How can you continue to push the lie that the 32,000 virgins would freely choose to marry the brutal, wicked men that just slaughtered everyone they knew and loved? How can you be so heartless? Do you really think that those women in would willingly marry and have sex with the soldiers who just murdered their moms, dads, brothers, sisters, cousins, and everyone else they knew and loved? Your comments horrify me.

It let the Israeli soldiers capture a woman in war, kill her whole family, screw her, and the toss her out like a used rag? This is the most immoral law that I have ever seen.
You conveniently left out the part that says the soldiers can screw the women and then "let them go."

And that's the problem with God commanding his people to become mass murderers and baby killers. That is PRECISELY what brutalizes the human soul, and it leads to the kind of behavior we see in those videos. That's why the commands in the Bible were so totally wicked and evil. God brutalized the souls of the Israelis, and so it is very likely that they acted like the rapists in the videos.
It's pretty pathetic if the only way you can make God look good is by comparing him with the men in those videos.
