Activist Judges Force Gay Marriage Upon People of Iowa

As the nation is still absorbing the actions of activist judges in Iowa that forced same-sex marriage upon the people of that state and potentially the nation, the faithful in the Hawkeye State are working hard to persuade the Democratic leadership in the state legislature to move quickly to protect marriage.

Iowa is a key state in picking our nation's Presidential candidates every four years, though if the nation's heartland should go forward with eradicating marriage that special status might quickly change. Persuading the state Democrats will not be an easy task.

For over 40 years the state was a Republican majority state. However, in 2006 and 2008 Tim Gill, a homosexual billionaire seeking to take out legislators across the United States who support traditional marriage, flooded the campaign coffers of Democratic candidates at the last minute, effectively buying the Democrats a majority in the legislature -- and ensuring that Iowa would not pass a marriage amendment.

The homosexual activists also have a close friend in President Barack Obama. On Friday night the President issued a press release on the Iowa decision saying that he supported civil unions rather than same-sex marriage but that the states should decide the matter.

Within two hours the President was forced to change and re-issue his press release after homosexual activists complained that the first version did not include the words "equal protection." I spoke over the weekend to Chuck Hurley, president of the Iowa Family Policy Council. They are working hard in the state and you can help them with both prayers and financial support.
