….and while I’m up here on the soapbox

Let’s hear it for Iowa Supreme Court justices who were forced to hear arguments upholding Iowa’s law limiting marriage to a man and a woman….According to the Des Moines Register, the oral argument to uphold the law was simply that to allow persons of the same sex to marry will discourage heterosexual couples from wanting to marry.  OH PLEASE…..

The article goes on to say that more than one justice observed that the state of Iowa has approved no-fault divorce, it allows convicted felons, sex offenders, deadbeat dads and prison inmates to marry and it currently allows gay and lesbian folks to adopt children or to be foster parents. 

This is not a constitutional law question…this is politics …as I have said before…us heterosexuals have certainly done a bang up job with marriage…maybe there is a fear that gay and lesbian couples will make us look bad.  Is it true that sperm donars and perverts have more rights in the marriage institution than two people who want to commit to one another and are like us in every way except for their sexual preference in the privacy of their own bedroom.  Somebody get me a rainbow flag…I want to march in their parade!
