I was pretty surprised - Iowa is a typically conservative state

I was somewhat shocked, I always thought the states within the midwest would be some of the very last to make same sex marriages legal.

Well, we're all going to hell eventually anyway so it's only a matter of time before everyone approves of it.

I was unaware of Iowa's leadership in social issues.

Thus, I was surprised, but very pleased when I heard that they were allowing gay marriage.

I wish California would get off it's ass and do the same.

I'm not surprised at all. I expect that every state's gonna legalize gay marriage eventually. I'd be surprised it they refused to legalize it.

I was utter disgusted. I hope hurricanes and earthquakes kill the citizens of Fagtown, Iowa. Death to queers, in the name of God and America. If you support fag marriage you hate America, and you should be executed for treason.

I didn't even know about it until I read this question. But I'm not really surprised.

No, not really. I live in Iowa, BTW. Don't know why that matters, though.

No, just another step towards Gay Domination. Cower in fear, heteros, your reign is at an end.

I don't know if this is from gay marriage - maybe people in Iowa are just more family valued? Dunno...
