C of E publishes critical child abuse report – 10 years too late!

St. Paul states that ministers and those who teach Christianity should have higher morals, because ‘we will be judged with greater strictness’. Horrifically, too many in the clergy throughout the churches have not taken heed of that bit of scripture. This is literally a case of too little, too late. The churches desperately need to win back public confidence, and that will mean a new broom scouring them of the paedophiles and being seen to do so fearlessly.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Church of England!)

The Diocese of Chichester has just published a detailed report on child abuse which was commissioned by the former Bishop of Chichester, the Right Reverend Dr John Hind.

To its author’s credit, the report unflinchingly criticises the way child abuse allegations were handled by senior members of the church.

The only problem is – the report was actually completed way back in 2004.

Which means the diocese has withheld its publication for a full 10 years:

Even worse, all of the identities of the people involved in the abuse have been anonymised  – including those people who were convicted of child abuse offences.

If this is the Church of England’s idea of openness when it comes to allegations of child abuse – then God help us all.
