Iowans Eye Repeal of Gay Marriage Law


On the offensive in Iowa:

Last November, state voters in Iowa ousted three of the judges who approved the ruling that legalized homosexual nuptials, while Republicans picked up six seats in the state Senate. Then, this February, the state House of Representatives voted 62-37 in favor of a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage, civil unions and domestic partnerships.

... to traditional marriage supporters, Iowa was never a lost cause. Most polls do not show a majority of support for homosexual “marriage” in the Hawkeye State. Furthermore, it was the state Supreme Court, not the state legislature, which granted homosexual couples the right to marry.

... While Democrats had held a 32-18 advantage in [the state Senate], their advantage is 26-24 this session. “The Republican leadership is very committed to overturning the ruling. All of them are,” he said.

If state Republicans can regain control of the upper chamber next fall, and keep their majority in the House, they could vote to ban gay marriage in 2013 and 2015. The measure to amend the state constitution would then go to voters. --LifeSiteNews
