If God doesn't respect people, why should people respect him? Isn't that pretty much the ethic of reciprocity?

Also, there is no place in scripture where rape is treated as admirable.
But keep alive for yourselves all the young girls who have not known a man intimately. (Numbers 31:18)

So they instructed the Benjamites, saying, “Go and hide in the vineyards and watch. When the young women of Shiloh come out to join in the dancing, rush from the vineyards and each of you seize one of them to be your wife. Then return to the land of Benjamin.(Judges 21:20-21) This is after they'd slaughtered the people of Jabesh-Gilead and taken their women.

When you go to war against your enemies and the Lord your God delivers them into your hands and you take captives, if you notice among the captives a beautiful woman and are attracted to her, you may take her as your wife. Bring her into your home and have her shave her head, trim her nails and put aside the clothes she was wearing when captured. After she has lived in your house and mourned her father and mother for a full month, then you may go to her and be her husband and she shall be your wife. If you are not pleased with her, let her go wherever she wishes. You must not sell her or treat her as a slave, since you have dishonored her. (Deuteronomy 21:10-14)

Need some more? They're in there.
[quote]it is clear, you don't have a real grasp of scripture, and you just really want to try to find things to take out of context given the culture of the world at the time. It is highly anachronistic. [/QUOT] What does the culture of the time have to do with it? Isn't the Bible the perfect source of all morality? Was God constrained by the culture of the time?

I guess if you are self-absorbed and want to string along a woman looking for stability and support. I thought you were against taking advantage of women?
Women can only find value and stability in being the possession of a man? Do you really believe that?
Quote:
That mode of relationship didn't exist before the fallen world. Sin changed the nature of the relationship. It says that the woman would now desire her husband. Genesis 3:16. It is not the way God designed or wanted it.
God didn't want wives to desire their husbands? If not for the Fall, how would they have been fruitful and multiplied?
Quote:
If He hated us, He wouldn't have come to earth and taken the penalty upon Himself.
He didn't, he invented a son to get knocked around a bit so he could demand more unquestioning obedience.
Quote:
As far as mistreating women, you should examine your own relationship with them. Have you not viewed them as sexual objects? Given the fact that you have no moral code, I suspect you have.
Did I miss the part where Glock36shooter said he had no moral code?
