This may possibly be the best 2:46 of your life spent watching a video online today. Yesterday the Illinois State Senate passed the Illinois Religious Freedom Protection and Civil Union Act (SB 1716) granting civil unions to gay and lesbian couples across the state in a 32 to 24 vote. Rod 2.0 has been following the bill extensively and provides great coverage.

But it's what happened before the final vote during the debate that I think everyone should see. Senator Ricky Hendon explains his yes vote and calls out all of the hypocrites of the senate who planned to vote no citing religious beliefs and their "duty to uphold the sanctity of marriage" (whatever that means), and he did it in a very honest and "colorful" way.

Get into it below:

Thank you so much for sharing this! I thoroughly enjoyed it! I was so proud of my homestate and especially proud of my fellow Chi-Towner for holding it DOWN!
