Military rape trend should be no surprise

America continues to allow patriarchal politicians and corporate executives to trump our Constitution with their patriarchal religion. They claim to serve Jesus, while, indeed, they serve the patriarchal god of lust, greed and arrogance – in other words, themselves.

In 2012, we were treated to a full election year of the Republican claim that rape was a gift of God. Do we really wonder why our military organization, specializing in violence, has increased incidences of accepted rape? Duh.
