One of the most heinous crimes imaginable and yet the Christian Bible condones and even approves of rape.

How can anyone get moral guidance from a book or God that allows rape?

Lot Offers His Daughters to be Gang Raped


All the men of Sodom demand to have “relations” with Lot’s houseguests (two angels).  Lot then offers his two virgin daughters to be raped by the mob instead.  The angels then blind the mob and tell Lot to get out of town.  Lot is never admonished or criticized for offering his daughters to be gang raped.   Genesis 19:4-9

Lot Drugged and Raped by His Daughters


mindsoap - lot raped by daughtersNow Lot went up out of Zoar and lived in the hills with his two daughters, for he was afraid to live in Zoar. So he lived in a cave with his two daughters. And the firstborn said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is not a man on earth to come in to us after the manner of all the earth. Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve offspring from our father.” So they made their father drink wine that night. And the firstborn went in and lay with her father. He did not know when she lay down or when she arose. The next day, the firstborn said to the younger, “Behold, I lay last night with my father. Let us make him drink wine tonight also. Then you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve offspring from our father.”    Genesis 19:30-38

More Rape


Shechem rapes Dinah and then demands her father give her to him as a wife. Hamor (Shechem’s father) also makes the same demand.  Hamor then asks for the other daughters and offers his own daughters to Dinah’s father.  Dinah’s brothers insist that Hamor, Shechem, and their people be circumcised to seal the deal, which they agree to.  Dinah’s brothers then murder everyone, loot the village, and take their sister back.   Genesis 34:1-31

God Wants Sex Slaves


When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are.  If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again.  But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her.  And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter.  If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife.  If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.   Exodus 21:7-11

Murder, Rape and Pillage of the Midianites


numbers31Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the people went to meet them outside the camp.  But Moses was furious with all the military commanders who had returned from the battle.  “Why have you let all the women live?” he demanded.  “These are the very ones who followed Balaam’s advice and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the LORD at Mount Peor.  They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the LORD’s people.  Now kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man.  Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves.   Numbers 31:7-18

Moses is pissed at his military commanders for showing mercy and orders them to go back, murder all the boys and women who have slept with a man… but keep the virgins for raping.. all with God’s approval.

More Murder Rape and Pillage


As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace.  If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor.  But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town.  When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town.  But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder.  You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you.   Deuteronomy 20:10-14

What kind of God approves of murder, rape, and slavery?

.

Rape of Female Captives


“When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house.  But before she may live there, she must shave her head and pare her nails and lay aside her captive’s garb.  After she has mourned her father and mother for a full month, you may have relations with her, and you shall be her husband and she shall be your wife.  However, if later on you lose your liking for her, you shall give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or enslave her, since she was married to you under compulsion.”   Deuteronomy 21:10-14

Once again God approves of forcible rape.

.

Death to the Rape Victim


If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of the city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbors wife.   Deuteronomy 22:23-24

 It is clear that God doesn’t give a damn about the rape victim.  He is only concerned about the violation of another mans “property”.

.

Laws of Rape


mindsoap - deuteronomy 22 28-29, laws of rapeIf a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father.  Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.   Deuteronomy 22:28-29

What kind of sick lunatic would make a rape victim marry her attacker?  Answer: God.

Rape and the Spoils of War


They must be dividing the spoils they took: there must be a damsel or two for each man, Spoils of dyed cloth as Sisera’s spoil, an ornate shawl or two for me in the spoil.   Judges 5:30

Father Offers His Own Daughter to be Gang Raped


the-bible-the-only-place-its-ok-to-let-men-rape-your-daughter_o_794815Behold, here are my virgin daughter and concubine. Let me bring them out now. Violate them and do with them what seems good to you, but against this man do not do this outrageous thing.”   Judges 19:24

So this guy defends a house guest by encouraging a mob to repeatedly gang rape his daughter and concubine throughout the night.  He later cuts her up into twelve parts and sends the pieces into Israel.

Murder, Rape, and Pillage at Jabesh-gilead


So they sent twelve thousand warriors to Jabesh-gilead with orders to kill everyone there, including women and children.  “This is what you are to do,” they said. “Completely destroy all the males and every woman who is not a virgin.”  Among the residents of Jabesh-gilead they found four hundred young virgins who had never slept with a man, and they brought them to the camp at Shiloh in the land of Canaan.

The Israelite assembly sent a peace delegation to the little remnant of Benjamin who were living at the rock of Rimmon. Then the men of Benjamin returned to their homes, and the four hundred women of Jabesh-gilead who were spared were given to them as wives.  But there were not enough women for all of them.  The people felt sorry for Benjamin because the LORD had left this gap in the tribes of Israel.  So the Israelite leaders asked, “How can we find wives for the few who remain, since all the women of the tribe of Benjamin are dead?  There must be heirs for the survivors so that an entire tribe of Israel will not be lost forever.  But we cannot give them our own daughters in marriage because we have sworn with a solemn oath that anyone who does this will fall under God’s curse.”

Then they thought of the annual festival of the LORD held in Shiloh, between Lebonah and Bethel, along the east side of the road that goes from Bethel to Shechem.  They told the men of Benjamin who still needed wives, “Go and hide in the vineyards.  When the women of Shiloh come out for their dances, rush out from the vineyards, and each of you can take one of them home to be your wife!  And when their fathers and brothers come to us in protest, we will tell them, ‘Please be understanding.  Let them have your daughters, for we didn’t find enough wives for them when we destroyed Jabesh-gilead. And you are not guilty of breaking the vow since you did not give your daughters in marriage to them.'”  So the men of Benjamin did as they were told.  They kidnapped the women who took part in the celebration and carried them off to the land of their own inheritance.  Then they rebuilt their towns and lived in them.  So the assembly of Israel departed by tribes and families, and they returned to their own homes.   Judges 21:10-24

Obviously these women were repeatedly raped.  These sick bastards killed and raped an entire town and then wanted more virgins, so they hid beside the road to kidnap and rape some more.  How can anyone see this as anything but evil?

Polygamy, Rape, Baby Killing, and God’s “Forgiveness”


Thus says the Lord: ‘I will bring evil upon you out of your own house.  I will take your wives [plural] while you live to see it, and will give them to your neighbor.  He shall lie with your wives in broad daylight.  You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and with the sun looking down.’  Then David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.”  Nathan answered David: “The Lord on his part has forgiven your sin: you shall not die.  But since you have utterly spurned the Lord by this deed, the child born to you must surely die.”  [The child dies seven days later.]   2 Samuel 12:11-14

This has got to be one of the sickest quotes of the Bible.  God himself brings the completely innocent rape victims to the rapist.  What kind of pathetic loser would do something so evil?  And then he kills a child!

Amnon pretends to be sick and rapes his sister Tamar


“… he grabbed her and said, “Come to bed with me, my sister.  She answered him, “No, my brother, do not violate me, for such a thing is not done in Israel; do not do this outrageous thing. As for me, where could I carry my shame? And as for you, you would be as one of the outrageous fools in Israel. Now therefore, please speak to the king, for he will not withhold me from you.” But he would not listen to her, and being stronger than she, he violated her and lay with her.    2 Samuel 13:12-14

After raping his half sister, Amon has Tamar thrown out of the house.  Her other brother, Absalom essentially tells her to not make a big deal out of it and takes her in.  King David is pissed but does absolutely nothing.  Two years later Absalom kills Amnon for what he had done.

God Assists Rape and Plunder


Lo, a day shall come for the Lord when the spoils shall be divided in your midst.  And I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem for battle: the city shall be taken, houses plundered, women ravished; half of the city shall go into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be removed from the city.   Zechariah 14:1-2

.

Note that in many places in the Bible there are references to “taking a wife”.  Don’t be fooled into thinking that these were voluntary marriages.
