The day is coming when the Church will be despised, not for allowing sexual abuse of minors, but for forbidding it.
What is necessary for the cultural change? Well, money and power coupled with the endless appetite for perversion among our elites, of course. It was one thing for the BBC to fake concern about sexual abuse of minors when it made a great story against the Papists. Good British tradition that.
But when BBC darling Jimmy Savile was the perv? Well, the Beeb took good care to cover that up in ways that many a bishop could have learned from. And now the next phase of the UK elite’s evolution on this subject appears:
The age of consent for sex should be lowered to 13 years-old to end the ”persecution of old men” in the wake of the Savile sex abuse scandal, a leading barrister has claimed.
Of course! Concern about sexual abuse is *persecution of old men* now that the BBC’s star has fallen! Brilliant! Why didn’t the bishops think of that!
And since the Beeb controls the means of public discourse, it will be interesting to see how far the Ruling Class in the Country that Used to be England can propagate this utterly brazen new meme.
So far, the combox comments are running heavily against this revolting new lie. But the campaign of Newthink on the matter is its infancy. Let’s see where things stand in a few years after a steady campaign of massaging public opinion has been brought to bear on the matter.
