No, John is not a religious zealot (although he has 12 years of Catholic education), instead he's launched this initiative to mock the proponents of Proposition 8, which added "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California," to the state's constitution. He told CNN this Act is the the "logical extension of Proposition 8."
Marcotte's Website satirizes the traditional marriage campaigns with lines like:
You said "Til death do us part." You're not dead yet.
Jesus still loves you if you get divorced -- just not as much as before
"The opposition will always be there. The secular progressives, gays and MSNBC hosts -- but we beat them once with Prop 8 and we'll beat them again. If people are thinking about getting a divorce, just remember 'Hell is eternal, just like your marriage was supposed to be.'"
Obamacare is not a blueprint for socialism. You're thinking of the New Testament. ~~ John Fugelsang
That's an interesting angle. If Californians REALLY want to protect marriage, this is the way to do it, not by banning gay marriage. Somehow I doubt CA's will actually step up to protect marriage though. It was never about protecting marriage. It was always about hating gays, because GOD hates f.ags.
why not nip it in the bud and just ban marriage altogether. then everyone would be equal. the divorce rate would plummet.
I like being married, though.
