rude or nasty or anything...but just think about what you wrote. Put yourself in the shoes of a counselor, preacher, or religious guru who is
approached by someone (male or female) who has been raped. Better than that how about a close relative your daughter or son comes home bloodied and
DISGRACED and utters the words: "I was raped". Are you really saying that you would say bad things like this happen for a reasons involving karma? I
mean lets be real for just a minute here. Would YOU want to hear that after you were raped?
Karmic debt I swear thats the first I've heard of this. I don't even know if people think about what they type anymore or what. Commonsense...its
lacking. I tried not to go there but the ability for people to blame the rape victim always stuns me.

Please don't take this for anything more than what it is:
Actually I would think if one did believe in Kharma, then a rape during ones current lifetime would not be that unbelievable. If one really deeply
believed in a religion like Buddhism instead of Christianity they would most certainly have real fear of what they might have done in a previous lives
as well as what actions taken today could affect the next life or thereafter.
So as harsh and uncomfortable as it is to think about that statement, it is not totally without merit. Please try and remember that a large percentage
of the world is made up of people that are not Christians. Not that it makes them any more wrong or right in their assumptions and beliefs but it does
add as much validity to the statement as Christianity adds to the opposite.
Meaning just because it makes you uncomfortable to think about your actions having serious consequences in your life as opposed to believing that
simply asking for atonement admonishes you of your wrong doings, doesn't mean that considering that is not worth your time or automatically incorrect.
Also I am making a big assumption that you are from US and Christian, if not by definition at the very least in your morals and mores. I don't call
myself a christian but I was raised as one unwillingly and still am unable to shake some of the guilt and shame instilled in me some 30 years ago.
This isn't a personal attack or anything either I don't care if you are christian or not I am just trying to point out how this might be plausible to
more than the poster your are disgusted by.
