Prop. 8 Didn't Go Far Enough



Yes that's correct.  The proposition banning same sex marriage in California was too soft.  It needs to be tightened up a bit.  After all, marriage is on the ropes here!  I mean the whole point of it was to protect marriage and children by keeping those uppity homos from gaying it all up.  I mean do you want weddings that look like this?



Or this abomination of Jesus' idea of a perfect marriage?



There's so much wrong with this one, I don't even know where to start...



With all this in mind, deciding who can get married is just the first phase.  Keeping it traditional and Jesus-ey is the next logical step.  Which is why I am now a supporter of the 2010 California Marriage Protection Act, which states:

SECTION 1. Title. This act shall be known as the “2010 California Marriage Protection Act.”

SECTION 2. Section 7.6 is added to Article I of the California Constitution, to read:
"No party to any marriage shall be restored to the state of an unmarried person during the lifetime of the other party unless the marriage is void or voidable, as set forth in Part 2 of Division 6 of the Family Code."

In other words, ban divorce.  That's right, ban it.  The two biggest threats to marriage are divorce and boys kissing.  So once you're married, you're married, for life.  After all, that's what it's supposed to be about, "til death do us part" and all that.  Well as the slogan says, "you're not dead yet".  If you voted for Prop. 8, you have to go to the next level or you'd be a hypocrite, and I don't think you'll find too many of those in church.  This is a real initiative that has been filed with the state for inclusion on the ballot pending getting enough signatures. 

After all if you could think "straight" enough to get married in the first place you should have been smart enough to realize it's forever, no matter how much you can't stand each other.  (I'm talking to you Jon and Kate!)  It's about time someone put this on the ballot because I can't sleep at night worrying about other people's marriages and wishing I could have something to say about them.  Now all I have to do is move back to California.

Oh that is PERFECT! Ban divorce!

I wonder how many people would actually get married if they knew it was really "till death do us part"?
