Before awarding a suspended sentence to a 63-year old substitute teacher guilty of having 4,500 pornographic images of children as young as two years old, Judge Mary Jane Mowat told David Armstrong that “I don‘t criticize you for being … attracted to children…Many teachers are but they keep their urges under control … when it comes to children and … images of children.”
“Stances taken by this judge are a logical consequence of the ‘sex is a private matter’ mentality in both the U.K. and the United States. Western culture has slid down the proverbial slippery slope and is in no position to challenge such deviant behavior.”—Dan Spencer, Executive Director of the National Fellowship of Catholic Men
In 2008, Mowat, a judge in the United Kingdom, set free a former headmaster charged with pedophilia when he blamed his sexual attraction to children on the drugs he was taking for Parkinson’s disease.
“It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” (Luke 17:2)
