Cyclone Conservatives: Iowa Gay Marriage Debate: Fascinating Legislative Responses
Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives
After the August ruling by judicial activist Robert Hanson, this issue has been thrust into forefront of our debate here in Iowa. It's completely irresponsible to allow one unelected person to determine the social mores and policies of this state. If Iowa wants gay marriage, the people ought to vote either directly or have their legislators serve as their proxy. If those legislators screw up, the voters can throw 'em out. And rightfully so. ... It's embarrassing how powerful we've let the judicial branch become. And that's why I don't buy the bogus arguments presented by legislators who are against amending the constitution but for traditional marriage. They are clearly living in a bubble world.
