Causing a Ruckus

Now this may make you laugh: A senator was arguing that bringing the issue of ammending the Constitution to ban gay marriage was nothing but a ploy to keep the nation and legislatures from actually debating issues of importance (like Iraq and the economy). The senator then, explaining that if legislatures really wanted to protect the institution of marriage, then it would be more concerned about what heterosexuals are already doing to damage said institution. He said,

"If we truly want to protect marriage, we should look and do all the things we must to go after the evils that threaten each and every one of our marriages," Rep Lincoln Davis (D-Tenn.) said. "These are the evils of divorce, adultery and abuse."

You go, Lincoln Davis! You tell them scapegoaters off and expose them for what they're doing.

As a result of what he said, Republicans are calling for an apology from him. They are scared he is going to draft a bill making divorce a felony. And if that happens, we'll have a legislature full of criminals. As if we don't already have a lot of them already.
