Congressman Steve King: People Can Now Marry Lawnmowers!

source
Iowa has been a marriage equality state for well over six years now. Outside of a small handful of incidents, this has been an uneventful experience.

That didn't stop our Congressman, Rep. Steve King, from asserting that people can now marry lawnmowers:
The Supreme Court has ruled that they're not. Their ruling really says anybody can marry anybody -- and eventually it will be in any combination. I had a strong, Christian lawyer tell me yesterday (Tuesday, June 30) that, under this decision that he has read, what it brings about is: It only requires one human being in this relationship -- that you could marry your lawnmower with this decision. I think he's right.
King also anticipates legislation that will force all churches to officiate over same-sex marriage also.

Sounds as though King might need to find a new lawyer.

He doesn't really believe that, though. Of course he doesn't. I mean, he has to understand better than he lets on.
