Which teaches us what?
Republicans are against equality, Democrats are not.
Sorenson had asked all 50 senators to call up Senate Joint Resolution 8--a bill to amend Iowa's Constitution to specify that marriage is only between one man and one woman--but Democratic Senate President Jack Kibbie said “No.”
Now, he did agree to allow a vote on whether to suspend the rules and override his objection, but the 26 Democrats voted No, and the 24 Republicans vote Yes, so it was....No..
Kent Sorenson, like the bitch he is, is planning to “file numerous amendments and use any other tactic at his disposal” in order to force a vote on same-sex marriage because, you know, fags shouldn't be treated equally under the law. And once Kent makes the fags Constitutional Second Class citizens, maybe he'll take on the Mexicans or the Blacks, even women. I mean, women have the right to vote?
Sorenson called the debate over same-sex marriage “my generation’s defining moment.” Wow, so he wants his generation's defining moment to be one where he tells people that the Constitution doesn't apply to them?
Let me say this again: if your personal beliefs are that homosexuality is wrong, and that gay people don't deserve equal rights, that's okay. See, this is America, and you get to believe and say whatever you want. And if your religion teaches you that homosexuality is wrong and that marriage has traditionally been a one man/one woman concept--which it hasn't--then that's all right, too.
But what isn't all right is for you to use your personal beliefs, or your religion, to deny rights to people in this country. It says "All men are created equal" for a reason.
Stay strong Iowa.
