Huh.

Headline from this morning's Register:
Unanimous ruling: Iowa marriage no longer limited to one man, one woman

...guess the mere mention of polygamy wasn't really a "scare tactic."

I don't know enough about the Iowa Constitution to comment, really. The Iowans I know online are having literal orgasms about the ruling* (brain bleach). I suspect if it had gone the other way they'd be bitching about tyranny and oppression, although it seems more tyrannical to me to have laws implemented by a handful of judges instead of by elected representatives...

Hell, all they would have had to do was submit a bill to the current legislature repealing the old law. It would have passed easily, with no dissent allowed, like the new tax plan.

But I find the inference of polygamy the most interesting part. Don't know if it will be Muslims or "loving triads" who get first try at it...you can work up a good head of pathos for the latter, especially if there are half-siblings born from the relationship.

* They're also spewing all sorts of hatred, bigotry, and intolerance against Christians, nuclear families, and old people, as part of their celebration of "victory over hatred, bigotry, and intolerance!" and the irony is not amusing me.

I say let 'em, because given his kowtow to the King of Saudi Arabia, Obama most likely will cave to a show of terrorism, then it won't matter what judges rule. And I can't say I won't feel a little satisfaction in seeing liberals live under a *real* theocracy and an actual oppressive religion.

As opposed to their fictitious ramblings about Christianity. Because I must have missed all the gays being murdered in Rome for the crime of homosexuality and all that...
