The Polk County attorney's office says the brief is based on news accounts after a decision in a Massachusetts gay marriage case. The attorney's office says it's less of a legal brief and more hearsay and anecdotal remarks.
Camilla Taylor is Lambda Legal's lead attorney on the Iowa case.
She says the brief is relevant because it shows that gay couples have been marrying in Massachusetts for four years and "the sky hasn't fallen."
The opponents of marriage equality and GLBT equality in general have the responsibility to prove what they accuse. The fourth anniversary of "gay marriage" in Massachusetts is coming up in May, yet in all that time the opposition has not been able to find one single point they can prove where equality has been a detriment. It's time we make discrimination of all forms history.
