    Wink Gay marriage legal in Iowa for one day

    Yesterday, Judge Robert Hanson of the Polk County (Iowa) District Court, ruled that the ban on same-sex marriage in Iowa was unconstitutional. This had the effect of legalizing gay marriage in Polk County. Polk County is the location of the state capital, Des Moines, & is the residence of 400,000 persons out of a state population of 2.9 million. This morning, Judge Hanson stayed his ruling to allow further review of his ruling by the appeals court. At least one gay couple obtained a marriage license & were married by a Unitarian minister before Judge Hanson issued his stay. The issue will ultimately be decided by the state court & at some point by the US Supreme Court. The move towards legalizing same-sex marriage in the US has been through the courts, with Judges discovering a right to same-sex marriage that has been overlooked for 200 years.

    This does not really bother me. To each is own.

    If they stay away from me, that is what counts.

    Besides the issue of same-sex marriage, this is also about judicial activism. Most of the major changes in US society over the last 60 years have come from judicial decisions, not legislative action. Desegregation of housing, public schools & places of public accommondation, bussing to achieve racial integration, along with decisions on abortion & sodomy laws have been decided by the Supreme Court, with the other two branches of government meekly obeying. Because of judicial activism, only 9 persons were actually able to vote for president in 2000.

    Ditto! I'm not a fan of the gay pride scene, but as long as they stay away from me and don't stick their noses in my ass (pun intended).

    People need to stop worrying about others lives. What people do behind closed doors has nothing to do with you. Homosexuals exist in many species of animal, even man, gotta deal with it. Every species will produce it's fair share of non breeders, be they homosexual, sterile or other.

    With the way the world is today and as much as many Xian / Muslim / Jewish fundies hate it, homosexuality is positive on a few levels... I.E. Less idiots breeding more idiots into an already over populated world.

    I do understand other folks' views on the flamboyant homosexuals, those people really bother me. Also the "Gay Pride" stuff... IMO if Gays want to be treated like everyone else, they should stop separating themselves from the masses with their "Pride" and stupid parades. Act different and seek to be different, you will be viewed as different, simple fact.

    This is not about what goes on behind close doors between consenting adults. This is part of an agenda to redefine Societal norms. Homosexuals are demanding that the state recognize & sanction homosexual unions in the same way that traditional marriage is recognize. This makes it my business.

    What's the big deal? Why does it bother you so much that two people of the same sex want to be able to do their taxes together, have insurance listed together etc etc? That's all it really is to them, they want to be legally married, most won't even have religious weddings. You just need to get over yourself and realize they pay their taxes and contribute to your countrys economy just like all the other straight couples do.

    Go ahead and rant, rave and post a bunch of goofy religious opinions, I won't be reading. Finished with this thread, I said my piece.
