I love this argument - it works for gay rights, women's rights, fashion, food... Gonna argue with me about your bible? Better get in there and read it, peeps! Oh - and no cherry picking! Who are you to decide when and how your god's word is appropriate?
ZIPPORRAH Wife of the Writer of the First Five Books of the Bible And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.” (Num. 12:1) Members of both Christian and Jewish faiths are usually surprised to learn that the man God chose to write the first five books of the Bible was married to a black woman and suffered persecution for it. Moses’ wife was of Ethiopian (Cushitic) descent and her name was Zipporah.
