The Bible says if you look upon a woman with lust, you have already committed adultery and fornication in your heart. Whew! I’m safe on that one. Women from the Christian Taliban are handing out leaflets in Virginia to women they deem to be dressed in an “ungodly” manner. So outrageously unbelievable, they proclaim that victims of rape bring it upon themselves. My god. So, heterosexual men are predators who cannot control their lusts (heh, well, the religious ones, it seems) and it is all women’s fault for wearing ungodly clothing?
What is their excuse for the fact that 1-out-of-3 women in the U.S. Armed Forces report having been raped? Were they too sexy in those army fatigues? And, do they consider adult men the victims because they are helplessly driven to lustful insanity by the little girls they rape? Are little girls at fault, too? What about disabled and/or elderly rape victims?
Anyway, from the first link (emphasis added):
BRISTOL, Va. – Nineteen-year-old Keshia Canter handed three burgers, fries and milkshakes to a car-load of Tuesday afternoon customers at the Hi-Lo Burger’s drive-though window. A lady sitting in the backseat leaned forward, between the two men in front, and handed her a leaflet: “Women & Girls” it said across the top.
“Even though nothing is showing, you’re being ungodly,” Canter recalled the woman telling her. “You make men want to be sinful.”
Canter was wearing boots pulled up over jeans, a pink zebra-print shirt with a black jacket zipped up over it. She has blond hair, dark eye make-up and a little red lip ring. “I just asked if she needed any salt, pepper or ketchup,” Canter said. “I mean, how do I respond to that?”
Minutes later, Canter’s mother, Pam Yates, who owns the restaurant, returned from the bank. Canter handed her “Women & Girls” and Yates started reading.
“You may have been given this leaflet because of the way you are dressed,” it begins. “Have you thought about standing before the true and living God to be judged?”
It continues with one essential theme: The sins of men are, in part, the fault of women, specifically women in tight-fitting clothing. Yates was annoyed. Then she got to a section on page two:
“Scripture tells us that when a man looks on a woman to lust for her he has already committed adultery in his heart. If you are dressed in a way that tempts a men to do this secret (or not so secret) sin, you are a participant in the sin,” the leaflet states. “By the way, some rape victims would not have been raped if they had dressed properly. So can we really say they were innocent victims?”
The hand-out is signed “anonymous.”
Yates was angry.
.. unfuckingbelievable. This is a perfect example of why Christians are being mocked and derided, and looked upon as mentally deranged. Christianity = insanity. These revolting people are part of the rise of extremism wishing to institute Biblical Law™ into U.S. civil codes — the Christian version of Sharia Law: Dominion theology.
Democracy, freedom of religion, freedom from religion, a free society are the enemies of organized Christianity.
