excerpt from,"Iowa voters oust Rep. King, shunned for insensitive remarks"
Actually, from the gist of the article, he was ousted more for being ineffective congressman then his radical right view points.
Barry, Nebraska's constitutional amendment has been tested in Federal court, so we know that isn't going to be removed by any court.
Cal Thomas had an interesting comment on the Iowa action, [URL=http://townhall.com/columnists/CalThomas/2009/04/07/trouble_in_river_city]]]Trouble in River City[/URL]. This has something to say about other problems facing marriage besides homosexuality.
This is the way Kentucky went with our constitution. It hasn't been tested in the state supreme court yet. The University of KY actually agreed to pay benefits to same gender couples anyway. We also allow same gender couples to be foster parents and adopt children. I don't really know how i feel about this. There aren't enough hetrosexual couples willing to step up. I wish the churches would step up and promote this type of thing more.
If Iowans want to fix this problem, all they have to do is to add this to their state constitution, "Only marriage between a man and a woman shall be valid or recognized in Nebraska. The uniting of two persons of the same sex in a civil union, domestic partnership or other similar same-sex relationship shall not be valid or recognized in Nebraska." Only would take the change of state names to make it work.
