Unlikely Defenders of Gay Marriage - Iowans

You know that the world is in a weird strange state of affairs when California rejects gay marriage and IOWA defends it! Link

The Iowa State Supreme Court unanimously (!)  upheld a county ruling saying that marriage should not be limited to one man and one woman (what about otters though).  They are they third state nationally to approve of these rights, and the first midwestern state to do so. The California State Supreme Court will be returning their ruling on the legality of Proposition 8 sometime in the next month or two. 

My thing is really WHO FUCKING CARES!!! I'm straight, why do I care what gay people do? It doesn't even effect me in any tangible way. Give them their tax breaks, give them their healthcare, give them their right to collect their partner's estate. WHO CARES!!! Religious zealots, you are not God, and thus, have no business saying what you think God thinks about gay people. For all we know, God could be a hermapherdite- both sexes. Sure as hell makes more sense than some white bearded Zeus like character, or wait that was the Pagans right?

Anyway, whoever you are, whoever really cares about this issue and thinks that family values are going to be fucked up by the gays...please, please just let it go. It really isn't that big of a deal when you consider all of the other things we could/should be doing with our tax dollars.
