Essential Estrogen: Guest blog: Culver's silence speaks volumes
Excerpted from this post at BLOGNAME
Governor Chet Culver's silence following the Iowa Supreme Court's ruling that marriage is an equal opportunity institution spoke volumes. Those troubled by the Court's decision would do well to listen to that silence. When he broke silence, the governor acknowledged that he personally believes marriage is between a man and a woman. When a lifelong, deeply held and seemingly incontrovertible belief is confronted-unanimously-by a bench of our most respected and distinguished judges, the only responsible thing to do is slow down and take another, conscientious, look. That is what Governor Culver did. And that's why Chet gets it.
