Real Marriage Protection

Posted By on Wed, Oct 14, 2009 at 5:22 PM

Move over Katherine Spaht and Tony Perkins, you’ve got nothing on John Marcotte. Spaht and Perkins, the dynamic duo of Louisiana’s Covenant Marriage Law, must be impressed with California’s John Marcotte, who is proposing the 2010 California Protection Act, which would make divorce illegal in California.

Here’s what Marcotte has to say about his proposal:

In 2009, California passed the “California Protection of Marriage Amendment,” or “Prop 8.” Proposition 8 bravely protected the institution of traditional marriage by making sure that gay people could not participate in it.

I loved Proposition 8, but felt it did not go far enough. So fresh from the office of our legal counsel, I present the 2010 California Protection of Marriage Act.

SECTION 1. Title. This act shall be known as the “2010 California Marriage Protection Act.”

SECTION 2. Section 7.6 is added to Article I of the California Constitution, to read:

No party to any marriage shall be restored to the state of an unmarried person during the lifetime of the other party unless the marriage is void or voidable, as set forth in Part 2 of Division 6 of the Family Code.

Is this the kind of legislation we need to save marriage in America?
