      ... look, this entire situation is that they are running the same playbook as what worked in CA.

      These types of constitutional amendments are to get Republican candidates elected and to launder the money via the Churches operating as PACs.  

      The Supreme Court thinks, well, we'll just go ahead and legalize it (marriage) and then wash our hands of it.

      The politicians get in bed with the churches.

      The churches do a lot of the dirty work, laundering the money from the campaign donors as it goes to the church tithes, non profit organizations, tax deductable.

      LOOK AT YOUR STATE LEGISLATURE.  Which Republican wing nuts in Iowa are getting funded by these non profit winger "family values" groups?

      Look at your county Republican organizations and see what is going on in their FEC accounts.  For example, in my county, the biggest individual donor to prop 8 also threw a huge slug of money to them using only the address of his business a few months back.  

      Look at your federal level Republican candidate's FEC electronic filings and see who is getting the disbursements and how they are connected to these "non profit" groups.

      This doesn't have that much to do with marriage as it does with furthering the Republican agenda of thwarting financial and health care reform.

      Does Iowa force these entities to disclose who donates?
