In response to ‘Rebel Priest’ Rev Jules Gomes: Our most vulnerable girls pay sorely for our surrender to the Islamists, paul_parmenter wrote:
Denial is never any solution. It is just another form of lying. I still don't see how this abuse will ever be tackled when there is a culture of such denial that is now cemented in our political, media and even religious elite. The very groups that are notorious for never admitting that they were wrong.
Vigilantism is one of the greatest fears of the ruling elite, but they seem to be actively encouraging it. Otherwise, I don't know where decent people can go with this. Having to lock our daughters in chastity belts before we let them out of the house and encasing them in blast-proof armour before they can attend a pop concert, is not my idea of a "progressive" society.
