The BBC last Tuesday got excited about two reports – one said that attitudes towards sex had become much more ‘fluid’- or, as we would once have said, more promiscuous. In short, lifelong faithful marriage is dead. One major BBC commentator openly expressed pleasure at one aspect of this report.
The other document said that gang-infested neighbourhoods are now seeing levels of sexual violence as bad as those in war zones. Girls as young as 11 are being raped.
Sue Berelowitz, the Deputy Children’s Commissioner, complained that many simply would not accept that this was happening, saying there was a long way to go ‘before the appalling reality of sexual violence and exploitation committed by children and young people is believed.’
There’s also a long way to go before people (especially the BBC) will see any connection between the state-sponsored destruction of strong married families, and the growth of gangs and the cruel exploitation of the young and weak. These follow naturally from our moral collapse.
