Unanimous ruling: Iowa marriage no longer limited to one man, one woman


www.desmoinesregister.com

The Iowa Supreme Court this morning upheld a Polk County judge’s 2007 ruling that marriage should not be limited to one man and one woman.The ruling, viewed nationally and at home as a victory for the gay rights movement and a setback for social conservatives, means Iowa’s 5,800 gay couples can legally marry in Iowa beginning April 24.There are no residency rules for marriage in Iowa, so the rule would apply to any couple who wanted to travel to Iowa.

Shelly Wolfe and Melisa Keeton, who waited for word of the ruling outside the Polk County Recorder’s Office, immediately called their pastor anyway to make plans.“We’re going to make it legal,” said Keeton, 31, of Des Moines.Wolfe, 38, and Keeton, who is 21 weeks pregnant, went through a commitment ceremony two years ago. Their marriage certificate was among the 26 that were put on hold when Polk County Judge Robert Hanson’s decision to open the door for gay marriage was delayed until the high court could weigh in.

[...] Iowa: the first Midwestern state, and the third in the country, to allow same-sex marriages.

Homosexuals & their supporters (especially the world-government) celebrate as more people are forced to accept homosexuality and other acts, which are done to provoke christians & get a negative reaction from all non-occult religious-groups, "orthodox jews", "christians", and muslims. Those same groups influence most (if not all) people, who have joined Abrahamic groups or those, who claim to believe in the father of Abraham.

Equal rights for all people including those with different inborn sexual preferences is not occultist, its the only thing that's not evil. Denying them their rights is!

How in the hell does gay marriage effect any of us heterosexuals?

It doesn't.

Gay marriage allows everyone to be seen equal under the law no matter who they love.

That's a good thing in my mind. More and more states are moving in this direction and it's about time.

Once more, the central government not only refuses to acknowledge but refutes the Will of the People. Why even bother to vote when a handful of malcontent activists can overturn any vote through our corrupted socialist court system?

Oh yes, god forbid that they actually back the Declaration of Independance:


The United States Declaration of Independence, which was primarily written by Thomas Jefferson, was adopted by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776. The text of the second section of the Declaration of Independence reads:

We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Thank you.

If we all are created equal, then our rights should be equal. Gay people are no more or less than us straight people. Therefore, they should have the same rights as we do.

The will of the majority should never, ever be able to deny rights to the minority.

Congratulations Iowa! I pray for the day when I see the entire 50 states allowing gay marriage.

Civil rights should never be put to a vote.

Why California allowed it - is sickening.

What is wrong with gay marriage??

What is so offensive about their lifestyle choices?

I just don't get it. I know a few gay people and they are really nice people, no different than other people I know.

Last I checked, homosexuals were American citizen's too, so doesn't that mean their rights should be the same as every other American citizen? I think this ruling is good, and hopefully, every state will do it.

That's a great quote. Our votes do not count in the world of tyrants. Why would anyone want to vote, when the occult-government controls the so-called, "candidates" & they would rather control the world, rather than heed & research the opinions & facts about the religious (and spiritual) inhabitants of earth?

Majority doesn't rule. No one is spreading democracy in this world. It's funny to world-leaders/dictators & tyrants. This isn't a real republic, as well.

So, you are ok with denying "equal" citizens "equal" rights as long as the majority votes for it?

What happens the day you become part of the minority? Will your opinion change?

The problem is that we're not all "Americans", and we're not going to agree with each other about the laws of mankind for ever. We're all sick of being forced to accept different religions; traditions & sexually-motivated laws by governments (criminal-organizations), which don't follow their own laws in the 1st place.

The war against tyrants & their minions will not end, until they're thrown off their thrones. If you do enough research, you'll see how many dictators are closet-homosexuals, who pose as heterosexuals in public. They're responsible for pro-homosexual laws.

Hitler wasn't a christian, even though he opposed homosexuals, he was an occultist. All leaders in the world-government are occultists, and they love passing laws against their foes: people in Abrahamic-religious groups & laws for their supporters: Most of them are homosexuals & proud of it.

Loved-ones protect their own & provoke their foes.

Does this mean if I move to Iowa I can have two or three husbands?

I don't think I need more than three but who knows that might change.

Thanks. I've read that. I'm fully-aware that our world is ruled by a few, as well. A few expect the majority to follow all of their laws, as long as the majority are weak & ignorant. That's how life works on earth: Tyrants work hard to dominate the minds & hearts of the weak & ignorant (the majority) to stay on top of them.

The few monitor & track the movements of the majority, as well.

Religion is not the be-all-end-all.

It has no place in government and no place in the legal rights of people.

People can believe whatever they please, but their beliefs cannot trump the equal rights of citizens of this country.

It is inherently unfair.

I'm not in politics. It's a rigged-game. I don't care about the majority or minority of voters, and neither do the parties, for which they're voting.

We aren't being counted. Politics is an inside-joke. This world is ruled by tyrants, who make the laws & fiat-money. Why dare debate about any of that? It's simple to understand.

Hitler wasn't a christian

As far as I can see most 'Christians' aren't Christians either.

I mean Christ never said, 'Love thy neighbor as thyself only if they're not gay,' did he now ...

And let's not even mention 'turning the other cheek' !!

Just saying ...

In the big picture, this isn't about politics or religion.

This is about humanity. All of us are equal. None are more or less than others. That being the case, all of us should have equal rights.

Sometimes, it takes the dreaded political system to make that happen due to the short-sightedness and narrow-mindedness of certain groups of people.
