Iowa goes the way of the bigots

Zach Wahls, a 19-year old engineering student who was raised by a lesbian couple, speaks against Iowa’s proposal to outlaw gay marriage. He is both succinct and brilliant. An unusual combination.

And yet  the Iowa House of Representatives voted 62-37 in favor of Joint Resolution 6, thus prohibiting legal same-sex marriage in their state.

Someday we will look back on legislation like this and wonder how so many bigots could get elected to a state legislature at one time.
