Bible Rape, Sex Slavery and the Abuse of Girls and Women

The Bible commands and/or condones rape, sex slavery and the abuse of girls
and women in a number of verses (meaning that the commandments are not
accidental or misinterpretations). As the Wikipedia page "The Bible and
Slavery" explains: "The Bible nowhere condemns slavery, but allows a
regulated practice of it, especially under the Old Testament, but also in the
New Testament. Male Israelite slaves were to be offered release after six
years of service, with some stipulations. However, girls, women and foreign
slaves and their offspring became the perpetual property of the owner's
family, except in the case of certain injuries. The regulation of slavery in
the Bible, and absence of outright condemnation of it as an institution, was
later used to justify slavery by its defenders [such as American Christians
who owned slaves in the southern states]."

The New Testament never condemns the institution of slavery. Indeed, Saint
Paul's epistle to Philemon became an important text in regard to slavery; as
it was used by American slaveowners to require Northern Christians to return
escaped slaves to their Southern masters. In the epistle, Paul returns
Onesimus, a runaway Christian slave, to his Christian master Philemon.
Neither Jesus Christ, nor Paul, nor any apostle or Hebrew prophet ever
clearly condemned the institution of slavery. Here are examples of Bible
passages that clearly command or condone slavery, sex slavery and/or rape:

When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of
six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he
may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to
foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the
slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat
her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself
marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or
clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these
three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus
21:7-11 NLT)

Here, a father can sell his own daughter as a sex slave, for life! If she
doesn’t “please” the man who bought her, her father has the option to buy her
back, but not the obligation. The girl’s new owner can “arrange” for her to
marry his sons, giving her no choice in the matter and thus forcing her to
become a sex slave. Or he can marry her, while taking other wives, forcing
her to become part of his harem. If he fails to have sex with her (i.e., if
he doesn't rape her repeatedly), she can become free.

Can anyone believe this is the "wisdom of God"? And yet many Christians claim
that every word of the Bible is the "inerrant" and "infallible" word of God!
