Iowa? Wouldn't have guessed that one to be number four.

Cue Patrick Bateman etc. to mouth off about perversion and the homosexual agenda

Dunno about perversion, but I would have assumed gay marriage was part of any homosexual agenda?
(Although in my anecdotal experience, gay friends seem to be largely apathetic on the matter, most of them preferring to be treated equally in law rather than getting hung up on the term 'marriage'.)

I agree with you that getting bogged down in semantics does detract from the equality argument.

The "marriage" thing is unfortunate because it conjures up images of two guys/girls walking down a Church aisle.

Yay. Another gay marriage thread. I can see this ending well. In 500 posts time.

Homosexual minutes? How very disappointing. One would have hoped for longer.
And homosexual matters arising? Oo-er.

Well it looks like it will be on the books until at least 2012
Not necessarily. A constitutional convention could be called in 2010 and a vote could be held on it in 2011.

The governor, Culver, did not come out in favour of the ruling, my guess is that he is waiting to see the lie of the land, but Iowa is not Massachusetts. It could vote Republican. My guess is is that the likes of Culver know this. He has a 55% aproval rating and is up for re-election.

Vermont has joined the list to-day. Ofcourse the people won't get a vote on it.

2 years on and the state of Iowa remains firm in it's commitment to equality.

Except that the voters got rid of a bunch of the pro-equality judges for their perceived 'activism'.
