Last week The Iowa Standard wrote a column about the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition’s support of pro-choice Republican Rep. Jane Bloomingdale, LGBTQ ally Rep. Joe Mitchell and their silence on H.R. 8404, a bill that repeals the Defense of Marriage Act, codifies homosexual marriage and will force Iowa to recognize whatever definitions of marriage California and New York may create.

The good news is that Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition did put out a statement after The Iowa Standard’s piece posing the question of whether or not it would remain silent.


Shortly after we published our piece, Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition President Steve Scheffler said:

“We are disappointed in the U.S. House’s vote this week to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act. But we are particularly disappointed in the 47 Republican members of the House who voted in favor of this repeal, including two of Iowa’s own in Congresswomen Hinson and Miller-Meeks. We do want to express our appreciation to Congressman Randy Feenstra for standing with Iowa voters to support historical and biblical understandings of marriage. Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition urges Iowa Senators Grassley and Ernst to oppose this and any other effort to redefine marriage.”

Third Congressional District candidate Zach Nunn also said earlier this week he would have voted along with Hinson and Miller-Meeks.

The bill could come up for a vote at any time in the United States Senate.

Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition will be hosting a house party with Vice President Mike Pence on Aug. 19 at 5:30 p.m. Individuals can RSVP to 515-971-7363 or [email protected] or through Eventbrite.

The suggested contribution is $25 per person. Light refreshments will be served.

  1. I knew Zach Nunn was a RINO from the beginning. No doubt he is in favor of sending billions of dollars to the crooks in Ukraine for perpetual war, too. Most Republican politicians play games with conservatives but are really part of the deep state, or want to be.
