Banning Divorce Picks Up Steam. Seriously
John Marcotte lasr fall launched RescueMarriage.org because he "felt
strongly that Prop 8 did not go far enough in protecting traditional
Before you ask, yes, Marcotte's tongue was firmly planted in his cheek.
But the joke's on all Californians now.
John Marcotte is a firm believer in traditional family values. He currently opposes government-funded death panels, Obama talking to children and MSNBC's entire prime-time line-up.
All that was missing was, "He subscribes to the Orange County Register."

(Secret note between Clockwork and Tiger Woods: Dude, you gotta move back to Cali, establish legal residence and contribute to this measure.)
Hmmm, wonder who might be pissed off enough over Prop 8 to sign Marcotte's petitions?
On RescueMarriage.org, you can donate, become a fan of the initative on Facebook, buy a t-shirt, view their PSA or just leave a comment like these recent contributions:
"I don't live in California, but you have my support. Great way to make a point about the hypocrisy of prop 8."
"Where do I send my money? I hope the Catholic Church, the Mormon Church, and all other evangelicas support this initiative/proposition."
"It needs to be taken seriously to seriously get on the ballot. Let's see those divorce-riddled hypocrites who voted against prop 8 vote in favor of this one."
"Wish I lived in CA! Joke or not, it's brilliant!"
Among those damning the proposed law outlawing divorce was a Ken Lowery, who wrote, "This is immature. Is this some 6th grader's idea?"
"So was Prop 8," replied DD.
