The US state of Iowa has become the third state to reject marriage as between one man and one woman

Iowa, HJR 6, Same Sex Marriage,

Iowa joined the ranks of the terminally befuddled when the state supreme court voted unanimously against marriage between one man and one woman.

This makes the third state to allow same sex marriage solely on the basis of court decisions rather than by the people's will. Even the court admits it ruled against the will of the people.

What can be done about this madness? For the people of Iowa it is simple. Contact your legislators.

There is three weeks in which to bring HJR 6 to the floor for a vote in the Iowa House. Unfortunately, the measure is being blocked by the House leadership, and will require a 2/3 majority to even bring it to the floor. Already, Iowa legislators are hearing from their constituents, and some are even canceling town hall meetings and other public events simply because they don't want to face voters angry about their unwillingness to stand for marriage.

There are 33 Iowa House members whose support will be critical to bring HJR 6 -- the Iowa Marriage Amendment -- to vote by the full House during the last two weeks of this year's legislative session.

These 33 legislators need to know how critical this issue is, not only to their own constituents, but also to the entire nation, as the Iowa decision will embolden and energize gay marriage activists all across the nation. The Court had it wrong -- "The traditional notion that children need a mother and a father" isn't "based more on stereotype than anything else." It's based in common sense, natural law, and the very essence of the way God designed the family structure. Marriage is about moms and dads -- raising their baby together.
