Illinois state Representative Sara Feigenholtz(D), of the 12th district, in a recent interview with the St.Charles Patch compared supporters of traditional marriage to Nazis.

The representative for the 12th Illinois House District now has her sights set on helping the LGBT community secure the right to marry. She has been a staunch advocate on this issue.

“For me, the most precious thing I do as a lawmaker is giving people rights. We have a powerful opportunity as elected officials to do this.”

Feigenholtz knows how hatred can grow and destroy people.

“Many years ago, I had an aunt who was packed in a synagogue with a lot of relatives. Doors were locked and the synagogue was ignited. I had family that was incinerated by hatred.”

Rep. Feigenholtz is proud to stand up for equal marriage rights.

“It’s been an honor to work with a community that is spirited and vibrant and committed to social justice as the LGBT community,” she said. “There is amazing progress being made on marriage equality.”

She looks forward to her vote on the issue.

The First of all I want to point out that marriage isn’t a right.

Second, supporting and defending marriage as being between one man and one woman isn’t hatred, bigoted, homophobic, or anything else along those lines.
