Iowa State Senator Merlin Bartz is very nervous that the WRONG KIND OF TENT POLES are going to be erected in Iowa’s campgrounds:
Senator Merlin Bartz, a Republican from Grafton, says it appears to him that the Department of Natural Resources wants to make gay couples eligible for family camping at state parks. “They’re citing the Supreme Court case and changing, you know, ‘husband and wife’ language to ’spouse,’” Bartz says.
The rates or fees for camp sites are the same, whether you’re a family or a non-family, but the state allows families to put up more than one tent on a camp site. “They’re changing their language even though the state legislature has not had a debate on this particular issue,” Bartz says. […]
Bartz says he wants to be “vigilant” and keep state agencies from writing rules that extend new benefits to gay couples. “A lot of the advocates of gay marriage in Iowa have said, ‘It doesn’t affect anything. Nothing has changed,’” Bartz says. “The reality of it is that everything is changing.”
It appears that the only change would be that, if you allow gay couples to call themselves a “family”, they could pitch more than one tent and you know what that means.
Less S’mores for everyone.
Just kidding, it means gay orgy.
