Really? That was my first reaction when I read the news that the Iowa Supreme Court had declared the law restricting marriage to a legal union of one man and one woman unconstitutional. It’s not so much that yet another state rendered this kind of decision so much as it is a midwestern state. No offense to the Midwest, but it’s not thought of as a bastion of progressive thought. Had Vermont, NJ, NY, Oregon or Washington been next, perhaps, but really, Iowa? Way to jump the line.
I am heartened by this news, though, because it shows how despite the invective that some old guard hurl at homosexuals, they are definitely working against the trend.
