Prohibit divorces. All of them. Keep heterosexual couples from breaking the bonds of holy matrimony.
After all – the sanctity of marriage and the children were at the heart of Prop 8, right?
A petition over at the Petition Site already has seven thousand some signatures, folks who signed their names to a letter proposing that divorce be stricken from the books to “keep the interests of
children and families intact.”
The marriage of a man and a woman has been at the
heart of society since the beginning of time and it promotes the ideal
opportunity for children to be raised by a mother and a father in a
family held together by the legal, communal, and spiritual bonds of
marriage. As a society we should put the best interests of children
first, and those interests lie in traditional marriage. Permitting
divorce destroys marriage as we know it and causes a profound harm to
society. We should be restoring marriage, not undermining it.
Starting to sound familiar? Take out the word “divorce” and slip in “gay marriage.”
Yup, they stole the whole thing from the Prop 8 folks over at ProtectMarriage.com; you know, the folks who warned Californians that “schools will now be required to teach students that gay marriage is the
same as traditional marriage, starting with kindergarteners.” (sic)
I’d love to say they won’t be able to weasel out of their own words, but as the masters of twisting things to send people running scared of “the gay,” I’m betting the evangelicals will have a field day with this one too. Only this time, the joke truly is on them.
