I've been in this argument with these guys before. They cite all kinds of descriptions of rape and bad happenings in the Bible, but fail to believe that there are many descriptions of terrible sins that occurred in the Bible, yet were not an endorsement of these actions. Then they will argue that it's just disrespectful to describe such disgusting things in a true holy book, which is where they come in and tell you that the Bible is corrupted and isn't true and is all screwed up by interpretations and that they have the only untainted book-- the Koran.
