Iowa Hearing on Same-Sex Marriage

April 7, 2011

Zach Wahls, a 19-year-old University of Iowa student spoke about the strength of his family during a public forum on House Joint Resolution 6 in the Iowa House of Representatives. Wahls has two mothers, and came to oppose House Joint Resolution 6 which would end civil unions in Iowa.

And in opposition?

All of the people walking away at the beginning of his hate-speech are a proper physical metaphor for what any sane person should be doing.

Every Christian person in the world should hang their head in shame after watching these two videos…

    Here’s an interview we just did with Zach where he talks about what it was like growing up with two mothers, what led him to decide to go and speak before the House of Representatives, how his life has changed after being thrust into the public eye, and what other young people can do to fight for equality and speak out against intolerance.

    I don’t think every Christian should own that ignorant bigotry as their own. It doesn’t make me want to hang my head in shame – he does not speak for me or for the God I know and love. What it does is make me angry that God would be so misrepresented and that God’s Word would be turned into a weapon of hate.

    Very nice. Wahls gave potent and authoritative voice to a view I have held for a long time. Very nice, indeed.

    As for the second clip, it is readings such as these that irritate me beyond measure.
