Jesus still loves you if you get divorced — just not as much as before.
Inspired by California’s voter-approved ban on gay marriage last year, satirist and commentator John Marcotte has taken the first steps in the initiative process to qualify the 2010 California Marriage Protection Act for a statewide vote sometime next year.
“It’s actually what I think is a logical extension of Prop 8, which was the California Marriage Protection Act. [My initiative] would protect traditional marriages by banning divorce,” he explained.
Marcotte submitted the proposed title and summary to the California Attorney General and claims that a volunteer network is standing by to collect petition signatures once the language is formally approved.
On his website, Marcotte describes himself as “a firm believer in traditional family values” who “currently opposes gay marriage, Obama talking to children and MSNBC’s entire prime-time line-up.”
