Idea Would Require Couples to Have Kids

OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Proponents of same-sex marriage have introduced a ballot measure that would require heterosexual couples to have a child within three years or have their marriages annulled.

 

The Washington Defense of Marriage Alliance acknowledged on its Web site that the initiative was "absurd" but hoped the idea prompts "discussion about the many misguided assumptions" underlying a state Supreme Court ruling that upheld a ban on same-sex marriage.

 

The measure would require couples to prove they can have children to get a marriage license. Couples who do not have children within three years could have their marriages annulled.

 

All other marriages would be defined as "unrecognized," making those couples ineligible for marriage benefits.

 

The paperwork for the measure was submitted last month. Supporters must gather at least 224,800 signatures by July 6 to put it on the November ballot.

 

The group said the proposal was aimed at "social conservatives who have long screamed that marriage exists for the sole purpose of procreation."

 

Cheryl Haskins, executive director of Allies for Marriage and Children, said opponents of same-sex marriage want only to preserve marriage as the union of a man and a woman.

 

"Some of those unions produce children and some of them don't," she said.

"Geez. It's like we lost some sort of bet and ended up saddled with a bunch of terrible new posters on this forum."

...And any paraplegics too.

Actually, one can manually stimulate the prostate gland such that a quadraplegic can produce sea men (oh, come now). And if Murderball is any indication, at least some paraplegics are capable of having sex.

 

 

Ok, how about quadriplegics?

They're included in the statement above. Quadriplegics can't have sex, per se, but they can reproduce so long as they're not sterile. Paraplegics can actually have intercourse, if they have the sufficient strength to move themselves with their arms, and most are. They just have to get creative in their positioning.

Any law that promotes making babies for us North Americans has my support.

However this is, again, too extreme.

 

The only marriage I'm against is inter-familly marriages(brother/sister, son/mother, etc).

 

In that case I have some bad news ....son.

I'm in the boat with Purgie and laughing that the pro homosexual marraige groups decided that if they couldn't get married because they couldn't have kids, same should be said for hetero couples.

Acting stupid doesn't prove others' stupidity; it only proves your own stupidity.

 

In essence, this warrants a:
