The Family Research Council hates marriage equality, yes we hates it, we does.  So I had a look at the User Manual for the Judeo-Christian Society, i.e., the Bible, to find out what sort of relationship would be approved by the Lord on high.  

Lot and his Daughters
      Lot and his Daughters, Bible-approved® Wine and Cheese
      Party, by Hendrick Goltzius (1558-1617)
And lo, I did find Genesis 19:30-38, being the story of Lot and his daughters.  

Now Lot, as you will recall, was the only righteous man in the city of Sodom, and as such as allowed, with his family to depart the city before it was destroyed by the Lord on account of the sexual depravity of its citizens.  

Mrs. Lot made the mistake of looking back on the city and for this the Lord turned her into a pillar of salt.  

And so the scene was set for some interesting times chez Lot.

According to Genesis 19:30, things were getting a bit lonesome in the Lot household, hence ...

30 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.

31 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:

32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.

37 And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.

38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

For handy illustrated version, please see the Brick Testament.  Note in the last scene, Lot is still boozing it up in the background, even after the birth of his sons/grandsons.  

And naturally, there's a YouTube video to celebrate the Blessed Occasion.  From Unbelievably Messed Up Bible Stories, comes ...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
