Gay marriage? In Iowa?

Wow. It must be very, very cold in hell today.

I like how the Iowa Supreme Court put it:
We are firmly convinced the exclusion of gay and lesbian people from the institution of civil marriage does not substantially further any important governmental objective. [Iowa lawmakers have] excluded a historically disfavored class of persons from a supremely important civil institution without a constitutionally sufficient justification. [To issue any other decision] would be an abdication of our constitutional duty.

Damn, er, straight.
