Quote# 3467

I believe you are refering to when a single woman is raped and then given in marriage to her attacker. he is never allowed to leave her, as defined in the old testament laws. I believe this system was in place to protect the woman and any offsrping she might have as a result.

How does being forced to marry her rapist protect the woman, fucktard?

So being married to a psycho rapist is a good thing for you and your offspring?

\"I believe this system was in place to protect the woman and any offsrping she might have as a result.\"

Then you aren't thinking in the terms of that period. This rule places the raped girl with her abuser and under his legal control permanently! That is hardly anyone's idea of a way to \"protect the woman.\" That wasn't the point at all.

The rule was put in place simply to compensate the girl's father for being unable to sell her off as a suitable bride because, having been raped and thus robbed of her (presumed) virginity, she was thus \"damaged goods.\" The girl's father is the one whose legal \"rights\" are being looked after here! She isn't being protected at all; that's not even an incidental consideration. She is simply being treated as a piece of vandalized property.

You seem to have problems with the word \"protect\".

Yeah, I'm sure life as the wife of a hateful rapist must have been just swell.

Marrying to a person who brutalise her is a protection to her and her children?. When you hire a former thief as security ward, you may have a point. And besides, why didn't they have an universal BAN on prostitution, if they cared so much about the children?

Funny then that I've seen no court cases where DNA evidence identified a rapist and the fundie family insisted on a forced marriage. Don't even come here and try to pretend fundie girls don't get raped.

So brilliant system had to be designed by a perfect God.

Forcing a woman to marry her rapist sounds like a good idea to you?

(Don't even ask what happens if she was gang raped. Does she marry the first rapist, or all of them, or what?)

Yeah, god cares so much about the children....

And what about killing forty two children just for making fun of someone? How is that "protecting" them?
"From there Elisha went up to Bethel.  While he was on his way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him.  "Go up baldhead," they shouted, "go up baldhead!"  The prophet turned and saw them, and he cursed them in the name of the Lord.  Then two shebears came out of the woods and tore forty two of the children to pieces."  (2 Kings 2:23-24 NAB)
 
And what about all the children killed in your "global" flood? I'm sure as they were dying horribly under the water all they could think of was how they were being "protected".

"Protect"? You keep using that word. I do not think that word means what you think it means.

I am sure that the psycho rapist would become a very good husband because the bible says he has to.

What planet are these people from?
