A priest, Rev. Canon James Rutaraaka, of West Ankole Diocese quoted a biblical scripture: 1 Corinthians 7: 3-5 to make his case against marital rape.
"Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency".
