NYTimes’ ISIS and its Theology of Rape

This is a very powerful piece of journalism about one of the most talked about atrocities of our time. I don’t even know how best I can explain this article. It needs to be read for anyone to fully grasp the magnitude and horrificness of its story. All I can say is that I have never truly wished harm to anyone, but these people do not deserve to live. Go read the article and you will see my point. I am afraid this time, I have no further words for you.

QADIYA, Iraq — In the moments before he raped the 12-year-old girl, the Islamic State fighter took the time to explain that what he was about to do was not a sin. Because the preteen girl practiced a religion other than Islam, the Quran not only gave him the right to rape her — it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted.

He bound her hands and gagged her. Then he knelt beside the bed and prostrated himself in prayer before getting on top of her.
