‘Protector of traditional marriage’ divorcing

Man who organized Prop 8 to protect the "sanctity of marriage” is divorcing his wife of almost 44 years.

In July 2008, hotelier and developer Doug Manchester donated $125,000 to help gather signatures for a proposition that would ban same-sex marriage in California. The early money was crucial to getting the initiative—which ultimately passed—on the ballot. At the time, he told The New York Times that he made the donation because of “my Catholic faith and longtime affiliation with the Catholic Church,” which preferred that marriage remain between a man and a woman. Indeed, the Catholic Church has vehemently opposed gay marriage. Then again, it’s also not too keen on divorce.
LOL. In fact, it pretty much seems to be against just about everything the gpukes have been up to these past few years.
