Step off, old man!

Thou shalt not...
I know some religious types are very upset about gay marriage because the number of "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve" signs I see on TV are going through the roof. (By the way, can't you folks come up with a new slogan? That one is so Anita Bryant.)

OK, let's make the Bible the basis for this constitutional amendment. Here are a few guidelines from the Good Book:

I. Marriage shall consist of a union between one man and one or more women. (Gen. 29:17-28; II Sam 3:2-5)

II. 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)

III. 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)

IV. Marriage of a believer and a non-believer shall be forbidden. (Gen 24:3; Num 25:1-9; Ezra 9:12; Neh
10:30)

V. Since marriage is for life, no law shall be construed to permit divorce. (Deut 22:19; Mark 10:9)

VI. If a married man dies without children, his brother shall marry the widow. If he refuses to marry his brother's widow or deliberately does not give her children, he shall pay a fine and be otherwise punished in a manner to be determined by law. (Gen. 38:6-10; Deut 25:5-10)

There's also some great stuff in there about adultery but I'm guessing the politicians won't be rushing to include that in this amendment.

My bad. I apologize. I just cut and paste it from somewhere else. I try to give attribution but didn't this time.

Thanks and I have to say your e-mail made me laugh.
