Iowa Rep. Steve King Worried His State Will Become “Gay Mecca”
Republican Iowa Congressman Steve King is living in fear that the Hawkeye state will become “the gay marriage mecca,” now that the state’s Supreme Court ruled that it’s unconstitutional to deny same-sex couples the right to marry. Here’s what he said:
“This is an unconstitutional ruling and another example of activist judges molding the Constitution to achieve their personal political ends. Iowa law says that marriage is between one man and one woman. If judges believe the Iowa legislature should grant same sex marriage, they should resign from their positions and run for office, not legislate from the bench.
“Now it is the Iowa legislature’s responsibility to pass the Marriage Amendment to the Iowa Constitution, clarifying that marriage is between one man and one woman, to give the power that the Supreme Court has arrogated to itself back to the people of Iowa. Along with a constitutional amendment, the legislature must also enact marriage license residency requirements so that Iowa does not become the gay marriage Mecca due to the Supreme Court’s latest experiment in social engineering.”
King has a history of making unusuall comments, to put it kindly. He predicted, for example, that the election of Obama would lead to “a totalitarian dictatorship,” proclaiming, “There’s no freedom on the left.” Now, who again wants to deny gays freedom?Click here for reuse options!
