The Iowa Republican: Where do we go from here?
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
In a matter of days, the Iowa legislature will adjourn and will not
return to Des Moines for another nine months. It is probably safe to
assume that the Iowa legislature will end their session on or before
Friday, April 24th, just before the first marriage licenses are
granted to same-sex couples that next Monday. We have seen a flurry of
rallies, speeches, and news stories about those of us who are opposed
to the Iowa Supreme Court's opinion that has opened the door to
same-sex marriage in Iowa. But, what happens when the State Capitol
goes from the bustling hub of political activity it is now to a quiet
and empty tourist attraction? How will the supporters of a
constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and
one woman continue to advocate for its passage?
