According to that newspaper, information that could have prevented abuse has been "lost or damaged", concerns about individuals have been ignored and allegations have not been recorded. It means that the Church has no idea how many paedophiles are in its midst.
Lawyers warned last night that the Church faces a crisis as catastrophic as the one that engulfed the Roman Catholic Church and cost it millions of pounds in damages.Richard Scorer, a solicitor who has specialised in child abuse cases, said that the Church of England's mistakes amounted to "an appalling, shocking level of negligence" that is likely to leave it open to claims from victims who have been too afraid to speak out in the past. The Church is to launch an urgent investigation on an unprecedented scale.
Nevertheless, the church proved once again that it is willing to ignore completely the evidence under it's collective noses when a spokesman claimed: "We would hope that in the majority of cases things have been dealt with, but we are realistic enough to admit that mistakes have been made and there may still be some risk attached to those cases."Needless to say, the Archbuffoon of Durovernum has decided that he can no longer ignore the most egregious behaviour of his colleagues and has concluded that it is time to put up an appearance of doing something about it. Consequently, he said:
"Every parish has got to have a child protection policy and it needs to work properly."Though if Williams was really serious about initiating a 'child protection policy' he would stop indoctrinating children with his delusional psychopathological beliefs that his so-called 'god' actually exists, but the chances of that happening are as likely as him rooting out all the 'sickos' in his church.
Not only is there no 'god' but there appears to be little morality in the church.
What a surprise.
But, hey, let's not pre-judge the issue; let's wait for the cover-up and whitewash report in a couple or so years time.
