Woooot!! Iowa Gets It!

Iowa Court Says Gay Marriage Ban Is Unconstitutional

Of course, the H8ers will mobilize their religious drones and phone trees, and try to pass Prop H8 constitutional amendment there, too. The petty theocrats that prevailed (for now) in California will set their sights on Iowa, and start trying to write discrimination into that state's constitution, too.

The fact that people feel they need to dictate how others live and love still saddens me immensely.

Honestly, I never thought this would even be discussed in my lifetime. Im ecstatic with every victory and shrug off every defeat because even with a loss we take a step forward.

Please help me spread the word on this.

I have never understood why nobody has contested the ban on gay marriage as a violation of the First Amendment.

It clearly constitutes an establishment of religion.

Not just the First Amendment - the "leave it up to the states" violates the "Full Faith and Credit Clause".

"Article IV, Section 1 of the United States Constitution, commonly known as the Full Faith and Credit Clause, addresses the duties that states within the United States have to respect the "public acts, records, and judicial rulings" of other states. " - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_Faith_and_Credit_Clause
