Surely the burden of proof rests with you to provide substantiating evidence for your assertions Floo.

A Rector of a parish (not in Wales) is certainly taking the proverbial where his office is concerned. Apparently this guy spends more time on the 19th hole of the golf course than going about his parish duties. He does the bare minimum where services, weddings, funerals and baptisms are concerned. Anyway yesterday I was told by a member of his congregation they were gobsmacked when at a Lent  talk, he was giving the other day, he stated quite clearly he didn't believe in the virgin birth, crucifixion and thought Jesus could well have been sh*gging (his words) Mary Magdalene! BLIMEY!

Whilst I don't believe the stories attributed to Jesus have much validity, and think it possible MM was his significant other, I am not a priest and don't stand up and say the Apostles Creed every Sunday! What a hypocrite this guy is, and should never be employed as a priest. Apparently it is very hard to sack one unless they do something  illegal so I have heard!  However money donated by the congregations of the C of E pays his salary so if he isn't doing his job he should get booted out, as people in other jobs would if they weren't doing them properly.
 lets come back to the O/P and the allegations made.
Firstly ignore the definite hersay and concentrate on the initial alegations, which begin "apparently" and "bare minimum", followed by "apparently it is very hard....."
How do we know the Cleric is not being Pastoral when engaging in the sport of Golf especially in a Licenced Bar, do we know if he is imbibing, no we don't. He does the bare minimum, as previously stated, without response from the thread Author, a Cleric is required to say The Office of Morning Prayer, preferably after tolling the Bell. Has the Author been present at such times, no. The Author refuses to sate the name of the Cleric, if the Author has witnessed the accusations laid then the Author knows exactly what actions to take along with the Parishioners, write to the Diocesan Bishop signing the letter. Action will then be taken.

I should never have started this thread it was daft of me, but I was feeling extremely annoyed at the time, for reasons I will definitely not mention here. Suffice to say the matter is at last being dealt with. I have no more to say on the topic and would sooner the thread was closed.

The matter was always being dealt with in the correct manner.

Jolly good.  

It was always perhaps being dealt with, but these things done quietly and with care are not always obvious to onlookers.

Which figures make that 'seem' to be the case?


More often than not when a paedophile priest hits the news they are usually Catholic!


And of course the media would never let an unbalanced picture emerge, would they! I was asking for stats, not your vague impression of what's on telly.


We all know the flipping Catholic church covered up abuse for years that is a FACT. The media would  bring to public attention any clergy of whatever denomination who abused children. I am saying it is the Catholic church who appear to be in the forefront of this evil! If you have stats proving me wrong feel free to air them!


Really? You make an unevidenced assertion and then demand that others produce evdience to prov you wrong? Is that how it works?

No-one has denied that the Catholic church is guilty of what you say. That is not the point. The point is that this is not something which distinguishes Catholic clergy from Anglican clergy, because they are both guilty of it.

Do you deny that?

Clergy of all denominations have been implicated in child sexual abuse. The pastor of the Pentecostal church I attended as a kid, stroked my upper thigh inappropriately when I was 14, as he was driving me home from a youth meeting.  However,  the Catholic church seems to be the front runner in that respect and sort to cover it up in the most disgusting manner.
Of course he did

Obviously the money is good???

How bright are the congregation?

Can you leave your hopes for the future in the hands of some one that has no love of his creator?
