Perhaps the stupidest reason to ban gay marriage ever:

U.S. Rep. Jim Nussle, the Republican candidate for governor, said today that amending the Iowa Constitution to include a ban on gay marriage would contribute to the state's quality of life.

Spelling out in the Constitution that marriage is between a man and a woman "demonstrates what kind of quality of life we have in Iowa and I think that’s a selling point Iowa ought to use," said Nussle on a taping of "Iowa Press."

Contribute to the state's "quality of life"? That's an even more empty and ridiculous catchphrase than "protecting the sanctity of marriage".
