This article by Dante Stewart is a must read:

“I remember when I thought that another person’s freedom and choices—particularly those of women, LGBTQIA+ people, poor people, and immigrants—meant my oppression and that person’s erasure meant my victory. I remember what it was like to ingest the toxic air of religious bigotry—creating enemies of women—hearing the words “baby killer” come out of the same mouth as someone who says “hallelujah.” These cultural wars (really, wars), that protect hatred and disregard the bodies and well-being of our neighbors, depend on our distance from the marginalized. They use the Bible as a weapon of power rather than an instrument of love.”

If your god requires that 10-year old girls carry their father’s child to term then your god is evil and should not be followed.
