Iowa Passes Gay Marriage

A march on Iowa produces great results

Although 8 states allow some form of gay marriage/civil unions, the unassuming state of Iowa has become the third American state to allow FULL gay marriage?
This is great for Iowa.
A VERY sensible state indeed.

Marriage isn't always a religious ceremony.
No specific religion owns the concept of marriage.

It belongs to all of humanity and this is one step further in the right direction. Discrimination is so yesterday.

Everyone should be able to get married.

Dear Readers,

In a unanimous decision, Iowa's Supreme Court ruled that the state cannot prohibit same-sex couples from seeking marriage licenses. "On our review, we hold the Iowa marriage statute violates the equal protection clause of the Iowa Constitution," the court held. "A statute inconsistent with the Iowa Constitution must be declared void, even though it may be supported by strong and deep-seated traditional beliefs and popular opinion."

It's a start......only 45 to go.....
