PRIMITIVE AMERICANS: IN EUROPE, RAPE IS A PLEASURE OF THE FLESH.

Gilles Savary, a member of the European Parliament who belongs to Mr. Strauss-Kahn’s Socialist Party, wrote on his blog that the arrest of Mr. Strauss-Kahn had hints of American-style hypocrisy. “Everyone knows that Dominique Strauss-Kahn is a libertine, and that he is distinguished from others by the fact that he doesn’t try and hide it,” he wrote. “In puritanical American, infiltrated by rigorous Protestantism, financial misdeeds are far more tolerated than pleasures of the flesh.”

Which isn't to say that rapists aren't admired and respected by many on this side of the Atlantic.  Even child molestation is praiseworthy, if the rapist sodomizes his victim artistically.
