For all those who think that turning the tide on marriage here in Iowa isn’t a big priority, you need to read this article about the five-year anniversary of gay marriage in Massachusetts.
Basically, the article states that, at first, there was big uproar over the court decision that said gay marriage should be legal in the Bay State. But now, five years later, the calls for a referendum have pretty much ceased and it’s only the religious wackos still calling for action to overturn the court’s decision.
This is all the more reason for Iowans to take a stand now against the state sanctioning of this unhealthy lifestyle. Else we might end up like Massachusetts, with religious organizations not being able to participate in the facilitation of adoptions, kids in school being taught how to have “safe” anal sex in schools, and a whole generation of children growing up with a warped sense of what a family is.
And now back to good old Iowa, where the gay rights lobby (a/k/a One Iowa) is busy patting themselves on the back for a job well done. And they’re not just patting themselves on the back, they’re holding a special reception to honor Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal and House Speaker Pat Murphy for their work in preventing a vote on a marriage amendment in the Iowa legislature.
Wait, I thought it was the Republicans who were the “obstructionists.” I guess I was mistaken.
Our dear president thinks that gay marriage in Iowa is a laughing matter.
At the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, this was President Obama’s idea of a joke:
“David Axelrod is here,” Obama told the crowd. “You know, David and I have been together a long time. I can still remember…I tear up a little bit when I think back to that day when I called Ax so many years ago and said, ‘You and I can do wonderful things together,’ and he said to me the same thing that partners all across America are saying to one another right now: ‘Let’s go to Iowa and make it official.'”
Someone should tell B.O. to keep his day job, ‘cause he’s just not that funny. Wait, on second thought, he’s not so good at his day job either.
