For the last three years, I have been observing attitudes, listening to opinions and reading blogs/comments about perpetrators and their victims. When did someChristians (of all denominations) reduce themselves to being rape apologists and protectors of rapist/pedophile’s sentiments? When did the private and personal healing balm of forgiveness come to be used as a weapon of inducing guilt in the victim, an instrument of silencing the victim? “He that is without sin, cast the first stone” is being used indiscriminately,over the Internet, to silence the uproar against such crimes. Random quotes from The Bible are being bandied about, which not being in context, have resulted in negative imagery of Jesus and have made Him the butt of ridicule. The poem that follows, comes from deep within my being, (and while not being about you or me) speaks up for the voiceless victims the world over, past, present and future.
