    Well it's a oddly framed fallacy of false cause with a feedback loop...

    If you tell these "counselor's" the are incorrect they are probably not going to believe it. If you do something horrible to them because of having this 'root sin' belief, perhaps they would look back at their own 'root sin' that caused the horrible event and then confirm their flawed belief.

    OR...

    The counselor is a moron who should be struck sharply upside the head several times with a cricket bat.

    ... Which may cause reflection on his 'root sin' and thus confirm his flawed logic...

    So going with this logic the rapist is just doing what god wants punishing the sinner. yes the rapist is sinning not the victim it is so stupid but typical conservative christian logic.
    this happens a lot in churches girls and woman are raped and they are blamed and get sent away while the rapist gets a slap on the wrist and just needs to repent.

    Does it count as sadistic to agree with the sentiments expressed in these posts? As in, agree enthusiastically, gleefully, happily, and wholeheartedly?

    If so, count me guilty as charged…...

    The problem with this guy is that he's in a position of authority, and yet somehow not compelled to investigate investigate the issue. Instead he blames the victims. I also doubt it's an isolated idiot.

    Shrink, I'm ashamed you'd say that.

    I figured you of all people would know that if you're gonna crack some skulls, you use a baseball bat. It's thinner, cylindrical shape doesn't meet as much wind resistance, which means you get a smoother, quicker swing. Plus the smaller focus of impact means you have a much greater chance of knocking them cross-eyed with a fewer amount of blows to the head.

    But "cricket bat" was funnier. And phunny is phunny.

    Also, from a physics viewpoint, a cricket bat offers an airfoil-type cross-section, which increases the mass behind the leading-edge, while maintaining the same drag profile, when held in edge-on striking position. So I question the whole "cylindricial superiority" premise.

    You can take sentimentality. I prefer efficiency. [​IMG]

    You might have a point, but hitting someone with the leading edge of a cricket bat requires a little more conscious thought to your aim, plus the extra weight means you have to apply more strength to each swing. The baseball bat nets better results with less effort, and is the better option for hitting moving targets.

    ----------

    Well, nothing's stopping you from being overly fancy with your head punching. A cricket bat isn't a bad choice, per se. It's just not as good in my opinion.

    If you're going for physical punishment, it should be a wiffle bat. He shamed the victims. Tell me, would you really want to tell anyone you were beaten up with a wiffle bat? I assure you the victim shaming would stop at that point.

    "Where'd you get all those welts from, Bob"?
    "I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT"!

    ...but the question is, will a whiffle beating make them cross-eyed?

    The last thing I remember that rape is serious charge that results into pound me in the butt prison for a long time. Where are the police reports? Where are the convictions?
