In Flyover Country: Big day in court
Excerpted from this post at In Flyover Country
The Iowa Supreme Court today will begin deliberations on the gay
marriage case in Iowa. If you'll recall, it was just before Labor Day
weekend 2007 that produced the explosive decision by Polk County's own
Judge Hanson that said homosexual couples could indeed marry in Iowa.
Iowa's case is a little different, because unlike other states where
gay marriage is recognized, it applies ONLY to those states. In
Iowa's case, same-sex couples from across the country can converge on
our state to marry. That is, IF the Supreme Court rules that our
Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. This should make liberals
more than a little uneasy. Their inaction on this issue, with their
weak-kneed statements that say, "We already have a law, don't need a
constitutional amendment, and if the courts decide otherwise we'll
revisit the situation," just isn't going to cut it.
