Church Lady and pist0l-packin’ Oklahoma state representative Sally Kern is introducing HB2279 for the 2010 session. The bill would strictly limit or deny (heterosexual) divorce on grounds of incompatibility. Sally loves sticking that christianist beak of hers into the private lives of citizens whom she deems less than human. You know, people of the “wrong religion” or no religion, and — even lower than terrorists — homos.
Channel 5 News in OKC has this poll shown on their website. An unbelievable 16% thinks it’s just fine for the State to dictate citizens’ personal relationships … and, I’m guessing that half of that 84% have no problem with the State dictating same-sex relationships. (A guess, based on the poll showing 47% think sexual orientation is a choice.)
The bill, if law, would prohibit divorce if:
- There are living minor children of the marriage
- The parties have been married 10 years or longer
- Either party files a written objection to the granting of a divorce
Do these people even think about the crap they say? The stupidity, the arrogance, of thinking you know every person’s situation, every child’s plight; thinking you can see and judge every nuance of people’s private relationships. People like Kern want to impose their Biblical Values™ on everyone (see:Sally Kern’s Proclamation of Morality). According to the Wiki, she’s a Baptist, but it doesn’t say which flavor. Maybe she’s getting her idea from the 2010 California Marriage Protection Act? (Some of these stupid fundies don’t even realize it’s a parody, a hoax.)
The fundies are comin’ after you – and you, and you, and … and they’d take it by force, if necessary. Very OT of them.
