cry-babyTraditional Values Coalition Chairman Rev. Louis P. Sheldon writes on The Hill Blog about the Iowa Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage:
The Iowa Supreme Court issued a ruling last week that overturns a state statute defining marriage as a union of one man and one woman. Once again, an activist court has run roughshod over the desires of hundreds of thousands of Iowans who supported a Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in 1998. DOMA passed by a 40-9 margin in the state Senate and an 89-10 margin in the House.

This latest decision makes it all the more urgent for Iowa to pass a constitutional amendment that will define marriage as a union of one man and one woman. The Iowa Supreme Court may be less anxious to declare a constitutional amendment unconstitutional.

Yeah, those activist judges appointed by Republicans.

Rev. Sheldon babbles some more about churches losing funding, homosexualist agendas in schools, and that "religious freedoms are in jeopardy."
