MacG sent a notice to me that I would like to share with you. If you live in the Marin area, his church is screening a movie that sounds important, although deeply saddening:
On Sunday the 24th, 5PM @ New George’s downtown San Rafael my church, Hillside Marin (based in Corte Madera), will be showing Trade of Innocents. We are doing so raise awareness of this devastating underage sex ‘trade’ and it is, as I understand it is also occurring right here in the USA.
If you don’t live near MacG’s church (which I’ve attended and can assure you is filled with very nice people), please keep your eye open for this film, or talk to your own church, synagogue, mosque, community center, parent group, etc. about screening this film. Bad people have traded in sex since the dawn of time, but it seems worse lately.
Just today, I did a post at Mr. Conservative that sounds rather shrill — Ten Horrifying Stories of Muslims Gang Raping White Woman — but it’s actually not overblown. If anything, it’s underblown. It took me less than 20 minutes to find those stories. I composed a Bing search: “gang rape muslims ______.” In the blank, I simply inserted country names (Germany, England, Sweden, Norway, Holland, etc.) and came up with hundreds of stories. Many of the stories involve gang rape as an instrument of power in the sex trade. In a world where sex is a commodity and where stable, two-parent homes are vanishing, young girls are easy prey for men who offer them compliments and drugs. And then the girls are gang-raped, demoralized, blackmailed, and trapped in brothels.
It’s not just Muslims, of course. Wherever there’s poverty and disenfranchisement — whether the former Soviet Union, Mexico, India, or Thailand — the sex trade flourishes. The world must stand against it as firmly as it did against racial slavery in the late 18th and first half of the 19th centuries.
