"I am not saying everyone has to be Christian; this is not a homogenous nation. What you have to be is someone who believes in a Judeo-Christian ethic, in other words, in knowing there's a right and wrong. Not all lifestyles are equal; not all religions are equal...My Lord made it very clear to me that I'm a cultural warrior for Judeo-Christian values." -- The wisdom of Oklahomobigot, illegal pistol-packing legislator Sally Kern
Tee-hee. Of course she was referring to the HO-MO-SEXUALS in the above quote a few months ago, but as those of us who follow the radical hate agenda of the religious right on regular basis know, the fringe bigots have no problem going after divorce bans as well. And when I was pointed to this article by Blender Christopher G., it was no surprise that Oklahoma state legislator Sally Kern would be leading the charge in her state.
Scheduled for introduction in the 2010 legislative session by state Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City, House Bill 2279 would restrict the "use of incompatibility as a ground for divorce" in Oklahoma.
The bill would not allow for divorce on the basis of incompatibility if:
* There are living minor children of the marriage
* The parties have been married 10 years or longer
* Either party files a written objection to the granting of a divorce
Note that the KOCO poll shows overwhelming disapproval for the bill -- gee, do you think you'd see this level of disapproval (87%) for meddling with the rights of gay folks? Hmmmmm...NO.
The queen of queer-bashing, whose constituents in OKC apparently have all their needs met by Kern, remarked:
"Something is wrong when you can get out of a marriage easier than a loan for a car."
She might want to take a gander at the state's economy and whether her constituents can actually get a loan for a car. Sally is benevolent though -- a divorce is ok if abuse or adultery are present.
