Following the first law of modern journalism – never let the facts get in the way of a good story – the mainstream media is gleefully pouncing on the UN report, issued last week, that has repeated one of their favourite anti-Catholic themes: that the Vatican did nothing but wink while local bishops pushed clerical pedophiles from parish to parish, allowing them to reoffend with impunity.
The solution offered to the Catholic Church by the Committee on the Rights of the Child just happens to be exactly the program the modern secular media has supported since about 1965: to get on board with the general frenzy to promote and normalize homosexuality, cohabitation, abortion, contraception and sexual activity outside marriage by minors… the whole of the Sexual Revolution’s repertoire. Oh, and drop all that “organized religion” stuff, while you’re at it. This, the UN’s Committee said, is what is needed to prevent children and young people from being victims of sexual abuse…somehow.
