Michael Gronstal is my new hero

Iowa Senate Majority Leader Michael Gronstal blocks an amendment to reverse the state Supreme Court decision that declared a ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional.

His remarks aren't lengthy but you can hear the emotion in his voice. What a courageous, inspiring speech in support of gay and lesbian Iowans. Indeed, in support of all people who care about equal rights - and love. (Via Andrew Sullivan)

Agreed. There's nothing to lose here, and so much to gain. Go go Iowa!

Absolutely. As Senator Gronstal said so eloquently, this ruling only strengthens our society. Go Iowa!
