The state(s) of marriage: Tomorrow we get another?

by Jeremy Hooper

IowaEek!:

A long awaited and significant Iowa Supreme Court case ruling on same-sex marriage will be released tomorrow, likely at 8:30 a.m.

The case, Varnum vs. Brien, involves six same-sex Iowa couples who sued Polk County Recorder Timothy Brien in 2005, after his office denied them marriage licenses. Polk County District Judge Robert Hanson sided with the couples in a ruling last year, but he suspended his decision until the high court speaks.

May the ruling be reasoned, the "judicial activism" claims unacknowledged, and the tide further turned towards peace. And if not -- may the streets be filled with principled protest!
