The Church of England is to make far-reaching changes to the way it deals with cases of sex abuse, following a highly critical independent report that details how senior church figures failed to act upon repeated disclosures of a sadistic assault by a cleric.
This comes as no surprise to the Forum which is aware of a Reverend in Bedford, who quite astonishingly has safeguarding responsibilities at a Primary school, and repeatedly ignored safeguarding concerns raised by a father for his child.
The lack of response from the ‘pillar of our community’, three times in fact, is what is to be expected from the Church of England who are so Christian it seems that they sacrifice the rights of children to protect abusers.
When will Bedfordshire be rid of these hypocrites who pose a danger to our children and put their corrupt institutions before innocents?
Despite the seriousness of the disclosure, no records were kept by the four clergymen Joe spoke to and no further action was taken. “Practice of this nature is simply not acceptable,” the report says.
Except in Bedford where the ‘good’ Reverend sees fit to ignore all concerns.
