Hating For Jesus: You Deserve Rape!

April 26, 2013

In a stunning display of douchebaggery and Christian hate, Arizona student Dean Saxton held up this sign at a recent event to protest sexual violence against women:

Now, you would think that protesting sexual violence against women would be a no-brainer right? You would think that someone that supposedly organizes their morality around a book that says things like, “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another;” or, “We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death;” would have some small modicum of compassion. You would think that a “Christian” or any normal human being with some capacity for empathy would be able to see that rape or sexual violence is not the fault of those persons who have suffered at the hands of their perpetrators.

It’s hard to imagine how broken someone has to be to believe that an innocent woman is somehow responsible for being raped, or what sort of religious indoctrination they had to undergo to think that they “deserve it.”

I shake my head…

Dean Saxton, a junior at the University of Arizona, protested a campus sexual assault awareness event on Tuesday with a sign that read “You deserve rape.”

“If you dress like a whore, act like a whore, you’re probably going to get raped,” Saxton told the Arizona Daily Wildcat. “I think that girls that dress and act like it, they should realize that they do have partial responsibility, because I believe that they’re pretty much asking for it.”

Saxton, who is majoring in religious studies, often preaches on campus under the name “Brother Dean Samuel.”

The event Saxton opposed was “Take Back the Night,” a march by students to protest sexual violence against women.
