Iowa Senate Leader Gronstal: my hero

The Iowa Senate leader has blocked the attempt to start an anti gay-marriage amendment from the Republican side. Watch this 2minute video. It's compelling, it's moving and it made BP cry. He said,
Last Friday night, I hugged my wife of 37 years... I felt like our love was just a little more meaningful last Friday night because thousands of other Iowa citizens could hug each other and have the state recognize their love for each other. No, Senator McKinley, I will not cosponsor a leadership bill with you.
Thank you, Senator Gronstal. YOU ROCK.

Please go give Sen. Gronstal some love here.

No weaseling here. I think it unlikely Iowa will roll back though some seem to be muttering about having constitutional convention to revise the Iowa constitution.

I wrote to him and thanked him.

Respected US State Senator,
Just a note from Mexico to support you in your opposition to altering the Iowa state constitution to embody discrimination. With the election of a new US president and the actions of strong state and local leadership we are praying that the USA can again be recognized as a leader to be respected as she offers liberty and equality to all her loyal citizens.
