I agree with same sex marriage. It is about time, if two people want to unite together why not. It is also relevant as a legal issue such as wills, benefits, social security and the ability to adopt children. It is a alternative lifestyle that is valid and should be recognized it is not going to go away like some conservative would like to have happen.

Other than for religious reasons, why on Earth would anybody object ?

I'm all for it. If two people want to make a legal commitment, it's a good thing.

I saw a bumper sticker yesterday that said: When the power of love overcomes the the love of power we will have world peace. A nice sentiment voiced by none other than Jimi Hendrix.

How the heck fid Iowa get on the list? That shot my eyebrows up.

Here in Florida, gay people can't even adopt, and if they've adopted in other states and moved here, there's still a back-and-forth battle in appeals courts over whether the state will even recognize them as the legal parents of their own children.

You want to know about Iowa?

As a lifelong Iowan, I would say we are libertarians at heart.
We just want to be left alone with a minimum of hassles.
But the darkest parts of Iowa are still pretty conservative
and next year's gubernatorial election will be ugly. I think
most Iowans would tell you "it's none of my business"
what people do in the privacy of their own homes. But
same-sex marriage and is already the core bugaboo of
the Republican challengers' campaigns and I just can't wait
for the ugliness. (the sarcastically challenged will have to
do without emoticons)

Sorry to hear that Foogs. Had a little flame of hope going there for a second.

I suppose it's something that it ever passed in the first place. Baby steps. Sometimes you fall.

Getting nasty here, too. Maybe it will be okay and sanity will prevail. Good luck.

Smoke I just moved from Florida remember Jeb Bush politics still in place. They still have some very stauch conservative ideals. Not surprised about that law.
