Bible hardly any position to judge

According to Philip Campbell (Write Back, March 16), the Bible clearly says that 'God instituted marriage as a union between a man and a woman'. But there's a lot he misses out.

The Bible contains examples of marriage that Mr Campbell might baulk at: King Solomon's 700 wives, the men of Benjamin kidnapping the dancing girls of Shiloh and Moses' soldiers seizing Midianite virgins - all these come to mind.

In short, God's view of marriage comprises one man and however many girls or women he can capture, or afford.
