I love Iowa.

Gay marriage ban is struck down (or, more precisely, Judge Hanson's district court ruling was affirmed by the Iowa Supreme Court). And did I mention we also set Barack Obama on his path to the White House? Our state is amazing.

I can't wait to read the decision.


The first paragraph of the decision, which was penned by Justice Cady, reads:
In this case, we must decide if our state statute limiting civil marriage to a union between a man and a woman violates the Iowa Constitution, as the district court ruled. On our review, we hold the Iowa marriage statute violates the equal protection clause of the Iowa Constitution. Therefore, we affirm the decision of the district court.]
