    Angry Proponents of same sex marriage introduce ridiculous bill for heterosexual couples

    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.

    This is just further proof that these people aren't interested in anyone's "rights," they are simply interested in destroying marriage.

    It's a BS thing and that's the point. They're just saying that a lot of the people who would deny same sex marriage are doing it on the grounds that "they can't have children!" and they want to take that argument away. I don't have a problem with gays marrying. They should be allowed to be as miserable as the rest of us.

    Sorry sweety, congress never passes bills that would cause direct harm to itself or its members.
