Islam 101: The Religion of Rape

By Christopher Logan
In this latest addition to my Islam 101 series, I will explain how Mohammad, and Islam OK rape.

From the Islamic scriptures I will start with:

Koran 004.024
YUSUFALI: Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess: Thus hath Allah ordained (Prohibitions) against you: Except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage) with gifts from your property,- desiring chastity, not lust, seeing that ye derive benefit from them, give them their dowers (at least) as prescribed; but if, after a dower is prescribed, agree Mutually (to vary it), there is no blame on you, and Allah is All-knowing, All-wise.
