More child abuse in the church
Archbishop of Canterbury issues 'unreserved and unequivocal' apology after links to ‘child abuser’ emerge

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/02/...er-emerge/

The Archbishop of Canterbury issued an “unreserved and unequivocal” apology on Wednesday on behalf of the Church of England after admitting he had worked at holiday camps at which teenage boys were groomed for abuse.

The Most Rev Justin Welby said the Church had “failed terribly” by not reporting John Smyth QC, the head of the Christian charity that ran the summer camps, to police after he was accused of carrying out a string of “horrific” sado-masochistic attacks in the late Seventies.

RE: More child abuse in the church
Freaking A! So many guilty parties... Sad

So this happened in the late 70's, but wasn't known until 1982 when it took a suicide attempt to bring it to light? Seems unlikely. Dodgy The boys had wounds bad enough to leave scars and for which they were forced to wear adult nappies, but no one noticed? Not even the parents?

How does this happen???
The camp, the clergy, the parents, the investigating Christian Trust... fuck! Everyone apparently sleeps 24/7! And then pretty much no-one but friends were informed and investigated the abuse.

I'm so sick of these stories! Angry

I call BS that this ArchBishop didn't know anything until 2013! He was there. A kid tried to commit suicide. "Mark Ruston, a vicar who was also a friend of the Archbishop" commissioned the report in 1982. This ArchBitchop knew and should be locked away! He can shove his hollow apology up his lying, disingenuous ass!

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

Talk is cheap. When the fucker starts signing some checks let me know.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!
