Sanctity of Marriage
John Marcotte is going to take Californian voters at their word. Because they voted for Prop 8, which banned gay marriage, in order to protect marriage, he is working on pushing them to their logical conclusion. He is currently collection signatures for the "California Protection of Marriage Act." If passed it would make divorce illegal in the State of California. Married couples could however seek an annulment. While done more tongue in cheek, it is gaining momentum, although they need 700,000 signatures. But he does address the sheer hypocrisy of the anti-gay marriage movement, which has nothing to do with protecting the sanctity of marriage. Of those I know who are separated or getting a divorce in Massachusetts not one of them is because gays can marry. And as long as the divorce rate remains at 50% the actions are not doing anything to protect marriage. So, if you live in California please sign the ballot initiative so we can protect marriage.
