ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape

Claiming the Quran’s support, the Islamic State codifies sex slavery in conquered regions of Iraq and Syria and uses the practice as a recruiting tool.

QADIYA, Iraq —
In the moments before he raped the 12-year-old girl, the Islamic State fighter took the time to explain that what he was about to do was not a sin. Because the preteen girl practiced a religion other than Islam, the Quran not only gave him the right to rape her — it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted.

He bound her hands and gagged her. Then he knelt beside the bed and prostrated himself in prayer before getting on top of her.

When it was over, he knelt to pray again, bookending the rape with acts of religious devotion.

“I kept telling him it hurts — please stop,” said the girl, whose body is so small an adult could circle her waist with two hands. “He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God,” she said in an interview alongside her family in a refugee camp here, to which she escaped after 11 months of captivity.

I don't think there are a lot of ladies, who sympathize with them.

What god demands such things from the faithful and rewards them for it? No god. It was all made up by a misogynistic crazy person.

A real "God" by any definition, shouldn't need a legion of peons to "do his bidding". If he wants the Phragmatites dead, he can come down here and smite them his own damn self. If he wants all the statues and artwork of a culture destroyed, he doesn't need a bunch of bearded barbarians in pajamas to take a sledgehammer to them, he can simply zap them into dust.
