Pat’s Ponderings — More Injustice

Source of Inspiration


I recently read an article about the increasing problem of children being stolen and sold into sexual slavery. As appalling an idea as this, for it seems the pinnacle of greed and total disregard for another, what followed was even more disturbing. The article went on to say that when these sexual slavery rings were discovered, the perpetrators were jailed…and so were the children who were charged with prostitution! As shocked as I was, I know that there are many instances where the victim of sexual crimes is treated abominably, e.g., rape victims. What kind of society punishes victims of another’s criminal action? What does this say about our cultural compassion, or lack thereof? How can we allow this to continue and still call ourselves civilized? Why is evil allowed to rule?
