Another sick liberal judge seeks to make laws from the bench:
Marriage is based on a Christian-Judeo belief of a man and a woman forming a union to procreate and/or express the ultimate form of love and avoid adultery. Liberals want to dilute marriage because doing so fits right into their immoral, anti-God agenda. It's time we start impeaching activist judges who are installing their personal beliefs on everyone else. These liberal judges have no regard for the people, law or the Constitution (which is based on Christian-Judeo principles). Hopefully the Iowa Supreme Court will see this case and overturn this pathetic decision.
DES MOINES, Aug. 30 (AP) — A Polk County judge on Thursday struck down Iowa’s law banning same-sex marriage and ordered the county recorder to permit gay and lesbian couples to marry.
Less than two hours after word of the ruling was publicized, two Des Moines men applied for a marriage license, which was accepted and filed.
The ruling by Judge Robert Hanson concluded that the state’s prohibition on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. He ordered the Polk County recorder to issue marriage licenses to six gay couples who had filed a lawsuit.
“This is kind of the American Dream,” said a plaintiff, Jen BarbouRoske, of Iowa City. “I’m still feeling kind of shaky. It’s pure elation. I just cannot believe it.”
Gay couples from anywhere in Iowa could apply for a marriage license from Polk County. The process takes three days, however.
Polk County is expected to appeal the ruling to the Iowa Supreme Court.
County Attorney John Sarcone said the county filed a motion for a stay from Judge Hanson, which if granted would prevent anyone from seeking a marriage license until an appeal could be heard.
