Not true. "Rape and pillage" has long been the standard for warfare.

for you to say rape reveals your hoped for bias. It does not say rape nor does it imply rape.

Ah. So, killing all virgin males, all non-virgin males, all non-virgin females.... but keeping the virgin females, implies... no rape? Interesting logic there.

So, does God think that virgins are better servants than non-virgins or something? By the way, this hardly the only time in the bible that God endorses rape.

*bump*

While I don't think Yaro's "drawing flies with vinegar" idea was the best, I would like to see this addressed also.
