American Heartland Values
Iowa's Supreme Court says that the state's ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional. And note that that's under Iowa's State Constitution, so the U.S. Supreme Court has no jurisdiction to review it. Federalism and all that.
Of course, there's the immediate push-back:
...opponents wasted little time in pushing for a state constitutional amendment that could send the issue to voters.
Hey, I've got a great idea for a Constitutional Amendment:
In matters of sex, romance, and/or domestic living arrangements between consenting adult humans, the Legislature shall mind its own goddamn business.
How's THAT for a classic American value?
