No Room For Mothers or Fathers in Iowa?

It used to be a political joke: "Opposing (fill in the blank) would be like opposing motherhood!" but I guess it's not a joke any longer.

Today the Associated Press has a story about the legalization of counterfeit "marriage" in Iowa, and its predictable consequences:

"Public health officials are reworking paperwork to give couples options beyond the tradition "bride" and "groom." Agency spokeswoman Polly Carver-Kimm said officials are considering other changes, including the designations of "mother" and "father" on birth certificates."

Sure. Once you've let equality and non-discrimination become your ordering principles, you've got to get rid of "bride" and "groom", "Mother" and "Father."

It's "equality" at the expense of sanity.
