Catholic Bishops Conference of Malaysia president Bishop Paul Tan has slammed the showing of a snippet from the sex video purportedly involving Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim on a local television network. Bishop Tan denounced the move as an “inexcusable outrage,” Free Malaysia Today reports. The government-linked TV station TV3 had earlier broadcast a snippet from the so-called part two of the video allegedly depicting the opposition leader’s tryst with a sex worker. “From the start, a permissive attitude has characterised the attitude of the authorities towards this sordid episode,” said Tan, who also heads the Malacca-Johor diocese. “Now that permissiveness has led to this outrage: the showing of material that is vile and putrid on public TV to an audience that comprises women and children. “This is an inexcusable outrage for which the laxity of the authorities in not acting firmly to nip things in the bud is at grave fault. “No person of conscience can fail to deplore this permissiveness, this inaction in the face of a puerile voyeurism that has now reached a nadir,” he added. Tan urged the authorities to act swiftly and bring the culprits who procured and featured the sex video to book before “evil begets more evil.” “This permissive attitude, this relativism in the face of evil actions is an obvious contributor to the moral turpitude we see before us. “Guardians of law and morality cannot afford to equivocate in the face of insolent evil. They must act or society is at grave risk,” he warned. SOURCE Bishop slams ‘sex on TV3? (Free Malaysia Today)
