Wait, what?

Our culture of purity celebrates the Virgin Mary … as a rape victim that hurts her. Yeah, this does not compute.

Clearly this poor woman (who is a reverend, no joke) has survived something awful, but to imply ‘church culture’ is to blame for hurting her? This is just garbage. From her “opinion piece”:

Church culture tends to be fixated on sexual purity year-round, but during Advent, I’m tempted to blame it on the Virgin Mary. After all, she set an impossibly high bar. Now the rest of us are stuck trying to be both a virgin and a mother at the same time. It does not seem to matter that this is biologically impossible. Can you at least try?

Really lady?

Not to mention actual rape survivors who may find such a correlation not only ridiculous, but painful.

Anything to be outraged these days … unbelievable.

Oppression Olympics indeed.

And she’s a reverend, let that sink in.

What better time of year to blame Virgin Mary for rape victims feeling badly … you can’t make this tripe up.

Well, apparently you can because this woman did, and WAPO posted it.
