Iowa conservatives still focused on gay marriage -Tribune

Don't forget that our Victories are incredibly precarious and precious still! We have to continue DEFENDING in places we've already won. Isn't that effed up?

Iowa conservatives still focused on gay marriage -- chicagotribune.com:
"DES MOINES, Iowa - Conservative leaders have promised to make gay marriage a central issue in next year's legislative elections and governor's race, and they're considering a push to oust the Iowa Supreme Court justices whose ruling legalized same-sex unions.

Iowa Christian Alliance President Steve Scheffler said his group will focus first on lobbying lawmakers during the legislative session that starts in January to amend the state constitution to ban gay marriage. Legislators who don't support that effort could find themselves facing opponents recruited and financed by the alliance, Scheffler said.

'We're going to encourage people, especially in key legislative races that are going to be competitive,' Scheffler said.

Gay marriage has been legal in Iowa since April after a unanimous Iowa Supreme Court upheld a lower-court ruling that found a state ban on same-sex marriage violated the Iowa Constitution."
