Gay marriage rallies to open Iowa session

"The first days of 2010 Iowa legislative session will be marked by high-profile rallies over one of the state's most contentious issues - gay marriage," reports Sioux City Journal. One Iowa, an advocacy group for gays and lesbians, announced plans for a rally to demonstate "broad-based opposition to an amendment that would take away civil marriage protections from Iowans." The rally, called "Equality: Red, Blue and Purple," will be Jan. 10, the day before the legislature gavels into session. "It's basically an issue of fairness and equality," said Justin Uebelhor, a spokesman. Last week, the Iowa Family Policy Center said it plans to hold a rally in Des Moines on Jan. 12, the day Governor Chet Culver gives his condition of the state address.
