-Iowa Supreme Court Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage

(-Iowa State Seal via Wikipedia)

DES MOINES, Iowa: In a unanimous ruling issued today (4/3/09), the State Supreme Court forced Iowa to become the third state where same-sex marriage is legal.

The court overturned the state’s ‘Defense of Marriage Act’ passed by the state legislature with overwhelming support. The case began with a 2005 lawsuit filed on behalf of six homosexual Iowa couples who were denied marriage licenses.

Douglas Napier, senior counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund observed:

“The Iowa marriage law was simple, settled, and overwhelming supported by Iowans…There was simply no legitimate reason for this court to redefine marriage.”

“And it’s astounding the Supreme Court would usurp the role of the legislature, put a choke hold on the democratic process, and take that from the people of Iowa and claim to know better, …They don’t know better — and the people of Iowa need to vote on a marriage amendment and put it in place and let the Supreme Court know that they can’t speak for them.”

Response: Another case of Judicial activism in creating laws contradictory to the wishes of the people. It really does amount to Judicial tyranny when judges take it upon themselves to overturn laws enacted by duly elected officials.

Note the motto on the Iowa State seal: “Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain.”  With one stroke of a pen, the court overturned the rights of the people and with judges like these there are no secure liberties.

Also with the stoke of a pen they have created by default a new definition of marriage–a policy which is opposed by the vast majority of Iowans. As San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom said last year about Homo-sexual marriage: ” Here it comes whether you want it or not!.”            *Top
