Pretty sure every other religious text has the same bullshit, it's just worded differently.

The difference is the koran was written by the founder of islam, so you can't really modernize it without saying that mohammed wasn't a prophet.

Every other major religion has undergone a reformation which purged it of almost all that crap.

The Quran is medieval, most other religious texts are much older, from antiquity, and even they are far less murdery and rapey. Then again, not many religious texts were written about warlords.

An example being that the Quran says it's ok to rape your enemies stolen wives in front of their own husbands/families, provided they not members of Islam.

Have you read the bible? The Israelites massacred dozens of tribes. There is plenty of rape in the bible too.

They're all equally vicious texts.

Not necessarily, some have it, others have it but don't follow it anymore.
