Iowa: The Gay Marriage Mecca?

Well, Iowa's most famous Loon is at again. Yep, Rep Steve King is worried about gay marriage being the downfall of our beautiful state.

“This is an unconstitutional ruling and another example of activist judges molding the Constitution to achieve their personal political ends. Iowa law says that marriage is between one man and one woman. If judges believe the Iowa legislature should grant same sex marriage, they should resign from their positions and run for office, not legislate from the bench.

“Now it is the Iowa legislature’s responsibility to pass the Marriage Amendment to the Iowa Constitution, clarifying that marriage is between one man and one woman, to give the power that the Supreme Court has arrogated to itself back to the people of Iowa. Along with a constitutional amendment, the legislature must also enact marriage license residency requirements so that Iowa does not become the gay marriage Mecca due to the Supreme Court’s latest experiment in social engineering.”

The "activist judge" who wrote the opinion is Justice Mark S. Cady, was appointed by former Governor Terry Branstad, who like "The Loon", is also a conservative Republican.

I guess all my gay friends who are planning vacations to Iowa better hurry, before the state finds a way to shield itself from the onslaught of non-resident gays bringing all their tourist money and stuff.

Steve the Loon doesn't want that.......morally objectionable money.

As for a lot of us........we'll take all the money ANYONE wants to spend in Iowa.

I know of some great spots for people to honeymoon in Iowa, whether gay or straight.
