I think the Bible more than adequately defends traditional marriage. I think Andy544 quite eloquently illustrates that point. Moses married a Black Woman. The Bible acknowledges only one key point in this; he married a WOMAN. The fact that she was Black was a mere passing factor. By interpretation, the marriage was honored and the fact that she was Black was of no consequence. The factors of importance which presented themselves were that HE was a MAN and SHE was a WOMAN. The matter of race was simply a matter of passing interest.
