That's a pretty interesting American Apparel ad to be running above an article about rape.

For a while, the residents of Manitoba Colony thought demons were raping the town's women. There was no other explanation.

I mean, apparently there WAS one other explanation.

No, no, it wasn't me, it was a ghost.. a spooky ghost, came right through.. e..ectoplasm!

That's pretty messed up. The ghost rapes weren't the worst of it either.

Well, yeah, now we know that.  But before, I mean, c'mon, ghosts was the obvious choice.

All religion is about men controlling women and getting access to their pussies in one way or another.  Some religions are a bit more suave about it than others.  Hey dont judge. Building relationships with women can be impossible for some men.  Far easier to just say "Jesus said to shut up and take your pants off biatch".   Or slip a roofie to a group and fark whoever you want and blame obama.

/jesus said to shut up and obey.

The more sexually repressed a society is the more perverse they tend to be when the curtain is pulled back.
High gay porn traffic from middle eastern countries that shun gays etc. Ultra conservative religions are some of the worst.

spraying the substance through the screens to drug entire families

How is it no one ended up dead? The dosage that would knock out an adult could easily kill a child.

If this story ends up being even remotely true researchers need to get working on this for use during hostage standoffs.

Why would they drug them senseless, and then bother tying them up? Not only were they evil, they were morons.

I was thinking about that. And how did they figure out how much was safe to use? Did they figure it out by trial and error? I'm betting that in the period that these rapes happened that their were a lot of people in that colony that "died in their sleep". And either these people don't know enough about how this spray works to tie the two together, or they don't want to acknowledge that it may be the case.

Who is saying that no one died? These communities are superstitious, controlling, god fearing and very, very insular. There could have been many deaths, blamed on demons, "god working in mysterious ways" and so on. It could very easily been kept hush hush, same as these rapes

I wonder if what went on there is at all atypical for other 'throwback' insular societies.  Groups that live cut off from the world, either by choice or circumstance, are going to by their very nature not attract a lot of media attention.  With tribal/village justice systems, a lack of any real law enforcement, and little in the way of investigative technology I wouldn't be surprised if similar situations aren't par for the course.

Assuming the entire story isnt bullshiat (I find it very believable), then if there was any amount of serious digging you would have two other questions that would need answers....

1.  Whats with all the dead kids that they chalked up to demon attacks?
2.  Why are all these 9-14 year old girls pregnant with jesus's babies?  (the 4-8 year olds are unlikely to be menstruating, so there's that)

Its probably not even the most farked up thing to happen this week.

Well, chlorofom as an anesthetic was invented in 1847.  So it probably meets the requirements for being allowed technology under the Amish Ordnung.

I've read nasty news reports about incest and rape the Amish hide and now about the Mennonites. And everyone forgives and forgives while the predators keep molesting and raping. I somehow think these Christian wacky groups were never wholesome. Just fearful and easily controlled. Now simpleminded and inbred.

That's very odd. I've been lurking for about that long and it's always been this way. Though I guess if you haven't yet moved out, we know which side you fall on.

In the article it does say that schisms are forming in the church there.  Multiple families have moved away and left that lifestyle, and there's even a family trying to start a competing reformed congregation within the community.

According to the guy starting the new church the current leaders aren't even basing their leadership on actual Christian teachings, just their own personal interpretations of select passages, and they even disallow bibles written in the only language the majority of the residents can read.

It's really more of a cult than anything else, but at least it seems that those who want to are free to leave.  If more light that gets shed on the sexual assaults and rapes and the more knowledge the residents are exposed to the greater the chance that larger numbers of them will choose to leave.  At a certain point the leaders of the community will have to face the choice of actually cracking down on what's going on or witness their community fall apart as everyone leaves.

Horrifying, but with a certain Epicness to it
I know you can't admit to a rape conviction in prison but this might be the exception.

'What you in for?'"
"Rape."
"Whoa, man, you can't say that in here.  Who did you rape?"
"An entire farkng town so back the fark up."

iheartscotch: Damn.

That's pretty messed up. The ghost rapes weren't the worst of it either.


The worst bits for those that didn't read it:

 1) Men can rape and commit incest as much as he pleases, if he gets caught says he's "sorry" and he's forgiven.

2) No follow-up care for victims, expect to forget and never speak about it again.

3) Girls are not taught the words for female body parts, making investigation and medical care difficult.

4) Girls aren't allowed to do math or bookkeeping.

The kicker: A woman who left was a victim of incest by her 8 brothers for as long as she can remember, no one does anything about it. However, when her husband buys a motorcycle the whole family gets shunned and kicked out of the colony.

Man are you kidding?  Rape the shiat out of an entire town for 2920 days straight, with no police or law enforcement at all, do whatever depraved ridiculousness you want to whomever you want, no crime scene processing, blood and semen flying every which way, and they all want to just forget all about it?  Worse caseis you repent to the priest and you take a couple weeks off from the church!  Fark that man I'm on the next plane over there!  YEEEHHAAWWWW
