Today we tried to call up the Marriage Amendment (defining marriage as one man and one woman) and it was a show down between God's law and Iowa's Law.
Iowa's law won!
44 YES Votes - 42 Republicans, 2 Democrats
State Rep. Lance Horbach (R-Tama)
54 NO Votes - 0 Republicans, 54 Democrats
2 Absent - 2 Republicans (one in Iraq one attending family funeral)
Odds makers expected itafter all, it was ONE bible verses 6 volumes of the Iowa Code, 7 Supreme Court Justices, 54 Democrat Representatives, and every rule book the opposition could muster.
Did you ever wonder why there are 6 volumes of the Iowa Code, yet God's Law remains encompassed in only one time-tested book the Bible? That's because God doesn't accept amendments when his laws are broken! He has no interest in changing his laws in order to adapt to new lifestyles.
I could go on for hours sharing my frustration with the Supreme Court decision and the broken promises of Gov. Culver, but the real news for today is the vote count in the Iowa House.
Yes, God's Law lost this round and there will be more fights in the future, with the winners yet to be determined. Don't be discouraged, we've got a "ringer" on our side. When we get to the "final round" there will be no Supreme Court Justices, no volumes of the Iowa Code, no political favors there will be only one judge, holding his rule bookthe Bible.
