So will the Catholics face the same type of backlash that the LDS Church members faced in CA after prop 8?

I think the Illinois situation shows why the LDS church rejects government funding out of hand and shows why this is a wise policy.

Please keep your comments focused on the Catholics and their efforts here and the possible backlash. Prop 8 discussions bore me to tears.
