Iowa’s right wing is pushing for a vote on same-sex marriage. They’re using a new tactic.
In their decision, the Iowa Supreme Court cited state laws such as the anti-bullying law that includes protections for LGBT students.
So two Republicans in the Iowa House, Jason Schultz and Matt Windschitl, now want to remove protection for LGBT students to pave the way for an anti-same-sex marriage vote. They have filed the Exclude Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) Students from Safe Schools Law.
Opponents of equality are showing just how desperate they have become. If other tactics don’t work, file a law that tells bullies to beat up LGBT kids. Simply, incite violence to get their way.
