Iowa Republicans for Freedom supports individual liberty for same-sex couples seeking civil marriage recognition from our government. Religious organizations have, and should continue to have, the freedom to choose how they define marriage within their congregations, but we believe the government should not deny the freedom of civil marriage to any couple based on gender.
Iowa Republicans for Freedom is lead by former Iowa Senator Jeff Angelo. Angelo served in the Iowa Senate for 12 years, where he was lead sponsor on a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage in Iowa. In January 2011 at a public hearing on the Iowa House floor, Angelo announced his change of position and his active support of same-sex couples.
With over 130 members strong and counting, IRFF will provide a voice to Iowa Republicans who agree that civil marriage is a freedom that should not be denied to same-sex couples. All Republicans in Iowa who agree are invited to join IRFF.
