I got this great piece from moominmuppet's journal.

You can see the thread here, as well. This was forwarded to her from her dad.

The Presidential Prayer Team is currently urging us to pray for the President as he seeks wisdom on how to legally codify the definition of marriage. Pray that it will be according to biblical principles. With many forces insisting on variant definitions of marriage, pray that God's Word and His standards will be honored by our government.

Here, in support of the Prayer Team's admirable goals, is a proposed constitutional Amendment codifying marriage entirely on actual biblical principles:

Be it Resolved that Marriage in the United States shall:

A. Consist of a union between one man and one or more women. (1)

B. Not impede a man's right to take concubines in addition to his wife or wives. (2)

C. Be considered valid only if the wife is a virgin. If the wife is not a virgin, she shall be executed. (3)

D. Be forbidden between a believer and a nonbeliever. (4)

E. Be for life, and neither this Constitution nor the constitution of any State, nor any state or federal law, shall be construed to permit divorce. (5)

F. Require that 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 of one shoe and be otherwise punished in a manner to be determined by law. (6)

(1): Gen. 29, 17-28; II Sam. 3, 2-5.
(2): II Sam. 5:13; I Kings 11:3; II Chron 11:21
(3): Deut. 22, 13-21
(4): Gen 24:3; Num 25, 1-9; Ezra 9:12; Neh. 10:30
(5): Deut 22:19; Mark 10:9
(6): Gen. 38, 6-10; Deut 25, 5-10
