1- You can see clearly in this misTafsir of the Secular and Liberal Muslims an astonishing similarity with ISIS and other extremist groups with regards to the methodology they employed in reading the text of the Quran and Sunnah, clearly both used the same unacademic, out of context, cherrypicking and incomprehensive reading of the sacred texts. We can say either the liberals employed Tafsir Daeshiy or Daesh employed Tafsir Libraliy.
2- Ask any lay Muslim who actually have read the whole Quran, with technology they would easily quote you these three verses. Does these verses sound like a prohibition of rape? :
إِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ شَهْوَةً مِّن دُونِ النِّسَاءِ ۚ بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ مُّسْرِفُونَ
“Verily, you practise your lusts on men instead of women. Nay, but you are a people transgressing beyond bounds (by committing great sins).” (7:81)
أَئِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ شَهْوَةً مِّن دُونِ النِّسَاءِ ۚ بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ تَجْهَلُونَ
“Do you practise your lusts on men instead of women? Nay, but you are a people who behave senselessly.” (27:55)
أَتَأْتُونَ الذُّكْرَانَ مِنَ الْعَالَمِينَ وَتَذَرُونَ مَا خَلَقَ لَكُمْ رَبُّكُم مِّنْ أَزْوَاجِكُم ۚ بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ عَادُونَ
“You go in unto the males of the ‘Alamin (mankind), and leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your wives? Nay, you are a trespassing people!” (26:165-166)
3- The wife of Lut a.s and the people of the city were punished due to their complicity and tacit approval of the crimes, it is that simple, really.
4- The word ‘transgression’ (عادون and مسرفون) in the verses encompasses both sexual and non-sexual sins which includes rape as well as consensual sodomy and lesbianism. There is no evidence whatsoever to exclude consensual sodomy from the transgression of the people of Lut a.s, in the contrary, the textual, thematic as well as semantic evidences actually point to it as being one of the main reason that led to their destruction.
وَلُوطًا إِذْ قَالَ لِقَوْمِهِ أَتَأْتُونَ الْفَاحِشَةَ مَا سَبَقَكُم بِهَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ مِّنَ الْعَالَمِينَ إِنَّكُمْ لَتَأْتُونَ الرِّجَالَ شَهْوَةً مِّن دُونِ النِّسَاءِ ۚ بَلْ أَنتُمْ قَوْمٌ مُّسْرِفُونَ
“And (remember) Lut (Lot), when he said to his people: “Do you commit the worst sin such as none preceding you has committed in the ‘Alamin (mankind and jinn)?
“Verily, you practise your lusts on men instead of women. Nay, but you are a people transgressing beyond bounds.” (7:80-81)
5- The liberals were known to oppose literal reading of texts, but in this case it appears that they will only accept the criminal status of sodomy when there is a clear cut prohibition laid down in a verse with an explicit description of the act. Again, Tafsir Daeshy at work.
