The Editorial

After Fletcher

The one thing that can be safely said in the wake of the distressing safeguarding issues reported on pages 6-8 is that almost any words written anywhere in en about these matters will prompt someone, somewhere, to disagree – possibly quite vehemently.

That, in itself, is a disturbing symptom of how fractious and indeed fracturing the fallout from these investigations has thus far been in some (if not all) parts of the conservative evangelical constituency, especially among some Anglicans. How Satan must be rejoicing, not only over the awful acts that have been perpetrated in the name of Christ by those at the centre of these scandals, but also over the way people have turned on one another in its aftermath.
