Protect Marriage in California – The 2010 California Marriage Protection ActDecember 1, 2009 at 6:09 pm | Posted in American politics | 1 Comment
Til death do us part? The vow would really hold true in California if a Sacramento Web designer gets his way.
In a movement that seems ripped from the pages of Comedy Channel writers, John Marcotte wants to put a measure on the ballot next year to ban divorce in California.
The 2010 California Marriage Protection Act is meant to be a satirical statement after California voters outlawed gay marriage in 2008, largely on the argument that a ban is needed to protect the sanctity of traditional marriage. If that’s the case, then Marcotte reasons voters should have no problem banning divorce.
“Since California has decided to protect traditional marriage, I think it would be hypocritical of us not to sacrifice some of our own rights to protect traditional marriage even more,” the 38-year-old married father of two said.
I would hope all who fought for Prop 8 would stand behind this. Nothing destroys marriage more than divorce. Nothing threatens families more than divorce. Surely the Church will ask its membership to fork over another $20 million for the support and passage of this bill that will protect marriage even more.
