Now there is a movement, although be it a small one, to ban divorces in California. This tactic to save marriage is logical. The only thing that ends marriage, straight or gay, is divorce. By prohibiting divorce, the problem of "saving" marriage is solved. Then the argument against gay marriage should dissolve away. Yeah right, if it were only that simple.
Well, that might be wishful thinking but the resolution of banning divorce would truly solve the issue; however the truth is, this argument by gay marriage opponents is only a smoke screen. They really don't want to protect the institution of marriage, they are just using the issue to justify their bigotry. If the opponents really wanted to save marriage they would sign on to the idea of banning divorce. And now they have the chance to put their money where their mouths are.
A straight, married web designer from Sacramento California has started a Facebook petition to gather signatures in an effort to bring his initiative to the 2010 ballot. If he receives 694,354 valid signatures by March 22, 2010 then his proposed constitutional amendment will be put to a vote. To support the cause follow this link to Protect Marriage! Ban Divorce!
