Wait, Bishop—you said in the second line that "[t]here is a danger before us that is exceptional," but then spent the remainder of the letter taking about marriage and its potential civil expansion. Clearly, judging by the parodic and hyperbolic style of everything that follows the second line, you made a mistake. This must have been the letter you were preparing about the impending zombie attack, only to get sidetracked right out of the gate.

Please, at your earliest convenience, send the text of the actual letter that truly addresses the merits of civil marriage in the way that it deserves to be addressed. Should you need me, I'll be in my bunker stocking up canned goods and zombie deterrent.
