聖書における”結婚”の定義。

ブッシュが”同姓結婚”を禁止する条項を憲法に加えたがっているのは少し前にニュースになってたが、それについてMcDermott下院議員が実際に下院で説明した聖書における”結婚”の定義。
Congressional Record - House (February 25, 2004)

  • Marriage shall consist of a union between one man and one or more women. That is from Genesis 29:17-28.
  • Secondly, marriage shall not impede a man's right to take concubines in addition to his wife or wives. That is II Samuel 5:13 and II Chronicles 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. That is Deuteronomy 22:13.
  • Marriage of a believer and a nonbeliever shall be forbidden. That is Genesis 24:3.
  • Finally, it says that since there is no law that can change things, divorce is not possible, and finally, if a married man dies, his brother has to marry his sister-in-law. Gen. 38:6-10; Deut 25:5-10

この内容をもって”同姓結婚”を禁じるのは”ただのへりくつ”にしか思えない気がするんだけれど…。
