A remarkable quote

“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,” Justice Mark S. Cady wrote for the seven-member court.

The Iowa Supreme Court decision, I believe, really threw down the gauntlet on this issue, providing an argument that wipes out/dismisses most of the traditional arguments against gay marriage.

The follow up will be interesting to observe.
