If You’re a Woman, Don’t Take This Priest’s Advice…

At Christian Nightmares Too — a Tumblr featuring stories of bad experiences with Christian culture — writer Christina Fitzpatrick shares a horrific story about a priest who told her what she should do if she were ever chased by a rapist:

One spring morning, our teacher decided to address the girls in the class. He wanted us to know that if we were ever pursued by a rapist, we could kill ourselves to preserve our virginity, and God would not punish us. The ticket to hell would essentially be waived.

Believe it or not, there’s a happy ending to this story. It’s good to know that even some children are aware when a priest is talking out of his ass.
