A thistle to those who gathered at the Iowa Capitol last week to push for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. The group says its message is about love and religious truth, but it looks more like a message of hate and intolerance. There are numerous worthy causes activists can dedicate themselves to if they are trying to make Iowa a better place to live. Trying to strip some Iowans of equal rights is not one of them. Yet some of the people involved in the anti-marriage movement seem to have made a life’s work out of discriminating against others. That goes against Iowa’s long heritage of tolerance.
