"It's a perversion and it opens the door to more perversions"

Look what I just read:
DES MOINES, Iowa – Iowa's Supreme Court legalized gay marriage Friday in a unanimous and emphatic decision that makes Iowa the third state — and the first in the nation's heartland — to allow same-sex couples to wed.

In its decision, the high court upheld a lower court's ruling that found a state law restricting marriage to between a man and woman violated Iowa's constitution.

"We are firmly convinced the exclusion of gay and lesbian people from the institution of civil marriage does not substantially further any important governmental objective," the Supreme Court wrote in its decision. "The Legislature has excluded a historically disfavored class of persons from a supremely important civil institution without a constitutionally sufficient justification."

Way to go Iowa!

I think this very obviously shows why this should not be a state decision. How can it be unconstitutional in Iowa, but perfectly legal in 29 other states?

It just doesn't make sense.

(The quote in the title was in the article and it made me smile.)
