No matter what your religion, raping a child is wrong !

No matter what your religion, raping a child is wrong !

Now let me state this clearly and loudly, having sex with a child under the age of consent is RAPE !
If you have married them or not, it does not matter.
If they are under the age of consent, it is RAPE !

We have all heard about reports of child “marriages”. When it hits the news there is the usual tirade of “these people” and “not like us” but let me tell you, marrying children off to older partners, who then rape them, has nothing at all to do with any religion.

Stop hiding behind the false guise of religion and say it like it is….. Pathetic child rapists using religion as an excuse for their own sick perversions.

Make no mistake about it, every single religion has their own version of this, hence why we can say confidently that it has nothing to do with a particular religion.

In America there are entire cities set up and run by polygamists, who believe in multiple brides for men. They also believe in marrying their girls off at very young ages, often starting as young as 10 years old. These people call themselves “Christian” yet Jesus Christ their very own savior said in Mathew 18:6 “But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea” . Does this sound like a man who is approving of child rape ?

Soldiers in Afghanistan talk about seeing very young girls married off to much older men all the time. They were told it is just part of the Muslim faith, but after speaking to several local leaders in the Islamic community FACAA have been told that it is most certainly NOT a part of their faith. There are passages where the Prophet marries a young girl but it is well recognized among Clerics that this was a sign of the times back then and is not an excuse to marry children now. The Islamic faith speaks very clearly on adherence to the laws of the land, so to say that the faith itself approves of child marriage is a lie. A religion that adores children and deplores harming them is being used to blame for child rape by those who are obviously only in it for their own sick means.

The Jewish Torah has many passages about how wrong it is to abuse children, it is considered one of their worst Mitzvahs to abuse children in a sexual manner. Yet we hear time and time again about Orthodox Jews marrying underage brides often in arranged marriages. Senior Rabbi Yosef Feldman said before the Royal Commission, that those who have raped children deserve leniency and shouldn’t be made to feel like “the scum of the earth” despite the fact that his own religious text the Torah speaks incredibly poorly of those who have raped children. Once again a child abusers use the excuse of religion as a guise to hide behind for their own sick crimes.

In Bangladesh, there are entire hindi suburbs dedicated to child prostitution, yet the Hindu faith teaches that Parents and Teachers are next to god because they are the protectors and guides of children who are the very future of the faith. Yet once again people have perverted a very peaceful religion and used it to hide behind with their sick cowardly practices of child rape.

We could go on and on and on naming all the major and minor religions and giving examples of practioners who have used it to hide behind while they raped and abused children all in the name of a god or gods who would be outraged and vengeful of their sick actions (and we hope are rather vengeful when they are standing before them).

At the end of the day it is not the fault of the religion that these monsters abuse children, sadly the religion is used as the fall guy, as the patsy, as the excuse for their pathetic choices. But make no mistake about it, no religion and no god approves of, condones, or even does not hate the raping of children. What religion or god could possibly think that the destruction of the very future of the species they created could be a good thing.

Stop letting people hide behind religion, stop letting them off the hook by blaming their god or their religious text for the abuse of innocence. It is not the fault of the religion, it is not the fault of the biblical scripts, it is however the fault of the person abusing the children ! It is their fault and their fault alone ! Not the religion’s fault, not the bible/Qur’an/Torah/Veda/Scroll/Dhammapada/whatever, certainly not the fault of any god/gods/goddesses/deity . No god would ever approve of child rape !
Stop letting abusers off the hook, stop letting people blame their faith because none of them say that child rape is ok, not a single one !

Here’s a good read. The post is on my page. Thanks………..Protecting a child after disclosure
Child Abuse Medico-Legal ServicesΒ·Tuesday, September 26, 2017
A scenario that plays itself out almost every time a child visits the Sexual Assault Clinic, is the self-blame and dis-empowerment the parents and the child victim experience.
Whether you are in a normal or dysfunctional family, it is almost impossible to protect your child 24/7. We live in a world where evil is looking for any opportunity to hurt the ones we love. This realization that even the best parent cannot always protect his/her family, is the first step to healing after a child disclosed abuse.
The next very important step is for parents to act strong and not fall apart. A child victim’s experience of the abuse if often drawn from the parent’s reactions. Almost every abused child we encountered at the Clinic, experiences an unbelievable amount of guilt. When a child sees the parent’s horror, anger, crying and often times distraught reaction, to the child’s disclosure, the child’s response is that she* must have done something heinous and caused this reaction. The child might feel that she is a huge disappointment. Often parents will react with anger in saying β€œwhy did you not tell me before, that this was happening?!” or even β€œI told you never to allow anyone to touch your private parts!” Parent need to act strongly and need to ensure their own reactions is under control.
No matter how angry or distraught a parent is, remember that the abuse happened to the child, not the parent. The parent is placed in a position of protecting the child against any secondary abuse. Out-of-control parents cause secondary abuse. It is of the utmost importance that the child is assured of the parent’s unconditional love, support and assistance throughout the process that follows disclosure. The parent should be constantly praising the child for her bravery to disclose and for telling the truth. The parent should, as often as possible, assure the child that she is not to blame and did nothing wrong. At no time, never ever, must a parent doubt the child’s truthfulness. Even if after all investigations may find that the child was lying about the abuse. It must be noted however, that children very seldom lie about abuse and that there are reasons why children might lie about it.

The biggest hurt is not the abuse but the fact that a parent did not believe the child

A parent should encourage the child to openly communicate her feelings to them. Use this opportunity to strengthen rather than destroy the relationships in your family. Encourage the child to participate in the process, although often times scary and overwhelming to everyone involved. By allowing the child to consent and participate in the process, gives the child a sense of control over her emotions, body and situation. Never threaten a scared child, rather take the time and explain that everyone involved in the process is on her side and forms part of the β€œteam” to help her through a very unfamiliar and scary process.
Parents should seek help. Depending on the emotional baggage each parent is already burdened with, the disclosure of the abuse of a child will hundred times multiply the weight of it. Situations that parents could normally deal with in a civil manner becomes impossible to deal with and can cause irreparable damage to any relationship and self-worth. Fathers especially, suffer under self-blame because they could not protect a child and often see counselling as admitting to defeat and a sign of being emasculated. It must be remembered however, that no parent is prepared for the emotional turmoil that a child’s disclosure of abuse can cause. Counselling empowers a parent to understand their own reactions better and gives parents the tools to support the child throughout the process without falling apart.
* Sadly, boys are known to experience abuse different than girls and is less likely to disclose abuse because male victims of sexual abuse believe β€œreal men do not cry”.
