Okla. lawmaker suggests eliminating all marriages to prevent gay marriages

Saturday, January 25, 2014

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — An Oklahoma lawmaker, fearful that a federal judge’s ruling that struck down the state’s ban on same-sex marriage might be upheld by an appeals court, says his conservative colleagues would consider throwing out all marriages in Oklahoma as a way around the ruling.

The idea stems from a shell bill filed last week by Rep. Mike Turner (R-Edmond), reports KWTV.

The shell bill currently contains no substantial language, but can be changed at almost any time to react to upcoming rulings on Oklahoma’s same-sex marriage ban.

Turner says it’s an attempt to keep same-sex marriage illegal in Oklahoma while satisfying the U.S. Constitution. Critics are calling it a political stunt while supporters say it’s what Oklahomans want.

“[My constituents are] willing to have that discussion about whether marriage needs to be regulated by the state at all,” Turner said.

KWTV has more:

Turner has also introduced a bill that would call for a second vote to amend the Oklahoma Constitution to again ban same-sex marriage.

  75. Apparently people don’t learn from their past or have any type of common sense. Taking all types of marriage away 1) Doesn’t help anybody!! In fact it hurts everybody. 2) Makes the people who did it look like complete idiots. 3) Gets everybody fighting towards a common enemy (in this case, everybody would be fighting for all types of marriage- including same-sex marriage). It makes the situation worse. Remember prohibition??

I don’t understand why people always have to worry about people’s lives and who they are if 2 people want to get married then they should get married, he shouldn’t worry about other peoples lives, but worry about his own, it’s not like he knows these people or know how they live their lives so, he should really stfu and go do something better with his life than being a hater

  216. Truthfully, I want to say I don’t agree with banning marriage completely, however I don’t feel it equal to simply allow one form of marriage and not the other. I think this could potentially show people how it feels to prosecute minorities just because it may seem contrary to his or her definition of morality and marriage. If we can’t marry, then neither should you.

  226. I have been in a committed relationship with the same guy for almost 13 years. We are not religious, we have no desire to get married, and I do not believe we deserve a tax break because of our relationship. Get rid of marriage altogether. That would be fine with me. As long as it was equal for all couples.

  228. I agree… Not because I’m against gay marriage. But because the government has no place “recognizing” or “refusing to recognize” anyone’s family. Your marriage should be between you and your particular religious institution of choice. The bureaucrats can stay the hell out of it.

    Posted on Sunday, January 26, 2014 at 12:21am
  240. I agree…eliminate ALL marriage. It’s the fairest of all answers. No more alimony, no more palimony, no more 50/50 division of assets, no muss, no fuss. Just walk out the door. Pay reasonable child support and forget it.

Marriage is a religious and spiritual act and I’m in support of gay marriage but honestly why the fuck the government need to know that. He saying this out bigotry but his solutions is right. We wouldn’t even have this problem if marriage wasn’t given absurd importance. Once the government is withdrawn from the whole marriage equation people are gonna be more accepting of many different forms if commitment and love as long if it consensual and non-abusive.
