Child abuse and the church.

Jul 14, 2015 by

by Andrew Symes, Anglican Mainstream. As past complicity with paedophilia is investigated, can the C of E still speak to the nation about sex? The new inquiry After two false starts, the long awaited independent inquiry into past cases of child abuse in England and Wales officially began at the end of last week. We know two things for certain: the inquiry is going to be very long, and very expensive; already people are questioning the breadth of scope, and the minimum £17.9 million cost. A...

Jul 14, 2015 by

by Damien McGuinness, BBC News: Some men who are sexually attracted to children would like help to change their condition but fear doctors will tell the police. In Germany, though, a campaign is under way to persuade them to sign up for confidential treatment, even if they have abused a child – and doctors are hailing it as a big success.

Another cover-up of gay abusers

Jun 16, 2015 by

By Bill Donohue, Catholic League: Bill Donohue comments on the resignation of St. Paul and Minneapolis Archbishop John Nienstedt: Both the New York Times and AP reported today that Archbishop Nienstedt protected a pedophile priest, Curtis Wehmeyer.

In the US the Supreme Court is studying whether to declare that access to marriage is a constitutional right for same-sex couples and in Ireland a referendum on amending the constitution will be held on May 22. The easy answer is, Not a bit. How could marriages between two gays or two lesbians possibly harm the...

The Wrong Kind of Rights: Same-Sex Marriage, Third-Party Reproduction, and the Sexualization of Chil...

May 5, 2015 by

by Jean Lloyd, Public Discourse: In our culture, there is a chasm between two irreconcilable conceptions of the meaning and purpose of human sexuality and equality. For children most of all, the wrong kind of sexuality and equality has devastating effects. […]  Ironically, it was at that same conference on sexuality research that I began to hear about a different kind of “children’s rights.” No, there was no mention of a right to a mother and a father. Nor was there any discussion of...
