FROM NOM: Pastors' Resolution Petition

From NOM's Action Center page, where the "Bible believing pastors of Rhode Island" have posted a resolution petition.
Relative to bills H-5012 and S-0029 before the RI General Assembly

WHEREAS, The laws of nature, human reason, and thousands of years of human tradition in all cultures have always affirmed marriage to be a heterosexual institution; and
WHEREAS, Our own society has been based from the beginning on the Judeo-Christian ethic which defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman; and
WHEREAS, The Bible and Jesus Christ in particular define marriage as a heterosexual union between one man and one woman (Genesis 1:27; 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6); and
WHEREAS, Monogamous heterosexual marriage, involving the intimate, permanent union between the two complementary sexes, male and female, is uniquely and naturally suited to fulfill our deepest needs for human companionship; and
WHEREAS, Under normal circumstances, children are best nurtured in the context of a two-parent family, where appropriate male behavior is modeled by a loving father and appropriate female behavior is modeled by a loving mother; and
WHEREAS, Heterosexual marriage provides the strong moral, social, and economic foundation for both family and community life; and WHEREAS, Rhode Island continues to be one of the few states without a so-called Defense of Marriage Act; and
WHEREAS, The Bible in both the Old Testament and the New Testament clearly and specifically forbids homosexual conduct – as well as all other forms of sexual misconduct outside the bounds of heterosexual marriage (Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; 1 Timothy 1:8-11);
It goes on, but it's just more whereas-blah-Jeebus-blah.
