Interracial Marriage and the Bible

Interracial Marriage and the Bible
Moses was probably the best man in the Bible next to Jesus. He was married to a Cushite woman (African). Apparently God sees nothing wrong with interracial marriages.

Any thoughts on this?

RE: Interracial Marriage and the Bible
Going by Deuteronomy 7:3-4: You shall not intermarry with them, giving your daughters to their sons or taking their daughters for your sons, for they would turn away your sons from following me, to serve other gods. Then the anger of the Lord would be kindled against you, and he would destroy you quickly god is against Israelite's marrying outside their tribe. For religious reasons as it seems but objection is still objection.
The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

And there is 2 Corinthians 6:14: 14Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15Or what harmony has Christ with Belial, or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever?…

It's not race though. It just places the "true believers" against all of the other non-humans on the planet, in true xtian style.

I would say true monotheistic style. Also this part about light and darkness is strangely Manichean. Wasn't Judaism somehow tied with Zoroastrianism?

I would not be surprised if you could found such objections in the Bible.

Goddam Amelekites, don't want to hear about any of you consorting with those pigdogs.

I don't look to the Bible to justify my love.

When dealing with fantasies almost anything can be made up to suit any of mans desires. As long as you say the fantasy told you and you get enough people to believe. Lust, love, control, power, greed, hate.............
