Draft of a Constitutional Amendment to Defend Biblical Marriage:  
Apparently this is going around in emails, and it was too good not to share:

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:

* 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.)

* Marriage shall not impede a man's right to take concubines in addition to his wife (II Sam5:13; I Kings 11:3; II Chron 11:21)

* 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)

* Marriage of a believer and a non-believer shall be forbidden. (Gen 24:3; Num 25:1-9; Ezra 9:12; Neh 10:30, 2Cor 6:14)

* Since marriage is for life, neither the US Constitution nor any state law shall permit divorce. (Deut 22:19; Mark 10:9-12)

* 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)

* 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.

You know what's irritating?

A) The New Testament was supposed to replace the Old. The whole idea was that the sacrifice of Jesus created a new covenant with God.

B) Jesus never even talked about homosexuality. All the New Testament discussion of homosexuality was in Paul's epistles. Paul, by the way, was a man who drastically changed the purpose and timbre of the church after the death of Jesus. Don't you think Jesus would've warned his apostles about him?

So, yeah. Not only are the "fundies" completely misinterpreting Jesus, but I think Christianity itself was hijacked within less than a decade of its inception. It's all there in the Bible.

Of course, I have the "heretic" notion that atheism is not a lack of belief, but rather, a belief in the power of humanity's self-determination.
