“What does your religion teach about spousal rape?”

ask a religious scientist

Ernest Holmes, founder of Religious Science, taught that there is a Power that runs throughout the Universe, which is available to all. It is the Creative Power from which all comes and to which all returns. 

Our thoughts, words and actions utilize this power and are the cause with the result being the effect.

In the case of spousal rape the action (cause) is one of violence and the outcome (effect) multifaceted harm — physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual. It should be treated the same as any other form of rape, legally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.



Now it is time for us to join together and bring our strength to bear on the challenges that lie before us. I am sure we will do better this time.
