"As Iowa goes, so goes the nation"...?

Iowa's mini-DOMA is unconstitutional.
api.ning.com
Money quote:
The legislature has excluded a historically disfavored class of persons from a supremely important civil institution without a constitutionally sufficient justification.
Holy shit. Somebody actually read their constitution. I believe I just got the vapors.
Flyover Iowa is now officially more progressive than California and New York? 
Hahaha. Suck it, smug coastal progressives!
Heh, I kid. It won't last. As elsewhere, the Mormon and Catholic churches will again swoop in and use their immense tax-free resources to influence legislation by persuading Iowans:
ZOMYGODZ! 
TEH GHEYS R TAKIN YER RELIGIOUS FREEDOMZ! 
IF U LUV JESUS, UR GONNA GET SOOD 4 SHUR!
These autocratic churches will once again pay homage to the virtue and wisdom of the popular vote as applied to public policy. Jebus loves democracy, hates homos! 
Of course, when it comes to these churches' internal policy issues, well, they hardly need the ignorant opinions of the unwashed rabble when they already have the benefit of their appointed and enlightened priest-kings.

ha!

i almost thought this was a mistake when i saw it on the internets, like there was a West Iowa somewhere just South of LA that I never learned about in geography.

I'm sure the Church armies will descend in and ruin constitutionality and social equity.
