Under Real Life: "The pastor allegedly had even told her that "she was lucky not to have been born during Old Testament times when she would have been stoned to death"."

Um, no.

Deuteronomy 22:23-28. What it boils down to is that in Old Testament times, the rapist would have had to pay the girl's father a fine, and probably would have been stoned. If the girl was too scared/threatened to cry out during the event, she could have cried out for justice afterwards to the priest/judge class. She would only have been stoned if she was a willing participant -and this poor girl wasn't.

The pastor in that case was not only an enabling bastard, his selective interpretation was disgusting.
