Iowa is Going to Become a Mecca for Homosexuals

It didn't take long for the typical reactions from the religious nuts to the decision by the Iowa Supreme Court overturning the ban on same-sex marriages. The rather tame lamenting of the lack of outlets for conservative anger by a U.S. News and World Report Religious blogger receives a quick answer when one of the first comments declares that "the people are going to take these decisions into their own hands." Followed by the more predictable and expected response that these horrible activist judges are going to destroy America with their evil agenda to do their jobs and uphold the Constitution. Then it took a rather comical turn with a new twist being applied to the old fear-mongering tactic. WorldNetDaily posted this audio of Iowa Congressman Steve King warning that all the scary homosexuals will be booking vacation packages and descending upon Iowa as a result of this decision.

BTW, while you're at the WorldNetDaily site make sure you look over the book "Shocked by the Bible," written by WND news editor Joe Kovacs. In it he "addresses incredible issues many people are simply unaware of" such as:
The practice of decking a tree with silver and gold is actually condemned by God
Animals had meaningful discussions with people.
There's a character in the Bible called a "dumb ass."
Underwear didn't disintegrate despite 40 years of heavy use.
The worst case of hemorrhoids in history is recorded.
Women's breasts are celebrated in the Bible.
Nagging wives are mentioned.
God ran lotteries.
There are magic tricks in Scripture.
Compelling stuff right there.

Update: Now that Vermont has overridden the governor's veto of legislation to legalize same sex-marriage, Republicans confused by the lack of their usual tactical means of dividing people and absent marching orders from their idols, have resorted to asking the readers of their blogs for ideas:
Normally this is where I’d gauge whether a constitutional amendment to overturn the decision is feasible or not, but since Vermont’s gone off-script I’m without an angle here. No reaction yet from prominent social cons either, although Huckabee, Romney, and Palin are all on record as supporting a Federal Marriage Amendment so it’s safe to assume they want this overturned even without the dastardly handiwork of “activist judges.” In lieu of further comment, let’s take the temperature of the Hot Air faithful with a poll.
