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.
