This link (or more in particular this one http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of...teronomic_code) however supports your reading of the particular parts, in regards to rape. Mind, we're talking about how Mose tells the Israelites to behave in their new country. Nowhere does it say that everybody afterwards should adhere to these laws. Which then again leads back to the point that the religion itself isn't particularly good or evil, but how people choose to interpret it and act upon this interpretation is. I mean, all of Christian teachings have been reworked a dozen times since that era (once by the son of the Big One himself), so you have to be willfully obstuse to cherry pick.
Funnily enough, Jesus was complaining about this blind adherence himself, when he asked whether people would let their children drown if it meant to walk more than the alotted amount of steps on a Sabbat.
