KB in Iowa BS: Californians Oppose 'Prop 8' Gay Marriage Ban (2422* d) RE: BS: Californians Oppose 'Prop 8' Gay Marriage Ban 25 Jun 09


KB in Iowa states that there seems to be very little activity on homosexual "marriage" since the new law has been brought in.... "I still have not seen a wedding or engagement announcement but don't check very often." This seems to bear out results from other areas and reinforces my view that the vast majority of homosexuals are not interested in "marriage" or monogamy and the issue is simply being used as by activists as a "normalisation device", and will not bring down promiscuity rates among homosexuals.

You have misinterpreted my post and misquoted me ake.

What I said was:
"I have not seen any coverage in the papers for the last month or so. There is the odd letter to the editor (some for, some against) but that is it. I still have not seen a wedding or engagement announcement but don't check very often."

As you can see I did not say there has been 'very little activity' on the same-sex marriage issue. I said it has not been covered lately in the papers. It was when it first became legal but, as I predicted upthread, it has dropped out of the news cycle. For the first few days there were interactive maps on some local websites showing numbers of licenses applied for on a county by county basis, there were quite a few in the more populous counties. I did a quick search but was unable to find an updated version. When the map was available earlier no search was required, it was right there for all to see.

As for the comment I made about announcements, I am only saying that I have not seen any such announcements in the local paper. I don't check very often so there may have been some that I did not see. I live in a very small town with a weekly paper but also subscribe to the daily paper from the somewhat larger town about 15 miles away.

There have been and will continue to be same-sex marriages in Iowa. Life goes on as before for those of us not entering into such a union.
