Dawkins under attack for his lenient view of ‘mild’ sex abuse
"Richard Dawkins, author of The Selfish Gene and The God Delusion, has prompted outrage among child protection experts [sic] by suggesting that recent child sex abuse scandals have been overblown.
He said that he could not condemn the “mild paedophilia” [sic] he experienced at boarding school. “I am very conscious that you can’t condemn people of an earlier era by the standards of ours,” he says in an interview published today in The Times Magazine."
