1. It is uncertain where consent ends and force begins. Because that is largely a religious question that cannot be determined by science, it has no place...
Repeating an earlier comment: It's interesting how different Deuteronomy 22 sounds when one actually reads the entire context. I notice you had to skip some verses in order to make your false points. Although "not screaming for help" does seem like an odd way to describe "consenting to cheat on her fiancee," that's what it comes out to. Besides that, you show the typical failure to grasp the significance of such violent penalties in the OT: to a perfect God, sin is *dead serious*. That's why the grace that came in the NT is so crucial. Assuming you only think something's evil if it offends of inconveniences you personally, that's probably hard for you to grasp.
I know it sounds outrageous, but the arguments my liberal readers make for abortion have convinced me that they are trying to legalize rape. Aside from the obvious fact that rape is a moral issue (and one can’t legislate morality), pro-abortion reasoning provides 10 additional reasons for making rape legal. I have enumerated all of them below. I have even taken the time to expand on some of the more disturbing arguments:
