    They’re all Old Testament, which isn’t, for lack of a better word, valid anymore. The verses he cited were all within the first 3 books of the Bible. The New Testament isn’t until the end, and it’s only about 20 of the 60-something total books. The New Testament is what Christians are supposed to follow, the Old Testament is more of a history lesson.

    If you take everything from the bible literally, then sure.  I don’t think it’s all meant to be taken literally though.

    As a Jew whose religion is based entirely on the Torah, both written and oral, this guy has it all wrong.

     

    He is selectively reads, removing context.

     

    Women were not commanded to marry their rapists – that law is for men who have consensual sex with virgins, and the man is the one who is forced to marry the woman if she wants to. The laws of marriage in Judaism do not change, and the woman MUST accept her husband, always.  The man, by raping her, gives away his right to accept whoever he marries; i.e. he loses his right to say no.
