Relentless blight of moral decay

From Dr Kevin Blewett

Sevenoaks, Kent

I want to congratulate Phil Peverley on one of the most outstanding articles by a medical journalist ever written (25 May) about young people and their moral condition.

Though it poured out common-sense, nevertheless it took great courage to write, because it was against the grain of the 'spirit of the age'. Everything is moving relentlessly in the direction of further moral decay, and if anyone speaks against it they are frowned upon.

If more parents shared such common-sense with their children, if clergy taught it and politicians encouraged it, the young people might have more of a chance.

Well done Phil! You have become an overnight hero. One of the most damaging health and emotional afflictions of our age is passing unmentioned, untreated and unnoticed. But someone spoke up against it ­ and it was a breath of fresh air!

Will it make any difference? Certainly not! But let a voice be heard crying out against it, and we will be encouraged, there is some sense left in this world. I found it in a medical newspaper. I may never find it again, so I am appreciating it while I can! Thank you Pulse and thank you Phil!
