  •  Civil Unions are a weak compromise (2+ / 0-)

    The Iowa Supreme Court's opinion Friday made it crystal clear that civil unions do not satisfy Iowa's Equal Protection Clause.  Civil Marriage does.  

    Many Democrats are too afraid to support the Constitution on this issue and all too willing to dump the question in a court's lap.

    Stand up for those who have stood up for you.  Civil Marriage is no threat to religious marriage - marriage has survived quite well in France where religious marriages have only religious import, and only civil marriage is recognized by the state.  And that was instituted by Napoleon.  Somehow Napoleon did not hire cowardly consultants to whisper "oh no" in his ear at every turn.

    Your sense is more common than mine.
