Stupid Amendmentposted by The Vidiot @ 12:05 PM Permalink Honestly, if the American public can't see through the political ruse that is the Marriage Amendment, then they deserve the government they have.
My uncle had a pretty good thought about the whole thing:
It occurred to me this morning (around 5:30 am) that if Bush really believed in the holiness of marriage between a man and a woman, and that those marriages were the foundation of our country, he should go all the way and promote an amendment that would outlaw the one thing that's most destructive to marriage--Divorce. What's the divorce rate now? More than 50% I think. That means there would be twice as many marriages if divorce were outlawed, twice as much sanctity. Of course, the murder rate and abuse crimes would probably more than double too, but on the other hand, think of the money that would be saved in alimony, which could be used in other ways, would probably help the economy. Many lawyers would need new jobs. There would be no broken families. There would be none of those weddings where people have to worry about inviting former in-laws. And best of all, gays and lesbians would see so many people living in bad marriages that they won't want to get married any more.Ha.
I mourn for what could've been.
