Politics Taking Andersen Literally
posted by February 4 at 11:10 AMon
The secretary of state has approved a proposed ballot measure that would require married couples to have children within 3 years of marriage.
In response to last year’s state Supreme Court ruling, Andersen v. King County, which upheld the state’s Defense of Marriage Act on the grounds that the state leigislature had the right to see marriage as nothing more than a tool for procreation, I-957 was filed by the reclaim-your-oppression-named Washington Defense of Marriage Alliance. The initiative needs 224,800 signatures by July to make the November ballot.
According to WA-DOMA: “This initiative is the first of three that WA-DOMA has planned for upcoming years. The other two would prohibit divorce or separation when a married couple has children together, and make having a child together the equivalent of marriage.”
p.s. to Don McDonough, looks like someone beat you to it, my angry gay brother.
