I have a very ambivalent feeling to the Bible. I on the one hand find clever thoughts in it again and again; on the other hand the violence contained in it repels me. Primarily if "God" ordered the violence. As the destruction of whole peoples or people which believe something else. Or, as in the case of Lot; for the rape this one offers his own daughters. By the way rape: Did you know that a man who raped a virgin had to marry his victim? Everything is in the OT. Deuteronomy 22:28-29 Genesis 19:8 (Lot and his daughters) My question: Why allowed God violence against women? Why did women had not a chance to look herself for a husband? BTW: Deuteronomy talks about RAPE, not about sexual immorality.
