*700* pro-marriage Iowans rally in Des Moines: "Let us vote!"


From the Des Moines Register:

Chanting "Let us vote. Let us vote," about 500 [our friends on the ground say it was 700] supporters of a constitutional amendment to ban same-gender marriage rallied Tuesday at the Iowa Capitol.

The hourlong rally drew an enthusiastic crowd from throughout the state decked out in red shirts and jackets, the color used by LUV Iowa, a group backing the amendment. Some toted signs, such as "Man + Woman = Marriage" and "God is not a Liar." They shouted, "Amen," in agreement with the event's speakers.

... "What happens in Iowa, the rest of the nation watches," Roy Moore, former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court said.
