A story at Associated Content tells about a proposal made by a Gay Marriage group that would set strict guidelines on what a marriage is.  A novel approach, I think.

I like this idea of having absurd and ridiculous items on the old ballot. I mean after all George Bush was on it, right? How ridiculous and absurd can you get?

I think they're trying to use a bit of reductio ad absurdam in the "save marriage" debate.

Still, if the Fundies want to be absolutely dogmatic about the definition of a marriage, then I think about 5 million of them are going to need to get an annulment.  Is that done in a river?  Wash this man right out of my hair? Send him on downstream.

No, seriously, if marriage is going to be only for procreation, if procreation as a possibility is a requirement, they better put up by divorcing or shut up and acknowledge that marriage has never been just about procreation.

If you go to CNN.com there is a video about this.  Yes, the fellow with the petition admits it is ridiculous.  They're trying to use the courts own phraseology against them.  If marriage is about procreation, then mandate procreation.

My only worry would be...stranger things have happened.  What if something like this passes?  What a mess.

Exactly!  Put up or shut up.  We aren't allowed to marry because we CAN'T procreate?  Okay, then you aren't allowed to if you DON'T procreate.

Hmmmm? I wonder how this turd would flush for a couple of three timers like the wife and I. She had a hysterectomy just before we got married, and I had a vasectomy between my first and second marriage.

Sir,

Have you no respect for the Sanctity of Marriage?
