Too Close For Comfort?

I am guessing the news coming out of Iowa today will be grinding on the nerves of our local homophobic bloggers as our neighbor to the Southeast becomes just the 3rd state to allow same sex marriage.
The Iowa Supreme Court this morning upheld a Polk County judge’s 2007 ruling that marriage should not be limited to one man and one woman.

The ruling, viewed nationally and at home as a victory for the gay rights movement and a setback for social conservatives, means Iowa’s 5,800 gay couples can legally marry in Iowa beginning April 24.

There are no residency rules for marriage in Iowa, so the rule would apply to any couple who wanted to travel to Iowa.

With the lack residency requirements, maybe Iowa will start a new cottage industry catering to residents of the 47 states still living in the dark ages?

UPDATE: The far right reaction is swift and predictable
