Anti-gay Iowans LUV you

Timothy Kincaid

December 28th, 2009

From the Des Moines Register

The Iowa Family Policy Center\’s action committee announced this morning a new campaign to oppose equal marriage rights for same-sex couples.

The legislative initiative is being called “Two Days For Marriage” and is in conjunction the Let Us Vote Iowa Campaign, also being called the “LUV” campaign. The goal of the group is to begin a process that would allow Iowans the opportunity to vote and end the marriage rights of same-sex couples.

Those wacky anti-gays. Only they could come up with an acronym that means the opposite of the word it most closely resembles.

Iowans already have a vote on this and all other matters as set forth in their state’s constitution. If a sufficient number of them have decided that it’s time to amend or re-write that constitution, they are free to follow the process set forth in that governing document for doing so. Whining because it’s difficult doesn’t endear one to this group…

Yet another example of someone on the right witholding information to make something sound more sinister than it is, and not wanting to play by the rules.

Iowans have every single right to vote to change their constitution after two consecutive sessions of congress have approved it for a public vote.

Any Bets Maggie Gallagher(and her Mormon Money Men) are behind this? It reeks of them.
