The Iowa Supreme Court begins hearing a case that could bring gay marriage to Iowa. Battleground has a link to where you can listen to the proceedings. To be really honest I feel pessimistic about this trial. I think it has to do with how quickly the moral foundation of our country has been compromised. Less than nine years ago someone told be that this day would come, I didn’t believe them. I could never foresee our government thrown out the institution of marriage. I also didn’t see the quick march to socialism either but that’s what we have here today.
One of the things that bothers me the most about this case is how it ended up in the courts. You may remember it was the Democrat “leaders” in the State House and Senate who punted the issue to them because there was no way they would go on record by voting on whether or not gay and lesbian couples should be afforded special rights that allow them to marry. Ahhhh politics.
Jan Michelson had a great show yesterday about this. He talked about how No Fault Divorces have already gutted the institution of marriage. If the courts allow gay marriage in our state, our first action item should be to revoke our No Fault Divorce laws. Marriage isn’t something you do for a few years. The liberals on the left want to make this about health benefits and emergency room visitation, that’s just a sham.
Speaking courts, the Feds took the Illinois Governor into custody.
Chicago politics at its best, nothing like selling a seat to the United States Senate.
