I am confused. I read the info. you sent. Went to add my signature as I want to support and am asked to sign into my Facebook account rather than simply sign and support. I annoyed do it anyway. I then am asked to allow Causes to add my Birthday. I wanted to pass that step to SIGN YOUR PETITION to support as this was the point and am unable to do this unless I allow you to add my birthday?? I have now taken more of my time to deal with the Facebook thing and write this note rather than the whole original intention.

I tried to sign the second petition but kept being asked to 'submit a number' - What number? I didn't want to state my birthdate.

Elizabeth and Claire-Cecile, I'm sorry about the problem you've had signing in. I think Causes has made changes to their set up. But I will bring this to their notice. Could you please try to sign into your own facebook account and then click on sign? For those who are doing that it seems to be working.

yes that worked for me, but still I had to allow the site to use my birth-date info..

All I had to do was touch the "Sign the petition" bar in the email and that was it. Nothing about Facebook or my birthdate. Maybe try again with the email...?

Thank you for your kind reply and concern. I tried again 3x and same Facebook / causes requesting my b- day. Other things I have signed in the past I just click on sign the petition and that's it with a follow up thank you e - mail. Not sure why this is happening with this Cause.

To Nick Godwin - I was once asked to submit a number. I put in a random number and it worked! Don't ask!

rape is a horrible torture for any victim and the least solace she gets is when the accused is severely punished. She has to bear with the feeling of humiliation for a very very long period and more particularly when the rapist is/ are powerful people. Such rapists must be given exemplary punishments.

I believe that Rape is like an epidemic which needs to be treated as one before the root causes can be identified on a systemic basis and remedies introduced to mitigate the threats. Its doable if only the commoner believes that the sin is to be abhorred and not the sinner. Eradicate the sin!

Kurien, being in such a dignified position, was responsible for the security of that girl, and all the other girls... Can he justify this at all?? Torturing her for such a long time, let alone just the word "abuse"... Didn't any one of them even for a fraction of a second realize what they were doing??? Height of inhumanity!

I'm a surviving rape victim & it's something that's very hard to get through. Unfortunately, you take it with you where ever you go & who ever you're with. I believe all rapists & pedophiles should be castrated, tortured then killed.

I really support this cause for molesting a woman no matter how old she is , is the most sinful and cruel act of humanity.......

But in India we have a provision to hide behind political power - PJ Kurian, Kunhalikkutty are some examples!

Good ol' castration should do the trick, it will also work as a great deterrent and preventative.
