iowa stubborn

a press release this morning, from the iowa supreme court:
Des Moines, April 3, 2009In a unanimous decision, the Iowa Supreme Court today held that the Iowa statute limiting civil marriage to a union between a man and a woman violates the equal protection clause of the Iowa Constitution.

The decision strikes the language from Iowa Code section 595.2 limiting civil marriage to a man and a woman. It further directs that the remaining statutory language be interpreted and applied in a manner allowing gay and lesbian people full access to the institution of civil marriage.

it's worth reading the entire, unanimous decision.

    Ray: It's Iowa.
    John: Iowa? I could have sworn this was heaven.
    Ray: Is there a heaven?
    John: Oh yeah. It's the place where dreams come true.
    Ray: Maybe this is heaven.
