Again, I’ve been on sabbatical far too long. I’m back now and wasting no time. This insightful blog comes to us from The Official Website of Michael Crook. (I haven’t found his unofficial site yet, but it must have some real blockbusters.) Lest you think that this was just one of his off-moments where he was drunk out of his gourd or worse, he tells us “When this Mormon writer indites, the thinking has been done!” Converting his Java Script took some time, but I didn’t want to be accused of quoting him out of context.
Video: Michael Crook’s opinions on rape
In this 2007 video, I share my thoughts on rape. I want to make it very clear that both sides have a responsibility. Apart from the fact that sexual relationships should be reserved for marriage, women have a responsibility to say no, and men have a responsibility to respect a woman’s wishes and not force the issue.
However, I also believe that a woman should not use rape as buyer’s remorse, and I also believe that a woman should fight to the death defending her virtue, if in fact she does not consent to the sexual contact. If she doesn’t do so, then I would call her motives into question.
As Latter-day Saints, we are taught that a “victim” must do all they can to stop the situation, and assess whether they had any responsibility, which in my opinion would cover women who consent and then hurl rape allegations because of buyer’s remorse.
The prophet Spencer W. Kimball wrote a book, called “The Miracle of Forgiveness.” One one of the things that he wrote in that book was this: “…in a forced contact such as rape or incest, the injured one is greatly outraged. If she has not cooperated and contributed to the foul deed, she is of course in a more favorable position. There is no condemnation where there is no voluntary participation. It is better to die in defending one’s virtue than to live having lost it without a struggle.”
The bold emphasis is mine. Indeed, if a woman cries that she was raped, she is alive, and that means she did not defend her virtue to the end. Thus, there was no rape, only at best buyer’s remorse.
I would also add that while women have a responsibility to say no, as opposed to crying “rape” later, men have a responsibility to not exercise unrighteous dominion over, or pressure a woman into sexual activity.
However, the woman must accept the responsibility to fight, even to the death, rather than accepting so-called “victimization.” To do anything less is, as Kimball would say, “voluntary participation.”
As I watched the video, I thought to myself, “Now that’s the way a thoughtful zombie should look.” Face it — women and girls are asking to be raped, as unequivocally proven by official statistics pulled straight from his Mormon ass. Often they do this by enticing perverts with their brightly colored burkas when they know they should be wearing the basic black. This, and other subtle cues scream to people like Crook, “Rape me. Please. Pretty please with sugar on it.” As Prophet Spencer W. Kimball seems to think, rape and incest are merely contact sports. Yes, invariably, the woman is to blame, and sharia law recognizes this by corporal punishment of any woman brazen enough to report a rape. Mr. Crook, you’re practicing the wrong religion.
