The young man, indeed, is very well spoken and is a credit to his moms. As a life long Iowan, I have had a front row seat to this controversy. And I
freely admit, I voted to kick out each of our Surpreme Court judges after they overstepped their Constitutional boundaries and ruled the gay marriage
was permitted under our state constitution. For those still reading, I did not do it because of the issue, but more that the citizens of Iowa,
overwhelmingly expressed their desire to want to vote on the issue only to have their elected officials and judges take the matter out of our
Personally, I do not think it's a good idea. I have, however, told friends of mine who are homosexual, that should they come home to Iowa to marry
their significant others, I will happily attend the ceremonies and wish them all the luck in the world.
However, the one question no one has stepped to answer for me, is where do you draw the line? See as much as people like to say we cannot legislate
morality, the truth is, we do.....everyday.
So the question is, where do we draw the line? Because I know of at least three "triads" in Iowa who are planning to press for their right to become
recognized as legal marriages in Iowa. In case "triad" has confused some, it's two women, one man or one woman, two men. For those of you in favor
of gay marriage, are you okay with threesome marriages? Bigamy? Or as some are trying in places in Europe, the right for an adult to marry a minor?
Where are you willing to draw the discrimination line? Because, if you rule against the examples I just gave you.....you are discriminating against
those people, just as much as we would be discriminating against gay couples if we told them they couldn't marry.
