Do not thou be too hasty, quoth McDermott

The Hill has published a summary [look for the heading above about 2/3 of the way down the page] of Rep. Jim McDermott's one-minute address giving a fuller story on the biblical principles of marriage:

Amid increasing rancor over same sex-marriages and the federal marriage amendment, Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) took to the House floor last week to denounce the invocation of �biblical principles� of marriage by the �presidential prayer team.�

In a one-minute address, the fiery Seattle liberal said the book of Genesis allows for marriage �between one man and one or more women� and that �marriage of a believer and a nonbeliever shall be forbidden.�

And from Deuteronomy: �A marriage shall be considered valid only if the wife is a virgin. If the wife is not a virgin, she shall be executed.�

And he said, according to the Bible, �divorce is not possible, and finally, if a married man dies, his brother has to marry his sister-in-law.�
