Age of Consent

Today I read some good news. After much outcry, a decision made earlier this week by the Sri Lankan cabinet to to lower the age of sexual consent to thirteen (!!) was reversed. This was their logic in making the original change:
...the move to reduce it from 16 is a consequence of rising numbers of arrests of men for sexual relations with girls below that age.
OH, MY GOODNESS! It makes me truly nauseated. Sin so twists people's minds that these people actually found the solution to so many men being arrested for having sex with children was to no longer make it illegal! Oh, Lord, have mercy on us.
