Rape is a crime which, if evidence is present, deserves the death penalty, according to bible law – ‘If a man forces a woman, he shall die’.
This is an ugly and sad topic, yet needs addressing. When we obey the divine law, from which our precious common law is directly derived, a strong deterrent will prevent almost all of this vile behaviour.
But if a woman wears scanty seductive clothing and is found intoxicated outside a party at midnight, she puts herself at risk.
Prudence, sobriety, modesty and piety are a wiser course.
