it when a plan comes together.

  3. I’m all in favor of giving them their very own “country” (maybe a remote island with no access or HIV drugs) and letting Chaz Bono be their President

  4. Its funny how you feel the constitution is only for you. And that no one else has rights.

    You Must be a hypocrit.

    Good for you not for others.

    Yeah, lets take away the constitution and you can go to jail for talking about the government.

    All the criminals can walk in your house and take what they want because there won’t be any police to stop them because they are having coffee at the restraunt and don’t care about your stuff.

    Because thats what goes on in Communist countries and they tell you what kind of job you have to do or you live in delapidated housing.

    And have to beg or become a prostitute to make money.

  5. I’d think the family pillar of Patriots United would do a little bit more to encourage pre-marriage counseling, proper financial planning, and long-term relationship help considering the divorce rates in the communities.

    I doubt the failure of the American family is because one guy wants to let his partner dispose of property after his death; it’s more likely due to the fact that we manipulate our partners and care nothing about how any relationship is a choice between two consenting parties recognizing the value to their own lives the other person brings.

    These people care nothing about marriage, they simply care about their mystical control mechanisms the destroys the essence of humanity and individuality.

  6. NO Jeff not my house.. They are going to be met with a well armed resistance because MY constitution says I may have a gun. See it is your ilk that wants to turn this country in to a socialist mecca where it is do as you want. No morals not rules. The liberal way.

  7. I have made the correction Catman notes is needed.

    Thanks, reader-editor.

  8. This is a very confusing bill. It was initially written to describe the procedures to be used after a person dies, specifically if they have been involved in a lawsuit. In the middle of the night on May 26, 2009 the House deleted everything in the bill and replaced it with the Civil Unions bill. You can find this listed under House Amendment #1 here – http://ilga.gov/legislation/fulltext.asp?DocName=09600SB1716ham001&GA=96&SessionId=76&DocTypeId=SB&LegID=44423&DocNum=1716&GAID=10&Session=
    This is where the trickery and shenanigans of the Democrat party become apparent.

    George you are EXACTLY correct. If the tiny URL works it will take you to the Illinois Web Page BILL STATUS. It shows how it was introduced as ONE BILL and then when senators have agreed to the bill by the BILL NUMBER, the switch occurs. This is the shady, low life; shenanigans that the people in the state house do. Start it one way and then change it to slip something through. They know it won’t pass in the light of day, so they try a midnight witch.

    I have seen a popular bill get an ADD ON provision that has absolutely nothing with the context of the original bill. They are hoping the people voting don’t read it.

  10. Or hoping that the people who are voting want the original bill enough to roll over and agree to the add-on.

    Do you know how many bills are introduced in each session of the Illinois state legislature? The number is insane! No wonder little gets done, and Illinois sinks further and further into the muck.

  11. This is how our legislators work. This bill ORIGINALLY started out as a bill regarding deceased people and pending litigation against them. NOW IT IS A BILL GRANTING GAY RIGHTS AND CIVIL UNIONS

    Back room politics, nothing less.

    When many Senators and Representatives read it under the original bill number and think it is OK to vote for it, the sneaky liberal bastards change it to something that does not in anyway resemble the original bill in any fashion. The original bill number is the same so many think they are voting for the ORIGINAL BILL because they go by BIll NUmber and are too lazy to double check.

    It is also done so the PEOPLE don’t know it’s occurring and can’t rally against it.

    Original Bill
    735 ILCS 5/13-209
    from Ch. 110, par. 13-209

    Synopsis As Introduced ( ORIGINAL TEXT)
    Amends the Code of Civil Procedure. Provides that when a person dies before an action is filed against him or her, a court may appoint a special representative for that decedent, against whom an action may be brought without opening an estate. Deletes a provision requiring notice to heirs or legatees as the court directs, and provides instead that the plaintiff must notify all known heirs or legatees of the decedent by U.S. mail. Provides that any interested person may be substituted as the special representative for good cause shown. Provides that proceeding under this provision shall not bar the estate from filing counterclaims. Deletes a provision limiting recovery to proceeds of any liability insurance available to the estate. Provides that these changes apply to actions commenced or pending on or after the effective date of this amendatory Act. Effective immediately.

    SEE ANYTHING ABOUT GAY RIGHTS OR CIVIL UNIONS IN THIS TEXT?????

    THEN MONTHS LATER THEY ADMEND IT……………

    AMENDMENT TO SENATE BILL 1716

    AMENDMENT NO. ______. Amend Senate Bill 1716 by replacing

    Section 5. Purposes; rules of construction. This Act shall
    be liberally construed and applied to promote its underlying
    purposes, which are to provide adequate procedures for the
    certification and registration of a civil union and provide
    persons entering into a civil union with the obligations,
    responsibilities, protections, and benefits afforded or

    Now the dirty bastards do the switch, Done in both the House and the Senate.

    Routinely a popular bill gets an ADD ON provision that has absolutely nothing with the context of the original bill. Sneaking a unpopular provision through with a good one.

    This backroom BS is hoping the people voting don’t read it. The public is hoodwinked. This is taking dirty politics to a new level.

  12. You can talk what ever you want but God says all creatures are created equal and that means all his people not just you. So you are going to show up with guns now. Thats real civil. Gods law states that everyone is equal in his eyes but you don’t believe in him I guess.

  13. I don’t hide behind made up names because I haven’t anything to be ashamed of.

    God is my Lord and Savior and everyone will be judged.

    He speaks of acceptance of our fellow man, tolerance and understanding.

    I join the Army right out of High school in 1984 to protect everyones rights.

    By the way I’m a Moderate not a Liberal.

    I took an oath to protect our home from enemies Foriegn and Domestic.

    I didn’t untake the oath when a was discharged.
