5:54 Don't you wish it had just been a regular shot gun wedding?
13:59 It is not all rape, only some rapes where stoning is involved.
Other ones, the rapist is obliged to marry the victim, if her father wants him to.
Note very well, there might have been some abuse of that paragraph to arrange "rapes", because an unraped virgin getting seduced, under OT, would have been stoned.
 If a man seduce a virgin not yet espoused, and lie with her: he shall endow her, and have her to wife.  If the maid's father will not give her to him, he shall give money according to the dowry, which virgins are wont to receive. (Exodus 22)
Here it says seduce, I think there is a parallel for rape.
Here is Deuteronomy 22:
 If a man have espoused a damsel that is a virgin, and some one find her in the city, and lie with her, Thou shalt bring them both out to the gate of that city, and they shall be stoned: the damsel, because she cried not out, being in the city: the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife. And thou shalt take away the evil from the midst of thee.  But if a man find a damsel that is betrothed, in the field, and taking hold of her, lie with her, he alone shall die:  The damsel shall suffer nothing, neither is she guilty of death: for as a robber riseth against his brother, and taketh away his life, so also did the damsel suffer:  She was alone in the field: she cried, and there was no man to help her.  If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, who is not espoused, and taking her, lie with her, and the matter come to judgment:  He that lay with her shall give to the father of the maid fifty sides of silver, and shall have her to wife, because he hath humbled her: he may not put her away all the days of his life.  No man shall take his father's wife, nor remove his covering.
So, the rapist who is taking a non-espoused damsel is not stoned, but bound to take her.
Biblical model for shotgun wedding.
14:56 No, I don't think it is genetics which decides who commits a crime.
Weeding out genes (other than by death penalty, which is not due for every rape), comes dangerously close to what St Paul prophecied to St Timothy.
1 Tim 4 :  Now the Spirit manifestly saith, that in the last times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to spirits of error, and doctrines of devils,  Speaking lies in hypocrisy, and having their conscience seared,  Forbidding to marry, to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving by the faithful, and by them that have known the truth.
Hey, one more thing.
Some women get pregnant by rape.
I guess you do NOT consider this as an excuse for abortion, at least I don't.
If a raped women forgives the rapist or if she gets a chance of killing him and does, which do you think is healthier for her relationship to the child?
