WTF is the Matter With Iowa?

From Instant Tea, the official blog of the Dallas Voice:
Iowa’s right wing is pushing for a vote on same-sex marriage. They’re using a new tactic.

In their decision, the Iowa Supreme Court cited state laws such as the anti-bullying law that includes protections for LGBT students.

So two Republicans in the Iowa House, Jason Schultz and Matt Windschitl, now want to remove protection for LGBT students to pave the way for an anti-same-sex marriage vote. They have filed the Exclude Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) Students from Safe Schools Law.

Opponents of equality are showing just how desperate they have become. If other tactics don’t work, file a law that tells bullies to beat up LGBT kids. Simply, incite violence to get their way.

It only stands to reason that any state that has gay marriage is going to be filled with wingnuts trying to overturn it, just as it stands equally to reason that any state Supreme Court ruling that protects LGBT students and people in general will be opposed by the same wingnuts who would seek to remove those protections.

Less Elton Johns and George Takeis and more Mathew Shepards! Huzzah!

Is anyone else waiting for the divine word to come down from on high to herd the Republicans in the showers and break out the Zyklon B or is that a bit much?

Hello Jurassicpork,

A wonderful touch "showers and Zyklon B". Most of the wingnuts will not get it as it passes directly over their heads.
