Anglican tribunal rules against bishop who worships at Catholic parish
September 29, 2010
An Australian Anglican tribunal has found one of its bishops guilty of eight counts of “disgraceful conduct and wilful violation of church ordinances.”
Bishop Ross Davies of Murray, who resigned on September 24, was accused by two fellow Anglican bishops of engaging in verbal abuse, covering up sexual abuse, promoting the Catholic faith instead of his own, and worshiping at a Catholic parish in Adelaide. Before his resignation, Bishop Davies was on sick leave for a year and was living outside his diocese.
