Even though I don't consider myself anything remotely resembling a gay rights activist, I am happy for the gay/lesbian community and proud of Iowa for standing up for the civil rights of a minority group (namely, homosexuals) today by declaring UNANIMOUSLY an Iowa Constitutional amendment naming marriage as "between a man and woman" UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
I hope this shows a few things about the Midwest:
- We aren't afraid to embrace progressive ideas
- We aren't a bunch of ignorant Bible thumping pig fuckers
- We CAN set a good example for the rest of the United States
