A Nigerian lady, @Ulomareen, is facing heavy criticism on Twitter over a tweet she shared about God ordering and supporting rape in the Bible.
The lady, who is one of the most outspoken Nigerian feminists and a perceived atheist, had tweeted a question for Christians, asking them why they refuse to accept that God sanctioned rape in the old testament.
She wrote: "Why do Christians find it hard to accept that their God ordered and supported rape in the Bible? Like, all those times he sent the Israelites to war and ordered them to kill all the non-virgins and take the virgins for themselves, what exactly do you think that was? Consent?"
Her tweet has generated reactions from many other Twitter users, most especially Christians who have cursed her for blaspheming against God.
Others, who have been more lenient with her, have called her ignorant, claiming that she doesn't understand the Bible; hence, her post.
There have, however, been some support groups who have rated her post as correct and defended her from the cyber-attacks she has got. Below are some of the reactions to the tweet.
