For anyone confused about the religious and social dynamic that caused me to think of killing myself in the incident recounted in this post, read John Shore's "Pastor to Rape Victim: He should have killed you. At least you'd have died a virgin."  My upbringing was Roman Catholic, not fundamentalist Protestant, but at that time the mindset towards women and rape victims was the same.

God help us all, but that young woman most especially.
