Dealing with the root cause of rape culture

From the New York Times, a new policy is in place at the University of Virginia to prevent rape:

  • Under the agreement, at least three “sober and lucid” fraternity members will monitor behavior at parties where “jungle juice” and other potent alcohol punches will be banned along with beer in kegs. Guest lists are to be tightly enforced at the door. One monitor will be in charge of watching frat-house bedrooms with a set of keys to guard against sexual assaults.

Unfortunately, we are fighting at the edges and not dealing with the root cause of the problem: The Sexual Revolution.

If we’re serious about fighting rape culture, we need to deal with the real culprit: An attitude that refuses to accept any limits on sexual activity, especially the limits God has provided for us in His Word.

One thought on “Dealing with the root cause of rape culture

  1. “An attitude that refuses to accept any limits on sexual activity, especially the limits God has provided for us in His Word.”

    Some “limits”: kidnapping “brides” during wartime; rapists excused from punishment if they marry their victims and pay the victims' fathers 50 pieces of silver; polygamy and concubines by the hundreds; killing brides who aren't virgins, while philandering grooms get the usual free pass; a father who surrenders his virginal daughter to gang rape and murder, to save some strangers he thinks are “angels”–all approved by your “loving,” psychopathic god. As usual, your “Good Book” takes the moral low ground through a swamp of evil, treating women as disposable property.
