The Bible Says <i>What??</i>

Jason forwarded me this great email that is in response to all the fuss being made over the same sex marriages going on in San Francisco right now. As for me, I think the over 50% divorce rate does more damage to the institution of marriage than some happy, commited gay couples. Me=loving happy married people. :-)

As certain politicians work diligently to prevent marriage between two
> people of the same sex, others of us have been busy drafting a
> Constitutional Amendment codifying all marriages entirely on biblical
> principles. After all, God wouldn't want us to pick and choose which
> of the Scriptures we elevate to civil law and which we choose to
> ignore:
> Draft of a Constitutional Amendment to Defend Biblical Marriage:
> 1) Marriage in the United States of America shall consist of a union
> between one man and one or more women. (Gen 29:17-28; II Sam 3:2-5.)
> 2) Marriage shall not impede a man's right to take concubines in
> addition to his wife or wives. (II Sam 5:13; I Kings 11:3; II Chron
> 11:21)
> 3) A marriage shall be considered valid only if the wife is a virgin.
> If the wife is not a virgin, she shall be executed. (Deut 22:13-21)
> 4) Marriage of a believer and a non-believer shall be forbidden. (Gen
> 24:3; Num 25:1-9; Ezra 9:12; Neh 10:30)
> 5) Since marriage is for life, neither the US Constitution nor any
> state law shall permit divorce. (Deut 22:19; Mark 10:9-12)
> 6) If a married man dies without children, his brother must marry the
> widow. If the brother refuses to marry the widow, or deliberately does
> not give her children, he shall pay a fine of one shoe and be
> otherwise punished in a manner to be determined by law. (Gen.
> 38:6-10; Deut 25:5-10)
> 7) In lieu of marriage (if there are no acceptable men to be found), a
> woman shall get her father drunk and have sex with him.(Gen 19:31-36)
> I hope this helps to clarify the finer details of the Government's
> righteous struggle against the infidels and heathens among us.
