The Iowa Republican: Can't we all just get along?
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
While I'm sympathetic to those in the Iowa conservative movement who
don't want to compromise on issues like abortion and gay marriage (and
by compromise, I mean support things like parental consent and waiting
periods for abortion and residency requirements for gay marriage), I
just don't see the wisdom of those people who don't support these
things using valuable time and energy to discredit those who do. The
other thing that bothers me about this whole situation is that I don't
think standards are being equally applied. Some people are upset with
Rep. Steve King because they view his support of a residency
requirement as a compromise (despite the fact that King also
wholeheartedly supports a marriage amendment).
