Did you feel that?
Did you feel the fragile underpinnings of your heterosexual marriage shifting, creaking as they became further bowed under the strain of force so malevolent it is certain to demolish all which falls into its distant perimeter?
I speak, of course, of two dudes being allowed to be happy with one another…
The Iowa Supreme Court issued a unanimous ruling Friday finding that the state's same-sex marriage ban violates the constitutional rights of gay and lesbian couples, making Iowa the third state where gay marriage is legal.
In its decision, the court upheld a 2007 district court judge's ruling that the law violates the state constitution. It strikes the language from Iowa code limiting marriage to only between a man a woman.
"The court reaffirmed that a statute inconsistent with the Iowa constitution must be declared void even though it may be supported by strong and deep-seated traditional beliefs and popular opinion," said a summary of the ruling issued by the court.
What good is it being in the majority if it doesn't give you the autonomy to impose your bigoted, mean-spirited, antiquated belief systems on minority groups with less political clout?
What's next? Polyamorous unions between underage leopards and orangutans?
