  • Vladimir Putin and the Constitution

    Russian President Vladimir Putin wants marriage to be defined as the union of a man and woman in a revised constitution, ruling out gay marriage.
    The package includes a proclamation of Russians' faith in God and a ban on giving away any Russian territory [...] according to Vladimir Mashkov, a renowned actor-director involved in drafting the new constitution.
    I see this a sign that President Putin is a True Christian™ at heart, and that any involvement that he might have had in electing Mr Trump is, because of this, irrelevant. Both Mr Trump and Mr Putin are led by God - What Mr Putin wants is "of God" and what Mr Trump wants is "of God". We can see that any suspicions of a crime is impossible as God can do no wrong.

    I am sure that Mr Trump wants the same thing. That the leaders of two so different countries can reach the same conclusion is little short of miraculous, yet it is not amazing: God speaks through the most amazing of people and things - the delusional, the simple, the powerful, martyrs, persecutors, children, the grotesquely disabled, young peasant girls in distant lands, etc, etc., and we can think of many more. How unremarkable that He should speak through World Leaders - Men whose time has come.

    To that end, and in the light of the Russian future constitution, I am proposing, for Mr Trump's eyes, the 28th and 29th Amendments:

    Amendment 28: All American Citizens are henceforward Christians. To renounce Christianity causes citizenship to be revoked. Only Christians benefit from the foregoing Constitution and its Amendments. No Non-Christian shall have any authority over a Christian. Only Christians may possess property of any type.

    Amendment 29: Marriage may exist only between a Christian born a man and a Christian born woman. All other supposed "unions" are null and void and will result in criminal sanction.

    I will note that (a) "Christianity" is tightly defined as "as per Landover Baptist Church." and the paragraph on miscegenation that is to be added to Amendment 29 is in draft form at the moment.

    “We must reassert that the essence of Christianity is the love of obedience to God’s Laws and that how that complete obedience is used or implemented does not concern us.”
