Now I just have to ask, what the hell is wrong with us, Wisconsin, when Iowa beats us to the pro gay marriage ruling?
But heck, we'll take all the victories we can get, nation and worldwide. You know what they say about Iowa being a sort of bellwether for the rest of the country, right? Well, let's hope that it rings true in this case, too.
My deepest congratulations to all of the Iowa couples who've finally won a fuller--and long overdue-- equality in their state.
"The decision strikes the language from Iowa Code section 595.2 limiting civil marriage to a man and a woman. It further directs that the remaining statutory language be interpreted and applied in a manner allowing gay and lesbian people full access to the institution of civil marriage."YES!
