Karl Rove - Divorce Number 2

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

Karl Rove has been on the front lines in the fight to stop gay marriage:

Marriage is a very important part of our culture and our society. If we want to have a hopeful and decent society, we ought to aim for the ideal. And the ideal is that marriage ought to be and should be a union of a man and a woman. And we cannot allow activist judges to overturn that. We cannot allow activist local elected officials to thumb their nose at 5,000 years of human history and determine that marriage is something else.

Last week, Karl Rove got his second divorce. 

Here's my question - for how many of those "5,000 years of human history" has it been acceptable to be twice divorced?

The longstanding claim by conservatives has been that gay marriage would undermine (as homemade porn star/conservative icon Carrie Prejean said) "opposite" marriage.  That straight marriage is devalued by gay marriage. 

2 divorces from Rove.  Imagine how many he'd have if gays were undermining him?

"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." (Deutronomy 24:1)

This was proclaimed by Moses, in what has been dated back to around 1445 BC. No limit on the number of divorces allowed was ever mentioned (though there was also no limit to the number of marriages either, beyond the limit that the husband could support)

So I guess the answer to your question would be "about 3450 years"

Karl Rove's wife was unclean?

Ladies best be workin' on that.
