Church-going businesswoman who took part in paedophile ring

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This just disgusts me, those poor children!


    Article
     
  2. I do wonder why the press insist on applying labels to these people like 'church going' in this case. Are they suggesting that because she went through the motions of being christian she is more guilty, or perhaps they are suggesting that church attending people should all be considered possible paedophiles, or do they just add these descriptors to pad out the article
     
  3. Re: Church-going businesswoman who took part in paedophile r

    Probably because if the shite hits the fan and you get accused of a unlawful act[which at the moment means you are guilty until proven innocent, then if you are proven innocent you are still guilty thanks to the nagging shites]they always go on the side of the saintly church goer and not the "always in the pub disgusting" person.

    We also have to look at "The net" once again the net is to blame. He/she is always on that computer. What dark deed is he /she doing on that thing.

    Hmm, I think they are trying to imply the opposite. The church, one assumes, teaches the difference between right and wrong, and the virtues of goodness and the sins of evil. So perhaps she should have known better?!

    ...like it makes a difference! A sex offender is a sex offender, be they tinker, tailor, soldier, church-goer.

    :roll:
     
  5. Defendents themselves often bring the matter up in pleading mitigation. It indicates that she accepts she did wrong, though it is somewhat difficult to square her professed beliefs with practice. Also it should be noted that according to the Home Office's own data (and affirmed by the Church of England) the prevalence of paedophilia appears to be significantly more common amongst regular church-goers than non-church goers. What the statistics do not address is the probability that sex offenders probably attend church to get closer to their potential targets, in, what is after all, a trusting environment. Similarly, with regard to Prison Statistics: most prisoners profess to be religious, but this may simply be a ploy to attract sympathy and early release. After all, it seems to always impress the Parole Board, and seems to be especially effective in the USA at garnering premature liberty.
