    Indeed, it would be a boon to the economy.

    It would be more interesting to see the citizens' reaction to this, not just homosexual individuals. (I don't think they would go for a riot, or would they? x.x)

    If some protest ensues, to the extent of physical damage (which I don't think is likely ._.), then the economy may be adversely affected. This is possible, though not quite probable, from my perspective. But you can never be too sure right Very Happy.

    In my opinion, the court made a good decision as it is one of the potential counter-actions to controlling the current recession.

    What are your thoughts on this, Grift?

    Well as far as the economy goes it is a short lived boon for iowa because as more states go towards same-sex marriage it will just equalize back out. I doubt there will be riots. Sure protests maybe but nothing violent. Personally I believe the federal government should decide weather they support or are against same sex marriage. And then leave it up to the churches to decide if they will marry same sex couple. But alas this wont happen since no the line spererating church and state has become so gray at this point that the matter wont be laid to rest for ages to come. But that is just my opnion.

    The big Q is whether other states would follow Iowa's footsteps at all. As you have said, the church and the government is in a dispute on whether gay marriages would be carried out in church, as there is no direct consensus regarding the matter.

    Anyhow, from my point of view, the church is conservative in nature. This goes without saying that they would usually go as far as homicide in order to preserve their beliefs, though today the church is not that radical and its power has diminished as time went by.

    Therefore to allow gay marriages (which is, indirectly against 'God's' will) would make the church's belief inconsistent, and that indeed would create a dent on the church's pride while also causing the devoted Christians to question their authority's validity. With that said, it would be unlikely for most churches to agree with wedding homosexuals.

    That is my opinion, as an Easterner. But generally Easterners are more shallow than Westerners (perhaps due to religion itself ._.), is it not? O:
