Study Finds Pornography Destroying a Generation of Youth
According to police reports over the past three years, a new study finds over 5,000 offences of under-18-year-olds commit child sexual abuse. The findings received from probation inspectors in February 2013 found police, social workers and teachers were missing the warning signs that a child may sexually offend. The study concludes pornography & sexual promiscuity are destroying a generation of young people.
The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) is reporting that from 2009 to 2012 over 5,000 sexual assaults in England involved a child perpetrator raping or sexually assaulting another child. Of the cases reported, 98 percent of the perpetrators were boys, 20 percent of the victims were a family member, and one third of the victims were a family friend.
From the youngest age, children mimic what they see. If they see sex acts, many children naturally practice...
I agree, Anne. I always find it very difficult to read too deep into articles like this. They are very real, but often too disturbing for me to finish. Recently, near me, a man killed a woman and then raped her poor little 10 year old daughter. The man was caught and is in jail awaiting trial, etc. The prisoners he was initially jailed with got word of what he was in for and they beat him up pretty good. Now he is being protected in isolation, of course. I believe that every single rape, molestation, etc, always begins with an addiction to pornography.
The writer for this â€śChristianâ€ť periodical strangely does not ground his arguments in Scripture, but only psychological environmentalism ("children mimic what they see") & generalizations about neurochemistry & hormones.
I couldn't and don't care to read the article in its entirety - too disturbing. An obvious question is, where are the parehnts? And the governments concerns over this result in their intituting the teaching of sex-ed in kindergarten? Makes perfect sense! Sheesh...
