This is the leaflet that started RMA (Righteous Men Assembly) one year and a half ago. With help of friends from Vancouver Korean Presbyterian Church, we were able to print 20,000 leaflets along with glow in the dark bracelets (still in delivery). It would be a great time to reintroduce the leaflet and its message to you (in English, of course)
Hello my dear brothers, fathers, and leaders of the community. Our good culture is based on respect for one another and care for the majority rather than only for myself.
However, we have a shameful reputation of being horrible rapists around the world due to an estimated 1,5 million women and children getting raped each year in our land and most incidents of rape happens at home.
Rape causes deep damage to the victims and the prolonged pain and suffering is unimaginable to most of us. The scar stays with the victims just as the marks that we bare for our clans, but the only difference is that rape continually causes shame and anger in victims. We shouldn’t be surprised that our youth are so angry and reckless.
It has been said that ‘All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.’ We are not asking you to call the police on each other or pick up rocks to throw. We must educate other men so every man can understand what kind of suffering the rape is causing to all of us as a society and to the victims, and it is our responsibility to address our youth properly.
You are precious to Jesus. Let’s make it right.
