Don’t say we didn’t warn the straight people.
The theocrats spend a lot of time attacking the gays, but we’re the low-hanging fruit. For many, the biggest threat to marriage isn’t same-sex couples, it’s divorce. And, via Pam Spauding, one of the right-wingers leading the charge against divorce is none other than leading homophobe, Sally Kern. Yes, the Oklahoma State Rep. has introduced a bill that would ban some divorces in her state:
Scheduled for introduction in the 2010 legislative session by state Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City, House Bill 2279 would restrict the “use of incompatibility as a ground for divorce” in Oklahoma.
The bill would not allow for divorce on the basis of incompatibility 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
Rep. Sally Kern is doing what so many of her fellow theocrats want to do. And, we’ve warned our straight friends. They’re coming for your rights, too.
