(CNN) – Voters in Iowa chose to remove three high court justices who helped make Iowa the first Midwestern state to permit same-sex marriage.
The vote marks the first time a member of the Iowa Supreme Court has been rejected by the voters under the current system that began in 1962.
No justices made sam sex marriage legal. The constitution did that.
When you don't reflect the will of the people who elect you this is what happens. Looking forward to the big liberal running for his life in 2012.
Thats justice. It was a good day and good riddens to those three.
They shouldn't have legislated from the bench.
Prejudice and Hatred are not only alive in the U.S., the vicious beasts are thriving. The Republican adoption of the Tea Party has nurtured it. It's growing so fast that I wonder how long the Republican Party thinks they can control it. Or is it already controlling the Republican Party? I've never heard such openly expressed racism at the polls as I did yesterday. It was sickening. It sounded more like 1952 than 2010.
That's right. Judges shouldn't follow the law or the Constitution. They should be beholden to popular public sentiment.
Maybe those people were listening to the wrong people. I don't believe anywhere in the Constitution does it say, same sex marriage are legal? You go, Iowans!!!
If you try to impose gay ajenda to normal people, then normal pople will react. We can under stand tansgenders by birth.. but anti nature-social- abnormal activists will not survive
America is on her way back!!!! To back we can't vote our federal judges, like those in the 9th circuit in California.
Way to go Iowa, that was awesome the way you got rid of three Justices because they helped progress equal rights to people of the Gay community.
Hopefully in 50 years, we will see equal rights of homosexuals as we now see equal rights of people of color or women – as a given.
Way to go Iowa! The MAJORITY of Americans who want to keep the legal definition of marriage as one man and one woman applaud the way you ousted the three Justices who chose to legislate from the bench and confuse equal rights with how marriage is legally defined. The will of the people will always trump the will of an activist group...
Everyone is "For" giving everybody equal protection and equal rights. Nobody disagrees with "Civil Unions" for gays and lesbians. The fact that you want to call it "MARRIAGE" is the issue! It's nothing but an attack on Christian Values. So get over it! It will never happen as long as you go into it with that attitude!
Good work Iowa!!! All branches of our government MUST be held accountable to the PEOPLE! Legislating from the bench MUST END. The whole country needs to go to this system of electing their judges.
