Sioux City Christian Church Posts Web Commercial Equating Same-Sex Marriage with Incest

     The battle against gay rights in Iowa continues.  Anti-gay Christian church, Cornerstone World Outreach has a new commercial and an old lie.  This commercial misleads Iowans into believing that their supreme court has legalized incest.  

     What happened to "Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor"?  The folks at CWO are liars and hypocrites.  This slippery slope argument is ridiculous, but there will be people who actually believe this commercial.  Watch it below.

     A web video produced by a member of a controversial Sioux City church is arguing that because the Iowa Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage last year, the next logical step will be legalizing incest.
     Tim Hicks, who created and posted the video on YouTube, is a member of Cornerstone World Outreach in Sioux City. In fact, nearly half of the videos he’s posted on YouTube are of the church’s pastor, Cary Gordon. The church is facing a possible IRS investigation over its campaign to convince other pastors around the state to encourage their congregations to vote against retaining three state Supreme Court justices on the ballot this fall.
     Hick’s video, which is entitled “Vote no on judicial retention,” is a parody of commercials for the online dating website eHarmony. The narrator of the video says the Iowa Supreme Court is the authority on marriage, all while a married couple discusses how they’ve known each other their entire lives. By the end, it is revealed that the married couple are brother and sister, and they thank the Supreme Court for allowing their marriage to happen.
     In comments below the video, Hicks said he made it to reveal “the obvious next steps for liberal judges to take. What will they legalize next … polygamy, NAMBLA, a feller and his horse?”
