Marriage Classique is subject to greater threats than those presented by gays tying the knot — divorce and adultery, to name two. Democratic Rep. Lincoln Davis says a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage won’t go far enough. Salon:
If the sanctity of marriage is to be preserved, Davis deadpanned, Congress should “outlaw divorce” and make adultery “a felony.” In addition, Davis said, “We should prevent those who commit adultery or get a divorce from running an office. Mr. Speaker, this House must lead by example. If we want those watching on C-SPAN to actually believe that we’re serious about protecting marriage, then we should go after the other major threats to the institution.”
At least 29 members of Congress are divorced.
