We do not like homosexuals. We are just too darn smart for that.

YEAH!!!!!!!!!!
We??? Do you have a mouse in your pocket? You shouldn't assume that you speak for everyone who lives in the state of Iowa. I happen to have family and friends who live there, and they do not support what you are claiming.

I guess the GOP Hate Machine.....wants Iowa to SPEND MILLIONS $$$ in court,and YEARS of Litigation. You think the people that HAVE BEEN married are gonna sit idly by,and let this happen..? This WILL BECOME another Prop (Hate)8 case.......you will NOT Dissolve the 1000's of Marriages that have,and will have taken place........and at the same time, you WILL Put Iowa In the History Books, as a Hatin',Bigoted state ON THE WRONG side of History , while forever ruining it's Reputation of Fairness and Equality.......see, it was NEVER Just about the Judges...it was about Bigotry AGAINST LGBT Iowans ALL ALONG..........all you gotta do is even look at the wording they want to strip TAx paying Gay Iowans, of thier rights to marriage,civil unions and even domestic partnerships..........you know, the Usual Christian Love.

Considering that you don't seem to know that just because the resolution has been introduced doesn't mean that it is going to pass, you don't seem to know that while there is support for it in the House, it's dead in the Senate even before it is voted on, and you also don't seem to know that in order to actually appear on a ballot, it must pass both chambers of the Legislature not just once, but in two consecutive sessions, meaning that the earliest that the public would even see this is three years from now (2014). Your claim that you are a part of one of the "smartest states" it seems is dubious at best. The good people of Iowa are incredibly unlikely to EVER get the opportunity to vote away the rights of their fellow citizens. I hope you're disappointed...

They all have higher average IQs..........

You must be at the bottom of your State's IQ list if you think for ONE SECOND that the Courts are going to allow the dumbass voters of Iowa to enshrine discrimination in your State's Constitution.

Newsflash, Slappy. Marriage equality is unstoppable. Those states that removed it will have to put it back when it becomes national law. And it will, Slappy, it will.

If this was really the best you could come up with, why in the hell would you even want to hit the reply button? I had already figured out that you were pretty much an idiot, I really didn't need any further proof of it. Iowa is in the Big Ten, well whoop de f*cking do, if you're in any way, shape or form a product of that university, their educational standards are clearly sh*t...
