Never heard of it? Well, I'm introducing it today. Proposition 9: A ban to prevent military personnel from marrying. The ban extends not only to same-sex marriages within the military but also to traditional marriages. In other words, no marriage. Period.
Why? Let me tell you.
The Associated Press reported today that "[t]he divorce rate among soldiers and Marines increased last year as military marriages suffered continuing stress from America's two wars." It is estimated that there were over 13,000 failed marriages among active duty military men and women in the last year.
I'm not against equality or anything. I don't hate the military. I just don't think that people who choose that lifestyle should be able to marry like the rest of us do. I mean, look how they're undermining and destroying the sanctity of marriage, look at how many of them choose to "cut and run" when things get difficult.
I value the ideals of traditional marriage and don't think that military men and women should have the right to demolish our most precious of Godly institutions.
Vote YES on Proposition 9.
