State residents launch massive effort to kick out 3 Supreme Court justicesPosted: October 24, 2010 7:01 pm Eastern

Judicial elections across the United States, largely ho-hum affairs that only stand out when members of the black robes commit a crime, have turned white-hot in Iowa, where residents are organizing and campaigning to fire three of the state Supreme Court members who created same-sex marriage for the state.
Supporters of the judges â€“ Marsha Ternus and Justices David Baker and Michael Streit â€“ are countering with arguments that Iowans who want the three removed from office have abandoned the rule of law and become "the mob."
But former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, who was removed from office himself when state officials refused to allow him to challenge an order he considered illegal, said the judges in Iowa didn't even follow their own state law â€“ which defined marriage as between a man and a woman. Instead, Moore said, they joined advocates for homosexuality in calling such couples "similarly situated" to traditionally married couples.

That view is accurate, said Moore, who runs the Foundation for Moral Law, only if one cannot tell the difference between a man and a woman.
The justices' stance, he suggested, is why polls show they could be ejected from their highly paid positions of influence, even though they usually are the benefactors of approval from 80 percent or 90 percent of the voters.
Several polls show that support for the three is running only percentage points above the portion of the citizenry already committed to voting them out. Several polls suggested the small percentage of undecideds probably ultimately will be the deciding factor.
In Iowa, the Supreme Court created same-sex "marriage" in a lawsuit brought by homosexual couples, determining that they had the same "right" to marry as traditional married couples.
