You do realize the woman was only stoned for not being a Virgin? The price of a Virgin is usually 100 shekels which is why when a woman was raped the rapist had to give 50 shekels to make up for the rest in case a man finds another suitor for his daughter. Non virgins are 50 shekels. She’s not stoned if the man knows. However if she lied or her father lied then there is punishment
hey thanks for adding some information about this. when it comes to misogyny in the bible, many believers just go deaf, dumb and blind and try to avoid the topic. it should be obvious to any sane mind that the bible is nothing more than a book written by sick men trying to keep women under control and subjugated.
Because of the insistence of virginity before marriage, the custom used to be that new husbands would show off the bloodied sheets to family and friends after the couples’ wedding night to prove his wife was a virgin. But because a hymen can break from several different reasons women who feared they might not bleed would gouge their thighs with their nails so they would bloody the sheets and not be shunned or killed. Scary
horrifying indeed. the question is, where does this systematic oppression of women in almost every religion come from? those writers of the “holy” scriptures must have been somewhat insecure and weak characters, that they feared their women would seek sexual pleasures elsewhere. so they invented ridiculous laws justified by their fictional gods to keep the control in spite of their sexual impotence.
conclusion: the basis for religion are limp-dicked prophets!
(hahaha, sorry, not really a scientific analysis)
