You GO, John! I love his attitude more most other celebrities around. About 20 year ago I spent New Year's in Washington DC and on New Year's day I could have met John Waters in Baltimore through some friends of friends who worked with him. I was far too hungover for the 30 mile trip and that is one of my life's regrets!
What a novel idea! How can our Christian holy friends object to making divorce illegal?

He's not the only one to suggest this. I believe someone was trying to get a proposition on the California ballot regarding this. If you are serious about "preserving marriage", then obviously divorce should be outlawed.

But not too many people are actually going to be in favor of doing so.

I've been saying that forever now. Whenever I ask one of the hate-mongers why they aren't working to outlaw divorce and wouldn't it make a LOT more sense to do THAT before worring about same-sex couples, I always get a stuttering, "But, but, but, but, but....."

In the words of Rita Rudner, "Sometimes they leave skid marks as they run for the door...."
