SPRINGFIELD -- There are still several months before same-sex couples can legally get married in Illinois, but a Republican state senator is looking to stop it. Senator Kyle McCarter wants to repeal the state's new law.

He has a history of speaking out against same-sex marriage because of his religious beliefs. He's introduced a bill to pretty much wipe the state's Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act from the books.

He wants to return the definition of marriage in Illinois to between a man and woman. The bill which was signed into law last fall, takes effect in June. Calls to Senator McCarter were not returned.
