A Fun Idea

Based on this idea from somebody at Daily Kos: I figure that since the Mormons came to California and used their money and efforts to pass Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in the state, gay people should use their money and efforts to pass a Constitutional Amendment in Utah banning divorce.

Think about it: Get the Mormons to put their vote where their mouths are in order to enact a constitutional amendment about the sanctity marriage... but this time, make sure it actually effects Mormons personally.

Of course, if Mormons decide to vote against a Constitutional Amendment banning divorce in Utah, they'd be huge hypocrites, as they work to strengthen marriage in ways that only requires changes from other people, in other states, but not being willing to strengthen their own marriages in their home state.

I love the Catch. I love the 22. Oh: And no joke, I'd give such an Amendment a 50-50 chance of passing.
