If the New York Times is right, then defending Islam is defending Rape as a religious rite.

In an extensive report, the New York Times detailed the theologically-grounded regime of rape and sexual slavery of the Islamic State group, which has taken over large areas of Iraq and Syria and extended its tentacles into other areas of the world. The jihadist group revived slavery last year, finding justification in the Quran and shariah law. They cite the Prophet Muhammad and his companions, who held slaves.

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.

When it was over, he knelt to pray again, bookending the rape with acts of religious devotion

So when Obama defends the religion of Islam, which evokes its adherence to the Quran, is he not also defending their religious rite of rape?
