Protecting the Church's 'good name'

Recommended Posts

The Church of England’s spiritual leader said on Wednesday it was disgraceful that the institution had for decades failed to protect children from sexual predators within its ranks and shown lack of care for victims.

From the 1940s to 2018, 390 clergy and people in positions of trust with the Church were convicted of sexual offences against children, an inquiry found this week.

“It’s shameful and disgraceful and reveals exactly what they said - a culture in which there was cover-up and hiding,” Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby told the BBC in his first public reaction since the report was published.

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse found the Church allowed abusers to hide to defend its reputation.

What do you expect when the Head of the Church is actively protecting an alleged paedophile?
