Quote# 36701

I have always felt that divorce was too easy in the USA. What we need to do is change the law to outlaw divorce in the US. The next thing we must do is force people who are divorced out of public office and the church. We need to set an example in both places and anyone who has failed at marriage should not hold a leadership position in either.

Right, because nobody should be allowed to fail at anything.

marriage should be outlawed...what is the point?

3/25/2008 11:55:37 AM


Yeah, you go ahead and campaign for that. In fact, I would give you money to get started, for the sole reason that as soon as this level of fucktarded insanity is widely and publicly associated with fundamentalist Christianity, fundie influence in politics will die faster than Christ on a cross.

Hang on a second...aren't fundies more likely to get divorced than say atheists?

You know,,,, for someone who was supposedly not married, christ (and his followers) have an awful lot to say about marriage!

Hey Zeus

And anyone who fails in business should not hold a leadership position either, like say, President. You never know what might happen. They may end up getting the country trillions of dollars into debt, give tax cuts to the wrong people or just generally fuck things up for everyone. You know, hypothetically speaking of course, because no-one would ever vote them in anyway, so I think we are pretty safe there.

It's marriage that is too easy. If everyone who wanted to get married was required to successfully complete an extended training and counseling course with his/her intended, I'd wager that there would be fewer marriages between people too immature and selfish to make good spouses...and hence fewer divorces.

That will get rid of most fundies in politics. Waaaaay to go!

Mister Spak

We should outlaw fundies in positions of responsibility. We should set an example that those who run the real world should not live in an imaginary one.

You know, if you had your way there would have been no Reagan, right?

3/25/2008 12:38:01 PM


why do that? if divorces are illegal then my beautiful mother would have been DEAD!!... she was in such a abusive relationship that she had to run away when my father went overseas and then done the divorce papers... im proud of her to have a strong heart to take me and my sister away (i was 5 and my sister was 1) and find a better life for her and us. did you even think about the women and men that are in a abusive relationships like my mother had?? i didn't think so... so you and your idea of making divorces illegal can DIAF... you selfish prick...

3/25/2008 12:39:39 PM


Yeah. Because in America we punish people for honest mistakes. In America, we prevent people from correcting their mistakes and instead force them to suffer for the rest of their lives because of a single bad choice that we won't let them correct. Because that's what Jesus would do.

I see, so Ronald Reagan shouldn't have been president then?

3/25/2008 12:45:21 PM


Why, and to what effect?

What would you do to prevent divorce?

When you start interfering with personal relationships, you cross a line. What's next, you determining who can have children and who cannot?

Although marriage is taken too lightly these days by many, I don't see that there is anything you can do about it. Because along with those who take it too lightly there are those who finally have the freedom and ability to walk away from a rotten experience. No one needs to live unhappily ever after simply because they signed a marriage license.

Fundie? Maybe. Ignorant and arrogant, yes.

3/25/2008 12:50:25 PM


Yeah, good luck with that.

Well seeing how the bible belt has the highest divorce rate, we wouldn't have to deal with fundies in the Fed. Senate, Fed. Congress, State Senates, State Congresses, Mayors, Judges, or School Board positions.

Sounds great! Let's do it!!!

3/25/2008 1:06:27 PM


What if you don't belong to church?

3/25/2008 1:09:07 PM



3/25/2008 1:20:22 PM


Hmm, anyone else here read "Handmaid's Tale"? Outlawing divorce is how the government kidnapped children.

3/25/2008 1:21:53 PM


But if they stay married while beating their wife, they should be immediately offered a church position and be elected to public office.

I'd also like to add that marriage is the leading cause of divorce.

3/25/2008 1:32:11 PM

Yes, and let's do the same with all sort of sins.....................nope, it's not that good idea.

3/25/2008 2:18:32 PM


Won't pass thru senate.

3/25/2008 2:20:00 PM


This doesn't address the root of the problem: Heterosexual marriage.

Allowing us heterosexuals to marry is screwing everything up.

You, good sir, are an a-hole.

Divorce is too easy, I agree. But, fortunately, that is no-one's business but the people getting divorced! Not all people get divorced over trivial matters, and they usually did not "fail" at marriage; they just married someone who is abusive or who do they don't really love because of any variety of miscues that can happen (especially in a society that pressures you to marry a person before you even have sex...leaving you to find out that they are into S & M on your honeymoon...).
