Odd, but here is Oregon with a ban on gay marriage, and then I hear that Iowa makes gay marriage legal. Awesome.

Not exactly. The county in Iowa that Des Moines is in is where it is theoretically legal. But there's a stay until the state Supreme Court can rule on things.

And the Iowa politicians are making noises about going for an amendment to the state constitution so the state courts *can't* overturn it.

That's how Oregon got gay marriage outlawed. The OCA and friends got an amendment passed as a ballot initiative.

But *our* legislature passed a domestic partners law in spit of the amendment. There may be a court challenge...

And, of course, we still get to see if the OCA and friends manage to collect the signatures to get the domestic partners law and the anti-discrimination law voted on by the general public.

They are losing ground here, just not fast enough.

Let's hope they sling more mud.

You know... that expression: when you fling mud, you lose ground. :-)
