Catholic Church Says Child Rape Not Immoral

Due to the recent string of scandals plaguing the Catholic Church, Vatican Biblical scholars have been studying the Bible carefully to find out God’s opinion on rape. They can’t seem to find any passage which states or infers that child rape is a sin. Earlier this morning, the Pope met in a closed door session with the Creator of the Universe and God informed him that child rape is not immoral.

This is of course and April Fools story, but as a point of fact there is no passage in the Bible in which rape (child or otherwise) is considered a sin or immoral. A large number of Christians believe that morality is grounded in the arbitrary whims of God. With that in mind, if God were to state that rape (even child rape) was now moral it would simply be the case.

This is of course ridiculous. Everyone knows that rape (especially child rape) is immoral and wrong. No Biblical discovery or revelation from God would change that fact. Clearly morality is not grounded in God’s arbitrary whims, but grounded instead in the empathy and compassion of sentient creatures toward sentient creatures.

We all have an intuitive sense through our empathy and compassion that forcing sex on someone else especially a child is wrong. That intuition is a product of the brain which allows us to put ourselves in the place of the victim and to metaphorically, “feel their pain.” Interestingly enough, a recent study which appeared in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows that magnetic forces aimed in a certain spot of the brain can actually affect someone’s moral decisions. I guess we really do have a moral compass.

    Deuteronomy Chapter 22 deals with the subject of rape in verses 22-29. Basically it’s more about property claims on women than it is about how we would define rape these days, but the bible does at least address the topic somewhat.

      Very good, I stand corrected. If a woman is raped, the man who raped her should die because he damaged another man’s property (either the husband or the father). Of course if the person being raped was a boy and not a “damsel” then no sin was committed. Boys are not property. Catholic Church is still off the hook.

    You say this is an April Fools story, but I disagree. The Catholic Church’s cover-ups of serial molestations and shipping pederasts to other perishes tells a sad story of an organization with a long history of tolerating rapists and their multiple acts of rape. Their actions speak louder than all the papal proclamations ever enunciated in the Vatican Square. The Catholic Church does worse than proclaim child rape isn’t immoral. They have approved of and personally underwritten such acts. All the proof reasonable person should need that religion provides an excuse to act despicable without the threat of legal recourse. Where else could pedophiles hide in plain sight and sate their sick appetites with such zealous and unchecked wanton.

    Why would anyone believe these stories? Virtually everyone they trust believes them, including their families and the culture in which they live. The stories make them feel good and foster a sense of community with others who believe them. Perhaps the more interesting question is how we have been able to step outside the influence of these factors and examine the stories critically. How is it that we have been able to overcome the emotional attachment so many seem to have to these ancient tales?

    He just makes himself look bad by not actually addressing anything and resorting to childish name-calling. Obviously, he has no intellectual response to this post. If he did, he would have presented.
