Here is a thought…
If you are going to change the state constitution to restrict a certain minority class of people from enjoying the same rights as others simularily situated, then why not create a Constitutional Amendment forbidding the dissolution of marriage?
After all, the purported reasons for denying gays the right to marry their same-sex partners is to “preserve” the institution and sanctity of marriage, then let’s just go all the way. Let’s completely protect marriage by outlawing divorce.
Or, if you want to take it a step further, only allow marriage if the couple conceives a child within one year. If there is no child in that one year period, then the marriage is dissolved and neither can marry anyone ever again.
After all, isn’t the only purpose of marriage to reproduce offspring?
Marriage should only be between one man and one woman if they have children to raise. Once they have a child within the first year, then they are stuck with each other until death.
I am doing my part to protect marriage.
Here is another thought. Why not just do away with marriage altogether as a government-recognized union. It should be completely under the control of the Church. No government license, no government benefits, none of that. After all, isn’t it a religious union?
Once you have given marriage back to where it belongs — the church — then the government is free and clear to institute a civil union between two people of any race, creed, sex, religion. No longer tied to the religious a union between a man and a woman, or a man and a man or woman and woman can go on without the tired argument that God forbids it.
