Another reason why Christians are seen as the bad guys.

Between groups like the Westboro Baptist Church asshats, the nutcases behind World Net Daily, and the Catholic Church in general, the image of Christians in the minds of a lot of people can end up pretty tarnished.

But you don’t have to be a part of an organized group to help contribute to the your religion’s image problem. You can be like Dean Saxton and just go around holding up a sign that says ‘You Deserve Rape’:

Dean Saxton — also known as Brother Dean Samuel — regularly preaches on the UA Mall in front of Heritage Hill and the Administration building. On Tuesday, his sermon drew the attention of onlookers, several of whom either personally confronted him or complained to the Dean of Students Office.

Saxton, a junior studying classics and religious studies, said his sermon was meant to convey that “if you dress like a whore, act like a whore, you’re probably going to get raped.”

“I think that girls that dress and act like it,” Saxton said, “they should realize that they do have partial responsibility, because I believe that they’re pretty much asking for it.

Ah, the classic asshat tactic of blaming the victim. Those poor men. So tempted by the slutty sluts who dress in a manner Brother Dean finds inappropriate that they just can’t help themselves. If women would just dress the way Saxton thinks they should then rape would probably disappear completely! You gotta admire a man who is so confident in his beliefs that he’ll shout them from the rooftops no matter how much it offends the folks he’s trying to win over.

Jesus loves you, Brother Dean, but everyone else thinks you’re an asshole.

  1. Oh, I love him, too — at as great a remove as possible, and with the fervent wish that he’d get some professional help.

  2. It’s pure entertainment when the ignorant come out to (dis)play. I don’t understand this type of mindset and I don’t want to waste any time trying.

  3. Enlarged the pic and read the other signs, glad I did, good to see it was just one numpty promoting rape.

    Urban dictionary:
    1. Numpty
    Scottish usage:
    a) Someone who (sometimes unwittingly) by speech or action demonstrates a lack of knowledge or misconception of a particular subject or situation to the amusement of others.
    b) A good humoured admonition, a term of endearment
    c) A reckless, absent minded or unwise person
    a) “No. That wisnae wit she meant, ya big numpty!”
    b) i.e. “Silly billy”, “You big dafty”
    c) “That numpty’s driving with no lights on!”

  4. I’m in Canada, West coast – Vancouver Island.
    I’m a Christian. I’d dearly love to cross paths with someone like that.
    I’d explain to him that behaving like an asshole attracts fists to his face.
    Then I’d break his nose, and apologize and ask my “brother’s” forgiveness.

  5. Breaking his nose would just give him reason to claim persecution without any sense of irony. Besides, I wouldn’t want to stoop to his level.
