Bleeding Heartland: The coming battle to amend the Iowa Constitution

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

There's nothing opponents of marriage equality can do to stop gay and lesbian couples from getting married in Iowa starting on April 24. ... Statehouse Democrats met behind closed doors Monday to discuss the Iowa Supreme Court ruling, and at least a few Democrats support a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. However, I doubt Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal and House Speaker Pat Murphy would have released such a strong statement welcoming the court decision if they had any intention of letting a Proposition 8-style bill get to the floor of the Iowa House or Senate.
