No. But it's written in the Bible as part of Jewish history. Just because it's written there doesn't mean God approves of it. We must use our brains and know right from wrong. The instruction of St. Paul in his letters is more along the lines of moral teaching. The old testament is almost all history.
Did god approve of impregnating a preteen with his only begotten son?

Also, lol at the Bible as a history book.
