Protect Marriage: Prohibit Divorce

I first saw this on my friend Grace's blog:

In case you can't watch the video right now, the gist of it is to challenge "marriage defenders" to take their efforts to the next step and enact a ban that will affect their own behavior and lives- namely, by prohibiting divorce. The makers of this video used all of the language from the Yes on 8 site and replaced the term "same-sex marriage" with "divorce."

I encourage all "marriage defenders" to put their money where their mouths are and sign the petition. To any "marriage defenders" out there who don't support this petition, why not?

My guess is that many "marriage defenders" would rather pat themselves on the back for pointlessly checking a little box in a private voting booth that takes other people's rights away than they would sign a petition that actually affects their own lives in some way.
