A threat to the very fabric of our society?

Today, I realized that there is a somewhat new social trend that I fear will only become more prevalent as time goes by. Maybe it’s come up in the news, and I just missed it, but I haven’t seen religious leaders, pundits from FoxNews, or Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy. Where is the public outcry?

What I am I talking about? Well, just this week, I heard about another lesbian couple I know who are getting a divorce. This is far from the first that I’ve heard of such a thing, and someone has to speak out! Don’t these perverts know that God ordained divorce between one man and one woman? If we allow same-sex couples to get divorces, what comes next? Will people be divorcing their pets? Will we see polygamists divorcing their wives en masse rather than one at a time? Why, we might have to teach children that it’s okay for a little boy to have two mommies that don’t even live together!

When will we see a brave leader for decency stand up and decry this insidious trend?

8/10 would read again.

On second thought, your statement is factually incorrect. The bible does not condone divorce in the slightest.

2/10 would not recommend.

Au contraire, mon frère

Deuteronomy 24:1 – When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.

My emphasis on the gendered pronouns, of course. (Also, in Jeremiah 3:8, God divorces the nation of Israel, so make of that what you will.)

Oh, and if you want some New Testament quotes, I could supply them, but I’m afraid you won’t find those referring to homosexuals, either.

Alright then, comment noted. Your complaint will get a response in about 2-3 weeks.

Seriously though, I’m not following…

Finally, someone with the bravery to cry out against this truly horrifying trend! I applaud you, good sir, for speaking out on an issue that is just so vile it hurts to think about! Same-sex divorce is the work of Satan and it is refreshing to see that someone else has joined me in protest!

Man, my rage is just building from this. I need some sopor or I might lose it.

Not in my America! To remedy this heathenism, we must pass a constitutional amendment that prevents same sex couples from divorcing! It’s the only way!

Say, has anyone asked Romney what his position is on this very timely matter? I mean, it’s pretty easy to guess what that socialist Muslim president of ours thinks about this. Why, he’ll probably make it mandatory for for anyone wanting health care to get at least one same-sex divorce or he sends you to the death panels!

It’s probably part of his scheme to take away our guns! Think about it: who ever heard of a same-sex shotgun wedding? Or did I just blow your mind?

You did not blow my mind, and I’m a bit confused on what you’re trying to say. Are you having an aneurysm? Should I call 911?

Amen Brucker. With everyone divorcing left and right it’s only a matter of time before the terrorists invade and take away our constitutional rights!

This atrocious blight in our society would never have happened in Obama took the office! It’s all Obama’s fault because he didn’t supply his birth certificate and because of that, the country has been handed over to the devil. Everyone knows that Birth certificates ward of the devil.

It’s a good thing Santorum has his birth certificate. It’s about time we got that man into the office. He sure sounds like he has his priorities right because if there is one thing this country needs: It’s less sex for everyone.

Well, I believe that if two homosexuals want a divorce, they should have that right. We shouldn’t discriminate on an individuals’ freedom of divorce on the basis of sexual orientation. Everyone should have the right to possessions their estranged partner paid for and less time spent with offspring, regardless of sexual orientation.

There is only one cure for this:

We must get on our knees and worship Jesus Christ and accept that gays and lesbians can too have dysfunctional zombie marriages through daily prayer, self-flagellation, and eating Chik-Fil-A every day!

Well, I have no idea what you’re referring to, but I sure wouldn’t want to see you disappointed, so…

Wow, you’re a real, true-blue, honest-to-God, freedom-loving, gun-totin’, hippie-killing, defender of the American way!
(Though the realization of that you have never played this gift from God makes me want to shoot something.)

Wow, nobody’s ever called me a “gun-totin’, hippie-killing, defender of the American way!” I’m gettin’ all choked up here… Time for manly tears:

Thread should be moved to JFF.

Sep 22, 2012 at 12:41PM EDT

I’m a tad confused. Is this supposed to be a serious thread?

Sep 22, 2012 at 12:52PM EDT

I don’t think it is.

Sep 22, 2012 at 12:53PM EDT

I am totally feeling you Brucker. Earlier this week my Biology teacher wanted to tell me about Darwin. I called him a facist basterd in front of everyone. Hoping to get a standing ovatian like my faith should, people were saying I was crazy. What the fuck?!?! I walked out of that class, I’m never returning to that again. At least I won’t burn in hell like those people who stayed.

Reminds me of a few months before that. Some stereotypical gay was walking across the street. I made him trip and laughed at his misery. Someone else got down to help him up. Someone helping a homo like that made me so angry, I went up to that person and kicked him in the face. The only time when a man must go down for another man is when he’s going down on his knees with a bible in his hand so he can pray to Jesus.

Is this the fate our country has come to? Do you really think our founding fathers wanted it this way?

’MURICA!

Thread is obviously intended to parody American right wing religious fundamentalism.

Should be moved back to JFF.

Sep 22, 2012 at 03:05PM EDT

You know that line, guys? Yeah, that one. You’ve crossed it.

You crossed the border line between General and JFF into JFF.

Guys, no offense, but how do so many of you not realize the joke in this thread?

Also, Brucker and RandomMan’s most recent posts crossed the line. I agree with American Tanker and Quantum Meme, this should be moved to Just For Fun.

I can see right through your filthy Satanic European lies, RandomMan. All of Europe is condemned to Hell for Hitler’s crimes and its disgusting multicultural society!

If you’re going to post pictures, Exudes, at least make them realistic. Reagan wouldn’t use an RPG-7, that’s a Soviet weapon. Keep your evil hidden Commie propaganda with your treacherous red Comrades!

Really, though… I was trying to make a semi-serious statement via satire.

With the OP that is, not the Flaming Carrot picture. Carry on, people.

Slow clap
Very clever. For a moment I thought you were serious. But then I realized you are just trolling, yet very artistically. My sincere compliments to your creativity! I like overall the “divorcing their pets” part. That’s a touch of class.
Said that…

CAN ANYMOD CLOSE THIS THREAD PLEASE?? THANKS!

I have one comment on the status of homosexuality in America today.
