The Great Divorce Ban of California

A ‘grass roots’ movement is under way in California to ban divorce. The author of the petition makes it clear that his motivation is a little grandstanding, what might seem to be a ’satirical attempt’ to ban divorce in revenge for ‘the right’ to ban gay marriage in California.

According to the initiating grass roots advocate John Marcotte: “People who supported Prop 8 weren’t trying to take rights away from gays, they just wanted to protect traditional marriage. That’s why I’m confident that they will support this initiative, even though this time it will be their rights that are diminished. To not support it would be hypocritical.”

Ah, there’s the rub! This is about hypocrisy and there is plenty to go around. Perhaps nobody is more hypocritical than a married person that proposes sanctity in marriage, a religious stand or supposition. In the United States, a marriage is really a legal contract and little more. The idea of sanctity has been lost for most, a mere excuse for those in love. This secular nation is hopelessly jaded. Right?

Proposition 8 denies marriage between people of the same sex. Now proponents of this new movement want to add ban on divorce. The argument is that since California voters want to protect the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman, then that sanctity should become legal concrete. Who is to argue with them? According to the foundations of marriage, that is the grand design, a foundation of everlasting love and commitment. Today, we scoff at such things. Still, a solemn vow is a solemn vow. Right? What is good for the goose is good for the gander. The battleground between the sexes continues, even when it involves the same sex.

Rick Warren and Family Values?

an observation by E. Manning, senior writer, family rights advocate and retired economist.

Pastor Warren treads moral water

Pastor Warren treads moral water

Pastor Rick Warren questioned each electoral candidate for an hour recently and failed to mention family breakdown and divorce. If there is any moral or religious issue for America, it is the breakdown of the family and the promotion of that breakdown by political forces. Many millions of children are being separated from a parent that they love and need, usually for entirely selfish purposes on the part of at least one parent.

Amoral policy and the right

Amoral policy and the religious right?


This concern isn’t about father’s rights, the rights of children or the rights of a mother to choose anything. The concern is about the supposed sanctity of the family by religious leaders in an election year during a period of great contention. As a rising star among prominent religious leaders, Rick Warren failed to make the family an election topic.
