One small step at a time then a half step backward–Iowa Permits Same-Sex Marriage, for 4 Hours, Anyway.
I’m happy about this for three reasons:
I believe same sex marriage has more benefits to the individuals and society than making it illegal. Hence it’s “the right thing to do”.
It causes Democrats heartburn in the coming election.
It forces the issue of full faith and credit between the states with regards to licenses of all types–including concealed carry licenses.
I do agree it really should be handled in the legislative arena rather than the judicial arena but court action such as this forces the legislature to address it.
