let's compare our response to rape then and now

"Rape Then and Now" (cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward) You've probably heard of this story where Bob Jones University told their rape victims that they needed to look for the root sin in their lives that caused it and repent. As the cartoon suggests, this is an old story and an old attitude. We know we still have a lot to learn when one of our leading Christian magazines, Christianity Today and their Leadership Journal, posted the "confession" of a statutory rapist that was full of self-justification and an obvious lack of understanding or ownership for the felonies. After much protest they finally removed the post and replaced it with an apology. It is agreed by many that we live in a rape culture. How are we trying to change this?
