The news media reports a shocking (video recorded) incident in which a school principle and two teachers gang-raped a student in a KZN school. Tragically, sexual assaults on schoolgirls in the public schooling system are not new.
In 2013, the Department of Health released shocking statistics of teen pregnancies in KZN schools. Many teens are impregnated by teachers and older (married) men.
Teen pregnancies and abortions are spiralling out of control in SA. Government appears to have little or no strategy to combat and reverse this terrible trend.
To add fuel to the fire, government is colluding with UN agencies like UNESCO to implement “Comprehensive Sexuality Education” (CSE) in all public schools.
CSE is guaranteed to escalate sexual promiscuity, rape, pregnancies and abortions among teens in SA. Alarmingly, UNESCO is also targeting younger children.
Authorities appear powerless to combat this scourge in KZN. Governance in this region is almost non-existent as the ANC are distracted by leadership battles.
Sadly, the Church’s response to the shocking reports of sexual assaults on children has been anemic – perhaps believing that ignoring this crisis will make it go away.
More ominously however, sexual predators have already gained access to the Church so they can target children under a cloak of authority and trust.
A Cape Town Church was shocked to discover its youth pastor was preying on young boys in the church. He was arrested for soliciting naked pictures of teens.
Online pornography including child pornography is a growing menace in society. Most children have easy access to hard-core pornography on their smart-phones.
Sexual predators mainly use social media to groom their victims for abuse. Human traffickers also use the internet to target and lure children into sexual slavery.
The Church must urgently address access and addictions to pornography, sexual grooming and assaults on teens in schools – and its own employment policies.
The screening process for youth and children workers must be strengthened. Sexual predators target safe havens like Churches to gain access to vulnerable children.
The targeting of children by sexual predators is at an all time high. The Christian Church cannot ignore these atrocities. We must protect the future generations of SA.
