‘None of which are Orthodox Biblical doctrines.’

perhaps; but they all were common practices that were understood to be divinely justified...

Well, we can address the points.

Rape was condemned by God and the rapist got the death penalty.

NEVER condoned. It is a misrepresentation of orthodox Biblical doctrines that rape was condoned.

Slavery was controlled and restricted by God.

Just like when Jesus said that God allowed divorce because of the hardness of men’s hearts, God never intended for mankind to enslave anyone else, but knowing that it would happen, He put serious restrictions on it.

Genocide is a false claim.

God brought judgment on the nations around Israel which practiced ritual child sacrifice. Those peoples burned their infants newborns alive to the god Molech.

God NEVER just randomly eradicated people but always gave them time to repent and forsake their evil practices. They didn’t. the only recourse was to bring judgment on them.

And for the people who get all hot and bothered by that, there are two points to consider. One is that if God did NOT judge them, then it would be a travesty of justice against the babies and other human sacrifices that were made.

The other is that if any one of us knew that our next door neighbors were torturing and sexually busing their children, we would be remiss and complicit in NOT doing something to stop it.

Not acting to stop atrocity is by one’s silence condoning it.

The only way for those practices to stop was eradication of the nations that participated in it.

They were not killed because of who they were for conquest, merely for a land grab, nor capriciously. They were brought to justice for human sacrifice by burning their victims. alive.
