    Secular constitution protects all

    The Founding Fathers insisted that our Constitution be secular in order to protect all believers and non-believers from each other and the government.

    Yet, Conrad Hall (Letters to the Observer, Jan. 30) is under the illusion that the Constitution’s foundation is the Bible.

    So, here is a proposed constitutional amendment to codify marriage on biblical principles:

    A. Marriage in the United States shall consist of a union between one man and one or more women. Genesis 29:17-28; 11 Sam 3:2-5.

    B. Marriage shall not impede a man’s right to take concubines, in addition to his wife or wives. (II Samuel 5:13, I Kings 11:3-11, Chronicles 11:21)

    C. A marriage shall be considered valid only if the wife is a virgin. If the wife is not a virgin, she shall be executed. Deuteronomy 22:13-21.

    D. Marriage of a believer and a non-believer shall be forbidden. Genesis 24:3, Numbers 25:1-9, Ezra 9:12, Nehemiah 10:30.

    E. Since marriage is for life, neither this Constitution nor the constitution of any state, nor any state or federal law, shall be construed to permit divorce. Deuteronomy 22:19; Mark 10:9.

    F. 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. Genesis 38:6-10, Deuteronomy 25:5-10.
