Iowa Supports Gay Marriage And Prohibiting Constitutional Ban

Well of course it makes sense, but we’ve seen some crazier, contradictory policy moves before. The Iowa Civil Rights Commission this week backed the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage, while also coming out against the possibility of a voter-approved constitutional amendment banning it. Even Commissioner Rick Morain, a Republican, agrees with the group’s decision! “I don’t think we’re saying that there can’t be a constitutional amendment raised. I mean, that’s under the constitution. My personal feeling is that if that kind of amendment were adopted, it would clash with Article 1 of the constitution, which is the Iowa Bill of Rights.”
