Iowa bishops call for constitutional convention to defend marriage
September 24, 2010
A year after an Iowa Supreme Court ruling imposed same-sex marriage on the state, the state’s bishops are urging Catholics to vote for a state constitutional convention that would permit passage of a marriage amendment.
“Every ten years, including this year, Iowa voters have the opportunity to call for a constitutional convention,” the Iowa Catholic Conference noted. “A ‘yes’ vote on this measure will allow Catholics and others to work for a marriage amendment to the Iowa constitution. This amendment would affirm the traditional understanding that marriage is a union of one man and one woman.”
