The Iowa Republican: Gay marriage: The war begins

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Iowa conservatives are trying to find a creative way to force a vote
on a marriage amendment to the Iowa Constitution before the
legislative session concludes, which could now come at any time.
Others, including WHO Radio talk show host Steve Deace, don't think
that the Republicans in the Senate have done all they can since they
have not made a motion to suspend the Senate rules and force the
Democrats' hand. State Senator Merlin Bartz and the Iowa Family Policy
Center are encouraging county recorders not to issue marriage licenses
to same-sex couples on Monday when the Supreme Court opinion become
effective on Monday.
