Knife crime is at epidemic proportions in Britain’s inner cities, with an attack of some kind taking place every four minutes. In London alone 21 young people have been stabbed to death this year.
A church group has come up with a new solution. It’s reported here. The suggestion is that church leaders should move into crime ridden inner city areas to work with the youths and become role models since most of the boys who stab each other don’t have Dads.
Whoops! problem is, since women’s ordination the Anglican Church has been turned into a matriarchy remember? Nearly half of Anglican clergy are now female. Besides, the whole church for the most part, has turned its back on patriarchy in favor of feminism.
One thing the report does have right: the anarchy and youth violence in our inner cities is linked to the breakdown of the family. What nobody is daring to say is that the breakdown of the family is linked with contraception, abortion, divorce, promiscuity, homosexuality and feminsim. You can’t have it both ways: first you emasculate the men, kick out the fathers, get rid of patriarchy, feminize the faith, then you wring you hands saying, “Oh dear! the young men are so nasty and violent! They should have positive role models! I wonder if those fathers we got rid of are in the attic, and can be dusted off?”
Historically, the Anglo Catholics were the ones who went into Britain’s inner city slums, but those who have not already pulled out are about to. The Catholics didn’t need to go into the inner city slums. They were already there.
The report also admires Catholics, recognizing the example of the Catholic priests who have moved into the slums in South American cities and got their hands dirty with the roughest and poorest of humanity. Could the positive role models of these courageous priests have anything to do with the fact that the Catholic Church reserves the priesthood to men?
