Marriage Protection Act

Word has reached us here in the Village of an amendment to the United States Constitution called the Marriage Protection Amendment of 2008 (H.J. Res. 89).

Now without getting into the debate of the sanctity of marriage I will get into the debate of States Rights. Marriage is a state issue and not a federal one. The federal government has no business trying to regulate marriage or anything else that is a state and local responsibility. I believe, if my history is correct, we fought a war over this issue.

Perhaps we should amend this make divorce illegal! It seems to me that divorce is more destructive to families then two committed, loving, people marrying each other. Just my two cents.

If you wish to define marriage as between one man and one woman the place to do it is in the state in which you reside not in the Congress of the United States.


  1. Yah, we did a great job in this state, right…When the states can’t do their job, someone has to step in. As far as divorce, its another subject entirely. When its over its over. Marie

  2. The only way the Constitution can be amended is by the approval of the states, so I don’t think this is much to worry about.

    Here are the ways the constitutioncan be ammended.
    1. 3/4 of the states in a constitutional convention
    convention (never done this way)
    2. 3/4 of the state legislatures agee on an amendement (never done this way)
    3. 2/3 vote of each house of Congress and 2/3 of the state legislatures (the only way we haveever done it)
