I believe Mark Shea has said in the past something to the effect that for now the Church is (rightly) attacked for cover up of pedophiles and later she will be attacked for condemning pedophilia.
Well in the first step of normalizing pedophilia.
Torchwood: Miracle Day will include a pedophile character whom audiences are supposed to like.
No, I am not kidding.
Yes, we should tar and feather every BBC writer and executive and actor who goes along with this. And I don’t mean that figuratively, since they apparently think they should literally rape our childhoods and our children. [Via Aliens in this World]
Sigh. I love Dr. Who, but the Torchwood spinoff is intolerably filled with various sexual pairings, to the point where a friend joked that bisexuality and nymphomania must be side effects of working with The Rift (the space/time tear that is the show’s main plot device).
My usual complaint about morally dubious characters on TV is that writers create jerks instead of ethically conflicted characters who turn out to be bona fide heroes or villains.
I’m struggling to imagine they’re going to do a better job of it here. Will they even try?
Yeah, Torchwood lost me when they had Captain Jack have his little grandson tortured and killed to save the earth, all while his mother watched screaming.
It’s only a TV series and a good one. Don’t like the morality of it? Go back and watch those ‘reality’ shows. Talk about immoral!
The point’s that it’s not “good” at all.
In thevinterview Jack Barrowman is actually quoted as saying that audiences will be conflicted regarding this character…This is true to life as people who are often caught committing such can have a charm and likeabilityvthat is very deceiving..Also I’ve watched the first episode and really like the premise and story so far even though I would agree that it is being used as a vehicle to promote the homosexual agenda.
Moving away from the merits of Torchwood for a second; remember that one of the instruments pedophiles use to procure their victims is to actually be charming. The popular myth that child molestors are disfigured monsters is just that.
update – the pedofile character is “liked” by the general public being used as a spoke person for a conglomerate drug company that has instigated the “immortality” of the human race for the sole purpose of pain killer addiction.
