Ban Christian Divorces

Jesus' General has a new post about where the Talibangelists should be concentrating their efforts: a Constitutional amendment to ban Christian divorce. After all, if they can ban gay marriage even though Jesus never preached against it, they should be more than willing to ban those things that Jesus DID preach against - like divorce. And usury. And revenge. And murder. And hate.

    It would be near impossibility to translate this idea into the understanding of the right-wing Christian's mind set.

    Do a search CARE2; this is a petition site and their are petitions already started to ban divorce. This might help. Also, each state has a minimum number of signatures to place an amendment on the ballot. I live in Arizona and AZ requires 233,000 for a ballot amendment and 153,000 for statutory law. I am interested in doing this and if we can do the same in all 50 - Oh Joy!

    So homophobic remarried Christian couples get the choice of being married to their ex or not at all... because the government says so. I love it!

    I think we should ban all forms of contraception,get it out of the hands of married couples,after all sexual contacts are only for procreation.Then watch all those who want to ban other peoples enjoyment scream about their privacy rights.

    Let's not forget, if we're going all Biblical, there is a ban on lying. The old, "no false witness" thing, whether under oath or not, This could result in a de facto ban on adultery, 'cuz we know that if you can't lie, you can't "lie" with someone who's not your spouse. Or even get to "know" someone who's not your spouse, in that fun Biblical way, that is.

    But hey, we don't want the government legislating virtue or morality, when you get right down to it. Heaven forbid we allow those political moralists any leeway to enact any more laws they don't know how to keep. They break too many on a daily basis after all...enforcing those "Ten Suggestions" would be impossible.

    I'd vote for that in a heartbeat.

    I think the point is a good one to raise but I wouldn't ever vote to smite, to use a Biblical term, those who smite me. It's why the world is in the mess it's in. Sure, it's a clever point - I've seen many similarly clever points raised in relation to Leviticus, and the pick-and-mix approach of the religious hypocrites to all that stuff - but I think the way forward is to remain proud, to know you have support across the world from people in my country, Britain, and certainly the rest of the EU, and to fight while showing you can display the respect and courtesy that your enemies are incapable of.

    Jesus' followers tend, I find, in the sad majority, to display far less of the Christ than many non-Christians on the street. x
