Bill Repealing Adultery Officially Signed Into Law
CBS Denver ^ | 3/22/2013

Posted on 03/23/2013 8:19:12 AM PDT by markomalley

A proposal to repeal the crime of adultery from Colorado’s books has been signed into law.

The legislation that Gov. John Hickenlooper signed Friday removes what Democratic bill sponsors say is an outdated 19-century statute. The bill also would repeal the rarely-used law of contributing to “sexual immorality” by providing a place, such as a hotel room, for unmarried people to have sex.

So I wonder when Colifornia will have a law making heterosexual marriage illegal?

Satan is the head of the Democrat party. Libertarians want government out of marriage, but that viewpoint is flawed. One important function of government is to enforce contracts. And there is no more important contract than marriage.

Gays must be baffled. All this time they have thought that marriage and a marriage certificate were very important and meant something special. Official recognition of a special status and all. They fought so hard to be able to have that official recognized status.

Now they find out it doesn’t mean much at all.

Some guy in South Carolina won a half million dollar lawsuit against his former wife’s lover. Adultery is a crime in South Carolina, and the aggrieved spouse can seek civil redress as well, as in most states. The notion that a wife’s boyfriend can be taken to court for damages certainly seems archaic. Not wrong, just out of date.

As Howie Carr said, under Massachusetts law, if your wife commits adultery, you owe her half a million dollars. If you commit adultery, you owe her half a million dollars. Howie, who is twice married, knows where of he speaks.

Fornication is the norm here, and a plurality have engaged in sexual relationships before marriage.

Fornication is no less of a sin compared to faggotry.

“One important function of government is to enforce contracts. And there is no more important contract than marriage.”

Marriage is not a contract... contract assumes that you can terminate it. Marriage is a bond that cannot be terminated. I have no respect for those who have divorced — they have proven that they cannot be trusted.

Part of the marriage contracts reads, "Until death . . "

what if you are orthodox? there is no “til death” it is “and beyond”.

(they also allow for divorce - for cause)

You make a very good point. I wonder if people would choose their partners more responsibly and carefully if there were penalties for violating the marriage contract.

Haha. They don’t give a sh&t. The only reason they wanted to be “married” was to pi$$ off people who disapproved of their behavior, and to become accepted as ‘normal’.

Sadly, given the downward trend in marriage rates, they would probably just skip getting married at all.

Seduction is still a crime in California. But it probably hasn’t been used in decades. (I believe Frank Sinatra was arrested for it in New Jersey, not California)

Even when the laws were not very often enforced, they kept people honest to the extent that they committed adultery quietly and tried to keep it a secret from friends as well as spouses. So they didn’t set a bad public example for the youngsters to imitate.

Nowadays, it’s a free-for-all. On the whole, a bit of quiet, hypocritical sinning is better for society than open and boastful sinning. This will not encourage people in that state to behave better. It will not save any marriages or hold any families together. But, of course, Hickenlooper wouldn’t know the difference between good and evil if they bit him in the */.

“Part of the marriage contracts reads, “Until death . . “”

So, is that “contract” being enforced by any government?

In which state in the union does the government do ANYTHING to enforce this contract?

There’s a specific law in NC called Alienation of Affection that has been used successfully to sue the outside party that intruded into the fidelity of a subsequently broken marriage.

Trust me. If marriage was today held to the same standard it was held to at the foundation of our country, the homosexualists wouldn’t want anything to do with it. To paraphrase Reformed Christian pastor Douglas Wilson, the call for “same-sex marriages” comes at the end of the societal fall into perversion, not the beginning of it.

This article ois about adultery...

polygamy is adultery...

polygamy right now is against the law...

Its bigamy, adultery...

“Unlawful habitation”

get rid of the laws against adultery as CO has...

and voila...polygamy AKA bigamy is now OK and lawful...

and the Mormons and the Moslems are happy...

they came come out of the shadows...

of course its still is against God and His Word the Bible and the Ten Commandments...

But the Mormons and the Moslems dont care about what He has to say about sin...

They have their own gods and “bibles” that instruct them that adultery is OK..

Next question. Are your kids... really your kids?..
Have they been tested?... How many are? and how may aren’t?..

Does it make a difference who you are legally bound to?..
Or do the children belong to the State?..

If the State OWNS them, who cares...
Which as you rightfully surmised is what this is all about..
Or the fornication of political ideas..

What did this story have to do with Mormons and Moslems? You seem to be using slippery slope reasoning.

By the way, if laws against adultery wer ever enforced, well over half the country would be imprisoned.
