Own A Canadian

null I was reading this site today picking on odd bible ideas and came across a link that was asking if it was possible to own Canadians based on the following Verse in the Bible:
Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?
I was all excited to be able own a slave from my neighboring country, then I found out after talking to Ray that is seems that the law of the land says that I cannot own a Slave at all.
AMENDMENT XIII

Passed by Congress January 31, 1865. Ratified December 6, 1865.

Note: A portion of Article IV, section 2, of the Constitution was superseded by the 13th amendment.

Section 1.
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

This is really not very fun at all for me, except for the the fact that CL said to me on IM that I could own her later tonight if I wanted too. So I guess all ends well in the world of Kevin. I have such a great life and such a great wife.
