Nope, I am not. And I do not say that people should not dress more modestly in general: I say that people should not be raped because of it.
Do you know the bible by heart? Does it not say anywhere that it is wrong for men to rape women or are you just cherry-picking right now?
Why don't you read it yourself, instead of getting the cliff notes from True Christians™?
In modern society, where God's law is frequently not upheld, the effects of rape on the victim's family are sometimes tragic. He is stuck with a daughter that will never leave the house. If he does not share Lot's appetites, she becomes a liability.
The Bible makes clear that rape, under many circumstances, is a serious tort and nothing to joke about. Depending on the conditions of the rape, the negligent party may be forced to pay restitution to the rapee's father and marry the woman he damaged. You break it, you buy it, basically. God, being infinitely wise, recognized that an unmarried woman without a hymen is mostly worthless and hard to get rid of. It is no different than if you were to knock a lamp off a shelf in a furniture store. How is the owner supposed to sell the lamp after you smashed it on the ground?
Raping the wives of enemy combatants is a Godly and humane practice. These women do not have hymens, and therefore have no means of supporting themselves. It is the noble burden of the victor to feed and rape these women for the rest of their lives. If he fails to do this, civil authorities should compel him to do so.
Liberals tend to see rape as a black and white matter, but the issue is very complex as God explains in His Word. Rape is sometimes a necessary evil. The rest of the time, the damage caused by an unsanctioned rape can be rectified in civil court with more rape.
If you had bothered to read the Bible you would know this already.
