Pastors protesting Senate Bill 10 wore buttons displaying their belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman.  The pastors oppose gay marriage because they say it goes against the teachings of the Bible.

A coalition of 60 Chicago pastors gathered in the South Loop to protest Senate Bill Number 10 which would redefine marriage. The pastors are vocally opposed to gay marriage and said that this protest was one of many ways of speaking out against the redefinition of marriage. The pastors will continue to spread their message by speaking out on the radio, going door-to-door in Chicago with flyers and advertising on billboards around the city.
