You Really Ought to Give Iowa a Try

With all the bad news recently (including Larry Craig's reinforcement that homosexuality is shameful) about gay life, finally a positive sign. An Iowa court ruled today that the state cannot bar same-sex couples from obtaining marriage licenses. Money quote from the ruling: "Couples, such as plaintiffs, who are otherwise qualified to marry one another may not be denied licenses to marry or certificates of marriage or in any other way prevented from entering into a civil marriage pursuant to Iowa Code Chapter 595 by reason of the fact that both persons compromising such a couple are of the same sex." (I'm still looking for a link to the full text of the 63-page ruling.)
