    Well, well, well. On the front page of today’s New York Times, Uncle Ted takes a direct hit. This was a long time coming. Headline: “He Preyed On Men Who Wanted To Be Priests. Then He Became A Cardinal.” Excerpts: But while the church responded quickly to the allegation that Cardinal McCarrick had abused a child, some church officials knew for decades that the cardinal had been accused of sexually harassing and inappropriately touching adults, according to interviews and documents obtained by The New York Times. Between 1994 and 2008, multiple reports about the cardinal’s transgressions with adult seminary students...

    Live Action has recently released a powerful docuseries demonstrating Planned Parenthood’s decades long complicity in the cover-up of sexual abuse. An investigative report has also been released, detailing some of the horrific cases covered up by Planned Parenthood, which receives millions in taxpayer dollars annually, including Title X funds. It also reiterates how abortion enables sexual abusers by aiding them in the ability to cover their crimes. The report, “Aiding Abusers, Planned Parenthood’s cover-up of child sexual abuse,” (which can be read here) adds to the mounting evidence of Planned Parenthood’s history and corporate culture of failing to report incidents...

    The most senior Catholic to be charged with concealing child sexual abuse — Adelaide's Archbishop Philip Wilson — has been found guilty by a New South Wales court, in a landmark ruling. The 67-year-old was accused of covering up abuse by priest Jim Fletcher in the NSW Hunter region in the 1970s. As part of his defence, Wilson's legal team tried to argue that as child sexual abuse was not considered a serious crime in the 1970s, it was not worthy of being reported to authorities. However, Magistrate Robert Stone cast that claim aside in a ruling that could have...

    No, they are not going to bring back times tables, Teachers think this sort of thing is beneath them, and that making any child learn things is cruel.... But employers, if they can, somehow seem to prefer to hire Poles or Romanians. We may have the certificates.

    A massive pro-migration group partnered with liberal billionaire George Soros has been accused of “hushing up” allegations of more than 37 cases of sexual assault, fraud, and bribery. The United Kingdom froze the funds to the International Rescue Committee, a non-governmental organization, after evidence surfaced that the group was paying off people to remain quiet about sexual assault and fraud the group committed. The IRC was given more than five and a half million pounds — which is just shy of $8 million U.S. dollars — of taxpayer funds to support a charitable mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo....

    The Church of England is facing as many as 3,300 potential sex abuse cases in the form of concerns and allegations, as revealed by the Church's lead bishop on safeguarding issues. The Times reported on Thursday that Peter Hancock, bishop of Bath and Wells, shared the latest figures, which concern sex abuse against children and vulnerable adults reaching up to 2016, during a three-day meeting of the General Synod in London. Hancock did not make it clear whether all the complaints are new or a combination with longstanding ones, but even if a fraction of them are upheld, the CofE...

Another Olympian gymnast, Jordyn Wieber, joined Raisman as they shared their testimonies in court.Raisman took the...

    Spanning more than a decade, former FBI directors Robert Mueller and his successor and protégé James Comey relied on their inner circles to help cover up a surging and troubling amount of sexual misconduct complaints filed by physically violated and emotionally battered female FBI agents. There is a culture of corruption in the FBI. Or the FBI is a culture of corruption.

    An aspiring actress says Harvey Weinstein used Oprah Winfrey and Naomi Campbell to dupe her into thinking he would help her with her career — only to use her for sex. British actress Kadian Noble said Tuesday she was head-over-heels impressed when she first met Weinstein at an event in London because he was hanging out with model Campbell and had megastar Oprah “swinging off his arm.” “I thought, obviously, this man has something amazing in store for me,” she said during a teary-eyed press conference in Manhattan to discuss the sex trafficking lawsuit she filed a day earlier against...

    If you were to consume any national American media outlets and sites, one could come to the conclusion that Republicans are THE problem when it comes to sexual abuse in the United States, especially ONE Republican in particular. But if you were to try and keep up with the tally of reported sexual abusers in the current scandal cycle, it's clear sexual abuse IS a geographical (Hollywood, New York City, and Washington, D.C.) and very partisan epidemic.

    The 21-year-old Douglas is the latest high-profile gymnast to come forward against Nassar, who spent nearly two decades as the national team doctor for USA Gymnastics before being fired in 2015. Two-time Olympic teammate Aly Raisman wrote about alleged abuse by Nassar in her autobiography “Fierce,” released earlier this month. Two-time Olympic medalist McKayla Maroney disclosed abuse by Nassar in October. Jamie Dantzscher, a bronze medalist on the 2000 U.S. Olympic team, was part of the initial wave of lawsuits filed against Nassar in 2016 following reporting by the Indianapolis Star that highlighted chronic mishandling of abuse allegations against coaches...

    America is in the midst of a huge, sordid sex scandal. As horrific as it is to have so much alleged sexual harassment and abuse coming to light from Hollywood to the halls of Congress and seemingly everywhere in between, worse still is the reality that we should not be surprised. For several decades American culture has been fed a steady diet of highly sexualized Leftist movies, television shows, and advertisements. Pornography abounds on the internet, and sleazy magazines that used to be hidden from view and read in secret are now boldly on display at the grocery store checkout...

    Embattled actor George Takei has apologized for a recent interview with Howard Stern in which he joked about sexually assaulting men, after the former Star Trek star was accused last week of groping a male model in an alleged incident in 1981. In a social media post, Takei said he attempted to play the role of a “naughty gay grandpa” whilst appearing on the radio show, adding that it was a “caricature that I now regret.” “Many have raised concern over a back-and-forth between Howard Stern and myself, where we joked about me touching men during my ‘Star Trek’ days...

    Iconic actress Michelle Pfeiffer chimed in on the sexual assault and harassment scandal consuming Hollywood, telling the BCC on Sunday that abuse of women in the film industry is “systemic.” “I have never worked with Harvey,” Pfeiffer said of disgraced indy film mogul Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual assault or harassment by more the 60 women. “I have had some experiences, and I have to say, since this has all come out there really hasn’t been one woman that I’ve talked to who hasn’t had an experience.

    When “Star Trek: Discovery” actor Anthony Rapp accused Kevin Spacey of sexually abusing him -- or trying to do so -- when he was only 14 years old, Spacey immediately came out with a statement saying that, although he didn't remember any of it, he was sorry if something inappropriate did happen. Famously, he used this "opportunity" to come out as gay. As Stephen Kruiser explained immediately after Spacey came out of the closet, however, the issue wasn't his sexuality (it was rumored for years that Spacey was either homosexual or bisexual, which didn't seem to interest most people) but...

    A change of the old order in Hollywood is long overdue, according to Paul Haggis, the Oscar-winning film-maker behind the hit films Crash and Million Dollar Baby. The Canadian screenwriter and director said many of the established rules of big-budget showbusiness should be re-examined in the light of falling box-office receipts and the recent scandalous claims and revelations about the enduring influence of the casting couch. “Los Angeles is a town run by a group of powerful corporations, the studios, and they inevitably want to make what they know they can sell. This means they often lag a few years...
