A ban on divorce in California? Well, sort of…
, a Sacramento Web designer, is poking holes — and fun — at the argument many of those against same-sex marriage use: We’re simply trying to protect the sanctity of traditional marriage.
Marcotte decided if folks in California are so passionate about marriage between a man and a woman, then forgoing the right to a divorce shouldn’t be a problem.
“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.
The AP reports Marcotte needs 694,354 signatures by March 22 to get his no-divorce-initiative on next year’s state ballot. Apparently, people are signing on not only because they disagree with California’s vote on gay marriage, but also because they seriously think banning divorce is a good idea.
Here’s a link to Marcotte’s site.
I particularly like the slogan on the t-shirts he’s selling: You said “Til death do us part.” You’re not dead yet.
