Church Of England Makes Chichester Child Abuse Apology

The Church of England has formally apologised for past child abuse by Anglican priests and its own “serious failure” to prevent it, the BBC reports.

Archbishop of Canterbury

The ruling General Synod, meeting in York, endorsed a report apologising for abuse in the Chichester diocese, the BBC said.

The Archbishop of Canterbury said there needed to be “a complete change of culture and behaviour” in the Church.

Opening the debate, the Bishop of Southwell and Nottingham, the Right Reverend Paul Butler, said the Church had “failed to listen properly”.

The bishop read out a statement from victims of child abuse in the Church who called for a public inquiry to find out the number of victims, how the Church protected abusers and whether there was a cover-up.

        Probono and Others:

        Here and there an individual monk may violate his promise to be celibate.

        But, It is not a mental illness as that happens among Christian priests.

          are you out of your mind to say here and there a monk breaks his vows?
          its a disease in the sanga and not only they violate women but abuse the samaneras under them too!

          “Here and there an individual monk may violate his promise to be celibate”

          funny. first time i’ve heard someone call abuse and pedophilia as “violating celibacy” and not “punishable crime”.

          oh but wait, nationalists and Rajapakse-worshipers have different takes on the penal code. Sorry. My fault.

        Probono…

        So maybe you commend the actions of the church, still it doesn’t rectify the situation or change the fact that the church may have protected such offenders. Really doesn’t seem very gutsy to me! Quite unnerving actually.. It’s a shame that these incidents even occur in civillised England as many like to portray the country on CT.

        Be it England or Sri lanka Child abuse is wrong and those protecting such offenders should also be punished. As for the local media, they have reported on similar cases here in SL. For you to say otherwise is not fair. Instead of boasting on this page and IF you have a list of such crimes committed by the sangha what are you doing keeping it a secret?? Protecting the offenders are you? The biggest problem in SL is most incidents don’t get reported. If you got the guts.. Go for it!

        Bottom line…. Do NOT leave children unattended in places of religious worship anywhere in the world! Do Not leave children unattended at all!

          Anna,

          Of course abuse of children is a dirty thing and those bastards should be punished!

          What I said was that the church has the backbone to apologize (even now at a later stage) and tries to rectify things WHICH THE BUDDHIST CLERGY HAS NEVER EVER DONE

        listing the crimes in the media by the media doesn’t reflect any credit whatsoever on the Sangha. The media isn’t an extension of the Buddhist religion or it’s leaders in the country, no matter what people prattle on about this being a ‘Buddhist country’. There hasn’t even been a simple acknowledgement by these “learned” monks that this problem exists among them, neither has there been any kind of official apology and/or assurance that they will be vigilant against this kind of thing and cooperate with the law fully.

        Maybe reserve your sarcasm for a time when you make a relevant rebuff?

    Always worship the CREATOR not anything that is “Created” be it human or other living creatures. Priests or monks don’t trust them, they are humans with flesh, bones and feelings.
