The FAMiLY Leader, coming off a successful Leadership Summit last week that featured Dr. Tony Evans and Tucker Carlson, put out the following statement on Wednesday regarding the vote on H.R. 8404, which codifies homosexual marriage and repeals the Defense of Marriage Act.

“Last night, the U.S. House of Representatives rejected the truth that marriage is between one man and one woman. Especially disappointing, three of Iowa’s representatives (Axne, Hinson and Miller-Meeks) voted to redefine marriage. Congresswomen Hinson and Miller-Meeks were among the minority of Republicans who chose to do so. Thank you to Rep. Randy Feenstra for standing strong for truth and voting no. We urge Senators Grassley and Ernst to oppose the redefinition of marriage.”

  1. I know the stakes in the fall election and will vote Republican. Another hold my nose and vote event in too many cases. The alternatives are too evil and timeliness too critical. But we must not forget any of this come primary time.

    I wonder if the organizations Iowa Faith & Freedom (IF&F) and Iowa Family Policy(IFP) interviewed the Iowa delegation on the subject of marriage and if so shouldn’t that be a part of their commentary at this time? And if not were there statements the politicians made that would have revealed their position that the organizations did not report to the state or bother with in honoring them at various functions? Surveying candidates is traditional and useful enterprise for pro-family organizations. Both organizations should have used their auspices to inform the public of the candidates positions on the matter.

    The statements of IFP and now IF&F which said they found the vote “Especially disappointing, (that) three of Iowa’s representatives (Axne, Hinson and Miller-Meeks) voted to redefine marriage.” Well how was Axne “disappointing”? The word is essentially defined as failing to meet expectations. In what universe is a Democrat voting as such unexpected?
    I make the point in trying to figure out the homogenization of the term applying it to Hinson and Miller-Meeks. The matter would seem to call for stronger language. If that is all they can muster — such a mild rebuke from another — it would seem to green light Grassley and Ernst to entertain their not unheard of pathetic capabilities.

    he bill has deep cultural implications and effect. Grassley and Ernst need to step up and tell the Dems where to get off . . . that they are not going to sanctify the language of the bill.
