Kim Reynolds on Civil Rights

 

 


Same-sex marriage issue is now settled law

Reynolds says the issue of same-sex marriage is settled and she isn't obligated to abide by proposals in her state party's platform that favor limiting marriage to one man and one woman, as 1,800 delegates to the Republican Party of Iowa's state convention gather. The convention's proposed platform includes two planks in opposition to same-sex marriage:
  1. "We believe that traditional two parent (one male and one female), marriage-based families are the foundation to a stable, enduring, and healthy civilization. Therefore, public policy must always be pro-family in nature, encouraging marital and family commitment, and support of the parental rights and responsibilities."
  2. "We encourage the repeal of any laws allowing marriage that is not between one natural man and one natural woman."
Reynolds told reporters that the Republican Party's platform is a grassroots document that the state's Republicans work on, but it is not something that every candidate has to abide by.

Voters should decide gay marriage, not the courts

On gay marriage, Reynolds said Iowa voters, not the state's Supreme Court, should make the decision about its legality in the Hawkeye State. How has gay marriage hurt Iowa so far? How have homosexuals who are married hurt this state? What are they doing to Iowa that's troubling to Reynolds?

"I believe that the definition of marriage is between one man and one woman from a religious aspect," Reynolds said. "That is my belief. I have stated that. I always have believed that."

That considered, Reynolds said she would be open to the idea of civil unions for gay couples. "We could take a look at civil unions," Reynolds said. "There are other options maybe that I would be in favor of looking at." She added, "They can do civil unions. I think they can get to some of the same place that they want to look at."
