    I call this a victory, a victory for society. The fact that resistance against gay marriage is so strong that the left actually has to resort to the force of the courts. Legally, the gays may have their rights, but in society, well, I am happy to say it will be long after we are all dead before our society will denegrate to accepting gay marriage as "civil".

    Note that the issue at hand here was a state law ruled to violate the IA Constitution.

    Should the people of IA be of a mind to do so, they can amend the Constitution to the same effect, rendering the ruling moot.

    Many states have done this, for this same reason.

    Can you believe that some people are actually proud of that too?

    At least we don't have the Taliban to deal with here.

    So I guess we should count ourselves lucky I suppose.

    It could be much worse.

Heterosexual marriage has been shown to result in those reasons being fulfilled. So does homosexual marriage. One cannot make the argument that homosexual marriage would lead to polygamy unless one can show that the things that the government deems as important, society-wise, in regards to marriage, can apply to polygamy. Can you show that polygamous marriage fulfills governmental reasons for supporting marriage? If you cannot, then this is a false conclusion.
