Rape: any act of sexual intercourse that is forced upon a person.
Steal: to take without permission or right, especially secretly or by force.
Commandment: Thou shalt not steal

As the act of rape generally implies taking one or all of the following: virginity, safety, sexuality, choice, or will, I would say it's covered pretty easily.

this makes me think of some book where this guys father said that the number 1 thing you should't do is steal. You steal when you take something from someone. When you kill someone, you are taking his life, and so on

I just remembered the book, it was titled The Kiterunner. This is the full quote, "Now, no matter what the mullah teaches, there is only one sin, only one. And that is theft. Every other sin is a variation of theft... When you kill a man, you steal a life. You steal his wife's right to a husband, rob his children of a father. When you tell a lie, you steal someone's right to the truth. When you cheat, you steal the right to fairness... There is no act more wretched than stealing, Amir."

That's really intelligent anon. Thank you for adding that insight to our discussion.

That's a big stretch...stealing typically refers to taking a physical object that belongs to someone. You can't "steal" someones safety in the traditional sense of the word steal. Rape can be covered if you want to stretch what the commandments literally say but the fact that you need to is pretty sad. Especially when the 5th says "The seventh day is the Sabbath, and on it you shall not work." There is a commandment that literally says don't work...but rape you have to work to cover that.

Read the definitions provided anon ... Stealing mentions nothing physical.
I'm not stretching, it's covered. By multiple commandments. I was merely using stealing because no one had used it yet and it would have been redundant to repeat another comment.

That's bending it way too far. If rape is supposed to go under stealing, then so should murder, and that would even make much more sense, since you're stealing one's life. That means "thou shalt not kill" is superfluous, right?

Not necessarily, although, I do see your point. I was merely trying to show that is covered by this commandment, as well as others that earlier commenters had pointed out.
