"If a law forces rapists to marry their victims, then perhaps the number of rapes will decline to near zero."
What if the woman is married? Are you suggesting polygamy? Okay. Whatever works for you...
Ah, and what's more you're forcing the woman to marry the rapist. I don't know about you, but if I got raped and had to marry the person who demeaned me in that way, I would throw a b*tch fit and castrate every man that passed that law (as well as, of course, the rapist while he's asleep).
And your point does not hold up in the least - A man would still rape a woman...He'd get to have a rape toy for the rest of his life (his thought process...He wouldn't live long enough).
"Whats more, if the law requires rapists to pay fifty shekels of silver to the father, this could indeed equate to the death penalty if the rapist hasnt saved toward his brides future."
As if the rapist will expect to get caught.
...And what if the rape victim doesn't have a father? Or a mother? Or family? Does she get the money? Heck, that's just lovely then - Way to treat a woman like chattel AND like a prostitute.
Oh. And, if the rapist doesn't have enough money, would the rape victim be allowed to remove those "five shekels" out of his ass?
"Thus, we have narrowed down the field of rapists who marry their victims to only those who have saved for their “brides” future."
So, all rapists would be either rich f***s, rapists who never expect to get caught, and rapists who want permanent concubines.
"If the girl happens to be ugly, he is required to marry her anyway."
Same goes in reverse.
"Again, this stipulation will help narrow the field further since potential rapists will be motivated to think before acting."
The way murderers are motivated to "think" about prison before they kill, right? The way rapists are motivated to "think" about prison before they rape, right?
"Thirdly, if one selects his wife through means of rape, then hell never be able to divorce her even if she turns out to be a transvestite."
...And SHE will never be able to divorce him, apparently. Even though he's a disgusting ass-hole (an insult to ass-holes, yes, I apologize). Since you're forcing them to marry, I mean.
"The law is putting so many roadblocks into the potential rapists path, and causing him to think, I would guess most potential rapists would opt for the easier path of waiting for a willing partner."
Most rapes occur out of rage and power-hunger. Not the need for sex. Men can get laid with prostitutes or by other means if they really want sex. All you are doing is setting up these rapists with wives to beat and rape again.
"Thus, such a society could easily exceed the American society in quality by many fold."
...No. See above.
Also, say a man rapes another man or a woman rapes another woman...
Would you legalize gay marriage in such a case? Hmm...You know, I can see a lot of consenting homosexual couples taking advantage of such an opportunity.
...In the end, though, I have to that this really kills the bible for me. What are we? Sparta? In rape, one adult subdues another by force and viciously demeans them. This should not result in something that should be tender and loving as marriage is meant to be.
Or the rapist will just kill the victim afterwards. Not that fundies seem to care about women...But, if the victim were a man (or a young child), well I wonder if whoever posted this would suddenly change his mind?
