No, in Deut. 21:13-14, it states that if the marriage [between an Israeli soldier and a female war prisoner] does not work out she is free to go and should not be humiliated and treated like a slave. So there is no rape here.

So the fact that she's treated like chattel and handed out like a prize to a stranger who expects her to perform her "wifely duties" doesn't suggest rape in any way? How would you like it if you were forced to marry someone you didn't even know? Who was part of the conquering army that killed your relatives and took away your home? Would you be so inclined to sleep with them? I think not.

What about her consent to marry in the first place?

READ YOUR OWN FUCKING BOOK! THERE'S NOTHING ABOUT LETTING THEM GO!

13And when the LORD thy God hath delivered it into thine hands, thou shalt smite every male thereof with the edge of the sword:

14But the women, and the little ones, and the cattle, and all that is in the city, even all the spoil thereof, shalt thou take unto thyself; and thou shalt eat the spoil of thine enemies, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.

But it does tells you to be a cannibal - hey, you take this shit literally, not me.

Unfortunately for you, what it says in Deut. means less than jackshit in the real world. You do know that the bible is not binding in law, don't you?

Oh, you don't? Well, now you know.
