A web designer in California is seeking to have divorce banned in the state.
Sacramento, California (WiredPRNews.com) – A Sacramento web designer has begun a movement to have divorce banned in the state of California. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), John Marcotte’s efforts have begun following the implementation of a voter supported state ban on gay marriage in 2008.
Marcotte is quoted by the AP as stating of the initiative to get voters to support outlawing divorce in California, “Since California has decided to protect traditional marriage, I think it would be hypocritical of us not to sacrifice some of our own rights to protect traditional marriage even more.”
As noted in the report, Marcotte who operates the comedy website BadMouth.net, has received considerable support for his campaign from those who opposed Proposition 8, which was a measure to ban marriage between gay couples, as well as those who supported it.
