Last week, the good people at OnePeterFive were gracious enough to publish an article I wrote entitled Pornography and the Prophet: Islam, Feminism and the Myth of the "Willing Whore." In the article, I discuss the very real threat that unregulated immigration from Muslim countries represents to European women. If you haven't read it, you can do so here.

I admit that, after having done a fair amount of research for the article, I have become more sensitive to the issue than I was before. But I don't go scouring the internet for stories which might substantiate my findings. Nonetheless, when they pop up in my news feed or Twitter timeline, I pass them along. Today, I started re-tweeting them with the hashtag #ShariaRape. This made me aware of just how many cases there are right now. These all appeared within the space of an hour:

I'm not a hashtag activist or whatever, I just decided to start indexing cases to make it easier to find them in the future. If you're on Twitter, please consider doing the same. If there is any kind of response, I might do a follow-up story in the future.


  1. Hey Radical Catholic, I apologize for being off topic, but I was hoping to get in contact with you via email. I wanted to ask you a question, since you seem well informed and trustworthy on matters of faith and morals.

    Though I suppose I can ask it here. I finished reading one of your articles on occasions of sin and was interested in knowing more about it. Are they permanent, meaning that if you sinned frequently with this person or that place, that it is forbidden for that individual for the rest of his/her life? The article would indicate that that might be the case, since actively seeking these occasions (even if one does not succumb to the temptation) is gravely sinful. I need guidance on this issue and would like your input! Please write back soon if you can.

  2. Occasions of sin are not permanent per se, but typically partake of the habitual nature of the related vice and/or sin. In other words, they can be overcome, with the grace of God, so that a particular person, place or thing no longer represents an occasion of sin for us. The sin of actively seeking out such occasions resides in our desire for the sin to which the occasion leads us, not in the occasion itself.

    Hopefully that helps. If it's not specific enough, I suggest that you talk to a reliably orthodox priest.

    Thanks for reading, and God bless.

  3. Thank you for the speedy reply. It was very helpful.

    God bless.
