Anglican Church failed to protect children from sexual abuse, landmark report finds
October 08, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: “From the 1940s to 2018, 390 people who were clergy or in positions of trust associated with the Church [of England] have been convicted of sexual offences against children,” according to a report released by the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse. “Many of these cases demonstrate the Church of England’s failure to take the abuse seriously, creating a culture where abusers were able to hide. Alleged perpetrators were given more support than victims, who often faced barriers to reporting they simply couldn’t overcome.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
