En realidad debería decir familiares, pero así os va a llamar más la atención. Nos los cuenta Obadiah Shoher, un judío ultraortodoxo, en Samson Blinded: Marital habits of Jewish forefathers.
Los dichos patrones copulatorios de los patriarcas judíos son los de cualquier jeque petrolero actual: poligamia, fornicio libre con infieles, concubinato y esclavas sexuales sin más límites que las posibilidades económicas (tamaño del rebaño de cabras)… No menciona la lapidación de adúlteras pero está implícita en el contexto. En cambio, me sorprende que se considerara aceptable la prostitución de la mujer divorciada; es decir, repudiada por el marido.
Ya os he dicho hasta la saciedad -y algunos pensaréis con razón que hasta el hartazgo- que el Islam es el enloquecido judaísmo veterotestamentario trasplantado al siglo XXI.
Moses’ marriage is the most enigmatic of all: he married a daughter of the Midian high priest. The problem is the Midians were notorious idol-worshipers who engaged in ritual sex and orgies. Jews copulated with Midian women, and incurred divine wrath on themselves and extermination on the Midians. Moses was commanded to annihilate the Midians-his dear relatives-as the last divine commission before death. Moses’ wife was no exception from her tribe’s worship: their child Gershom was initially uncircumcised, and his later circumcision smacks of a pagan rite: the Midian wife (rather than Moses) performed the ritual to establish a «blood covenant» with divine forces. Moses did not take the wife seriously, and at one point sent her away. There is no chance she would have passed Orthodox conversion in our time.
Continuing with his enigmatic marital habits, Moses took an Ethiopian wife, at which point his relatives revolted. Classical commentators have labored to explain what was so irritating about an extra wife, but the answer seems to lie in the fact that Moses was tongue-tied. He was fluent in Ethiopian rather than Hebrew. According to midrashic and haggadic sources, Moses spent considerable time in Ethiopia. So a Kushite wife was a return to his old habits and allegiances. Emboldened by the direct contact with God, Moses came to believe that everything was permissible to him-which raised sharp objections from his brother and sister.
Si Moisés va a peces, qué harán los feligreses.
