Church of England 'failed to protect children from sexual abusers'

Church of England 'failed to protect children from sexual abusers'

The Church of England failed to protect children from sexual abuse, and created a culture where abusers "could hide", a report has concluded.
The Independent Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse (IICSA)'s report says the Church's failure to respond consistently to victims and survivors of abuse often added to their trauma.
It added that alleged perpetrators were often given more support than victims.
The Church of England is expected to publish a response later.

The report, which is the latest in a series of publications from the IICSA, says 390 clergy members and other church leaders were convicted of abuse between the 1940s and 2018.

In 2018 there were 2,504 safeguarding concerns reported to dioceses about either children or vulnerable adults, and 449 allegations of recent child sexual abuse.
The inquiry said the Church of England was "in direct conflict with its own underlying moral purpose to provide care and love for the innocent and the vulnerable".
Its chair, Prof Alexis Jay, said: "Over many decades, the Church of England failed to protect children and young people from sexual abusers, instead facilitating a culture where perpetrators could hide and victims faced barriers to disclosure that many could not overcome.

Mostly that it's the C of E. I probably shouldn't be surprised, given how close its structure is with the Catholic Church. One would have thought that at least having the option to legally have sex would have rendered a plague of child molestation unnecessary.

And what is the queen doing? Isn't she the head of church of England?

People obviously need to wait until Kate Middleton becomes the queen because she'll definitely bring order into the church of England.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

It's certainly one of religion's most conspicuous features.

She's the figurehead of the C o E but takes no active role in its governance - any more than she does in running the UK Government or the various Commonwealth countries of which she is head of state.

^This. Expecting the Queen to do something about sex abuse in the Church of England is like blaming the guy in the Ronald McDonald clown suit because your kids are fat.

In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Don't get me wrong. I'm quite happy with the state of democracy in my country, the 'Republicans' can get fekked and eat bags of d!cks.

I would, however, like better accounabilty within the system. Jus' sayin'.
