Same-sex couples will be allowed to marry in Iowa by month’s end, after a ruling on Friday by the Iowa Supreme Court that found unconstitutional a state law limiting marriage to a man and a woman.I doubt that it'll ever happen, Democrats will be in control for at least the next 2 to 4 years and there'll never be enough GOP pols with enough balls to vote for it anyway, but this country needs an amendment that will protect the tradition of marriage. By jumping on the roots of the Civil Rights Era, liberals are slowly turning marriage into a "right", all to endorse their own sexual depravity and reduce marriage to a sham. Turn marriage into a "right" and there'll be nothing to prevent polygamists and people who wish to marry their pets from being married. We're already seeing signs of this in Canada, where polygamists are now suing for the "right" to be married while using the country's "gay marriage" approval as justification.
The unanimous decision moved the heated battle over same-sex marriage beyond the East and West Coasts to the nation’s middle. Only Massachusetts and Connecticut now allow same-sex marriages, while California permitted them for about six months before voters approved a ban in November.
“We are firmly convinced the exclusion of gay and lesbian people from the institution of civil marriage does not substantially further any important governmental objective,” Justice Mark S. Cady wrote for the seven-member court, adding later, “We have a constitutional duty to ensure equal protection of the law.”Opponents of same-sex marriage pledged to fight the outcome, but acknowledged that there appeared to be no immediate way to undo it. The only avenue would be a constitutional amendment, but under Iowa law that process would take at least two years.
And now for the "gay movement" here it's 3 states down with 47 to go. And what's to stop 'em? All they have to do is keep going to the courts and sure enough they'll eventually find some activist judge with an axe to grind to approve "gay marriage", no matter what the people think. It's that simple for them just like the tradition of marriage is that meaningless to them. God, we live in some sick times.
