A few weeks back, we noted that right-wing pastors in Iowa were mobilizing to oust three Supreme Court Justices who are up for retention because of the Court’s ruling in favor of same-sex marriage earlier this year.
The leaders at Cornerstone World Outreach in Sioux City have been very active in this effort, so much so that Americans United for the Separation of Church and State have already asked the IRS to investigate the church for violating election law.
Today, the Iowa Independent reports that one of Cornernstone’s members has posted a “parody” video claiming that the next step for the Iowa Supreme Court will be to legalize 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 maid it to reveal “the obvious next steps for liberal judges to take. What will they legalize next … polygamy, NAMBLA, a feller and his horse?”
