UK Think Tank Suggests Pedophiles NOT Be Prosecuted For Viewing Child Porn

A think tank in the UK named Justice recently released a report on the rising tide of pedophilia cases in Great Britain and made the suggestion that first time offenders who view child pornography online be allowed to avoid prosecution. The proposal has the backing of the Victims’ Commissioner, Dame Vera Baird. In 2008, there were 52,166 reported cases of sexual offenses. By 2018, the number of cases skyrocketed to 159,740 since victims from both old and new incidents are encouraged more to report the crimes.

With such a large number of cases being processed, the criminal justice system is becoming overwhelmed by the caseload. Police, on average, end up investigating approximately 1,000 cases each month that involve someone viewing child porn. Justice researchers claim, “For some types of sexual offending, prosecution and prison can be ineffective. It is often the shock of the arrest and confirmation that what they are doing is wrong that causes these individuals to stop offending.” They also claim these first time offenders don’t pose a risk to children and their method could be effective without the courts getting involved. It would exclude offenders who commit more serious crimes.

The program they propose would involve the first time offender attending workshops similar to drunk-driving classes with their agreeing to comply by changing their ways. Their assignment would be to take eight 90-minute sessions within four months. Eight months afterwards, they would have a follow-up meeting. Failure of completion would mean criminal prosecution.

Advocates for child victims are upset by the proposal to let such offenders skate simply because the courts haven’t found a way to remedy the caseload. Considering how manipulative child sex offenders can be, their concern is that there could be ways offenders will exploit such a system.

I personally believe those child advocates are correct, especially given how police throughout the UK for many years let organized Muslim rape gangs avoid charges, even though they sexually exploited children. These first time offenders already know what they’re doing is wrong. That’s why they know they have to sneak around to do it. Many of them pre-arrange online viewing of child porn with other pedophiles, telling them what type of child they wish to see abused and what form the abuse should be. In some cases, it’s livestreamed. So even if they are a first time offender, they do indeed pose a real risk to kids.

The Lord tells us that children are a heritage from the Lord (Psalm 127:3). In Joel 3:3-4, God promised he would punish Tyre and Zidon for making merchandise of children. He thinks children are so important that Jesus Christ endorsed the death penalty for those who offend children, stating, “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea,” Matthew 18:6. Taking it easy on pedophiles is a sure way to put more children in harm’s way and this proposal in the UK seems to be a step toward decriminalizing pedophilia, just like godless liberals want.

      1. Unfortunately this is all too often true. Which is probably why the Catholic Church has been able to get away with not reporting their sins and those of those who were covered for.
