quote: Oh I'm sure Jones is not making an equation between our laws and OT laws in his discussion of sex as God's creation;
It is, in fact, quite common to appeal to OT laws when Christians want to condemn homosexuality. And Jones mentions the Bible as authority, not just the NT.
quote: I was responding only to your complaint that the woman would "have to" scream to prove rape as if that was such an unfair imposition on her.
Aside from the fact that my complaint was that enforcing that part of the OT Law now would be a horrible idea it was still pretty horrible even then.
A presumption of guilt in a capital case is hardly nice under any circumstances. Perhaps you would do better appealing to the fact that if it was rape she might have to marry her attacker and death might be the preferable option ? Or maybe not.
