    Re: Is a daughter REQUIRED to marry her rapist?

    Here I am thinking it was to guide True Christians(tm) in following the Will of God so they could go to Heaven. Silly me. Of course the father's interests are much more important than God's.

    ...That's why I said, "and if he is?". Neither a bishop nor a deacon can divorce his wife and marry the rape victim...
    But you claimed that men (in general) cannot have more than wife. I asked you to show your support for this position.

      Re: Is a daughter REQUIRED to marry her rapist?

      A woman is nothing more and nothing less than privately owned property. She has absolutely no rights, except those which the Bible provides her with. The Bible does guarantee her the hospitality of her rapist. This is not to protect the woman so much as it is to prevent the father from having to care for her for the rest of his life.

      I feel I should also point out that the father may die sooner than the rapist. At this point there is a problem. Does the rapist pick up where the father left off, or is the woman just tossed out into the streets to hopefully be raped again? I think the Bible is silent on this point. Perhaps it should be up to Pastor Ezekiel.

        Not that a woman should have any choice in the matter, but why she would rather be a burden to her father rather than marry her rapist is beyond me. It wasn't her father who raped her, necessarily. If he did, then I guess there is no punishment for him. After all, he was just doing with his property what he chose.
        1 Corinthians 7:36-38

        King James Version (KJV)

        36 But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.
        37 Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well.
        38 So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.
        Any woman who refuses to marry her rapist must not love her father or, by extension, God. Any woman who doesn't marry her rapist will therefore most likely burn in Hell for all eternity.

        Not to mention, some rape is also adultery. The rape victim is then an adulteress and must be executed AS WELL AS marry her rapist. I wonder which should happen first?

          It does say that the rapist cannot put her away, so it does appear to guarantee her hospitality, and the right to his seed.

          The "break it, bought it" law only applies to a virgin; otherwise, it falls only to the "city/country" scream volume test. Since she'd not likely be betrothed (as a non-virgin), I imagine she'd be simply considered a harlot.

          Yes, I did. Secular law, which presently forbids polygamy. Therefore, under current secular law, while the church can demand that a rapist pay up to the rapee's father, it cannot force the rapist to divorce and remarry, as the rapist would then be living in sin; and the church cannot force him to marry a second wife, as it violates secular law.

          Should we change the law (perhaps with help from "Got Mittens?" Romney), to allow polygamy, then this would no longer be an obstacle.

          But what of the deacon or bishop who is married and rapes?

                What if he rapes her anally? Is this even rape if it is anal? After all, her hymen is still intact.

                I don't think she is entitled to anything but an execution if he's just sticking it in her butt.

                  Try not missing the point. You limited this thread to discussion of Biblical law:

                  Once again I ask: where does the Bible limit men (aside from bishops and deacons) to only one wife, which you raised as a rationalization for allowing a rapist to not marry his victim violating one of God's clearer instructions?

                      If we're under Biblical law, then there's no there's no obstacle to him marrying her. He wouldn't have to divorce any present wife (or wives, if he's naughty). If he's a bishop or deacon, he'd have to stop and find other work to support the new wife along with the old one(s). He has no choice in the matter.

                      I still can't see where "she shall be his wife" leaves any other option for the young lady. She has no choice in the matter.

                      The father shall be paid fifty shekels (and many arguments over what that amounts to in today's markets have yielded no general consensus). Default on the payment would be dealt with as unpaid debt. He can throw the money on the ground, give it to charity, stick it up his ***, but he has no choice in the matter.

                      No one has any choice in the matter, under Biblical law by the Scripture. So when you say in the OP, "The good news is that she has choices!", aren't you lying?

                      Under secular law (as we are, thankfully), stupid pifflehead asshole rapist goes straight to jail, and for a long time, hopefully.

                        Not at all.

                        The father, the rapist, and the judge can come to whatever settlement is most agreeable, since the father is the injured party in the case. There is also no commandment directed toward the rapee, as I've said before, nor toward the father, but toward the rapist only.

                        And let us not forget that this only applies to virgins who are not yet betrothed, and cases of rape (or consensual sex) where they are found in the act.

                        How many unbetrothed virgin girls are there among True Christians™? They're usually spoken for by the time they're 5.
