Chris Stefanick states on this YouTube Video these facts:
You are not alone. One in six women have been raped. Over 10 % of girls have had sexual abuse, before graduating from high school and over 4% of guys. Get a professional counselor, a good ethical counselor. People, who have been abused, are 3x more likely to be depressed, 6x more likely to have PTSD, 13x to more likely to drink, and 6x more likely to use drugs. It’s not a wound you can pray away, or just get over. These folks try to “medicate” their wounds. Don’t. Get help. There is no shame in saying, my life is out of control. If you haven’t faced this wound, you must. It won’t heal unless you deal with it.
My Two Cents Worth
My grandma was raped at 15, by a stranger. Her family helped her get through it. My grandpa met my grandma 6 years later, and married her. Grandma was not a sad-sack. She was a strong woman. I look up to her. RIP Grandma. So, seeing a woman getting raped, by two men, in some sicko’s idea of revenge online …. does not turn me on …. it makes me angry. Very angry. I think men or women who “get off” on seeing a man, woman or child getting raped ….. is absolutely insane. Very, very insane.
" The “door of faith” (Acts 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. It is possible to cross that threshold when the word of God is proclaimed and the heart allows itself to be shaped by transforming grace. To enter through that door is to set out on a journey that lasts a lifetime." Benedict XVI
