Lately in the news, there have been too many incidents of women and children being raped. The poor woman in Lybia whose story was able to be told before she was taken to prison. She is now being sued for being raped. The 14 year old girl who was lashed to death for “adultry” – she was raped by her cousin. Under Sharia law, she should be lashed 101 times. The millions of children abused by fathers in the Catholic church. The 11 year old girl who was gang raped by 15 men in Texas. She and her family are now in protective custody because they keep getting death threats.
These are the stories that are told. Statistically, 1 in 4 women have been sexually assaulted, though some say this is higher. I in 8 men have been sexually assaulted. That number is also, most likely, higher.
My question is, what on earth is wrong with us? This is a problem that exists all over the world, in all religions. I am so heartbroken for all these women and children.
