In the land where Consent is the Sole Criterion of the Good, it’s just a matter of time before our sexually libertine Chattering Classes make this move. Shows and characters like this help to soften the ground, just as the endless tide of sympathetic portrayals of abortion, euthanasia and homosexuality softened the ground for our present acceptance of these things.
The amazing thing will be when the day comes that our Chattering Classes and Manufacturers of Culture simultaneously celebrate pedophiles, condemn the Church for not protecting children from pedophiles, *and* condemn the Church for condemning pedophilia. The Church, actually having a body of moral teaching its members can betray, can always be arraigned because its members are sinners. That’s easy peasy. The really amazing thing is how the world, having no principles beyond expedience, can simultaneously celebrate and condemn moral acts depending on how useful it is in attacking the Church. And we are suckers for it due to concupiscence, unless we are strengthened by grace and rooted in the teaching of the Church.
Vice is a monster of so frightful mien,
As to be hated needs but to be seen;
Yet seen too oft, familiar with her face,
we first endure, then pity, then embrace. – Alexander Pope
Read the whole thing and ask yourself… can pedophile parades be far behind?
