The voters would have to change the Iowa Constitution. The ban was declared unconstitutional. If you want to deny gay Iowans their right to be treated like other Iowans you will need to change the constitution. You can't just "Let the people vote!"
There are plenty of Iowans who are terrified of equality, but I do not think it is enough to muster to the votes to change our constitution for this ridiculous cause.
A famous Republican once said, "If you don't like gay marriage, don't propose to the guy in the next stall."

There are currently a lot of restrictions in our state laws relating to "marriage." You cant marry your sister,a 14 year old, your mother, your dog, your horse or even your chicken. You can have sex with any of them if you are strange. Maybe Mike Gronstal would like see "equality" for those folks that choose those "sexual orientations" too.

The issue is not who YOU have sex with. The issue is equal rights for adult humans. Your theory is as dumb as snot.
