Focus On The Family Blames Sexual Assault On Consensual Sex, Lack Of State-Sponsored Religion

Jim Daly, the head of the Christian ministry Focus on the Family, tried to blame the reports of sexual assault and harassment on consensual sex (from the 1960s sexual liberation movement) and the banning of state-sponsored religion in schools.

Daly wrote in his blog how young people depend on state governments for moral clarity and moral education:

Interestingly, Harvey Weinstein was eleven-years-old in 1963 when the Supreme Court declared state-sponsored Bible reading in public schools unconstitutional.

In fact, many of the individuals who have been cited recently for harassment and assault came of age in the midst of the ongoing Sexual Revolution.

At a time when a hormone-raging adolescent most needs to hear straight lessons about limits, culture was preaching liberation…

But by mocking, marginalizing or even criminalizing good and honorable principles in schools, by removing the building blocks of moral education, is it any wonder that we’ve produced morally deficient people?

In fact, what we’ve done is deprive young people of the very tools (moral clarity, a commitment to respect others) that even secular sociologists suggest are most likely to lead to a healthy and thriving adulthood.
