Introducing Proposition 9

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.

I have to wonder what the Good Reverend thinks of this proposition.

He supports it, of course. In fact, right after I published this post last night, I wished that I had let Rev. Todd pen it.

I think that you should also include high stress jobs such as police officers and firefighters where infidelity and divorce is very high.

These professions strain the sanctity of marriage as well.

Well, you know, life is stressful. Perhaps we should ban all marriages. That would infinitely protect its sanctity.

You know whose life isn't stressful? Paris Hilton's. So I hereby propose Prop 10, an amendment to Props 8 and 9: only Paris Hilton and that tattooed boyfriend of hers, you know the brother of that other guy whose Nicole Richie's baby daddy? Yeah, well only they can get married.

I would like to propose a change to Amendment X before it passes::

All television shows will be canceled. To replace all shows, the American people will see only the daily lives of Paris HIlton and who ever she marries. The only exception to the main reality show would be My BFF Paris Hilton and it shall go unnamed as to which Situationer watches it....

But just think of the marketing: The Disney Channel and the networks could play the G Rated version. HBO, PG-13. Showtime R. CInemax, NC-17.

The HIstory Channel could examine the life of Paris Hilton, her trials and tribulations. The Discover Channel could be an ethnographic study of her social interactions. The Science Channel, well that would be off the air. But MTV could play her music.

Watched, buddy. It's over now. And didn't you know? MTV isn't in the music business anymore.

Strong refutation. You are indeed wise....
