Everyone can demand that every Anglican minister must be held accountable via Title D for any abuse, any coverup of abuse, any enabling of abuse and any silencing of abuse survivors.Anything less is a betrayal of the Gospel to which we are called to be witnesses.The challenge now is: what are you going to do about it?

"No Action has been taken either by the School or the Diocese to investigate further these allegations in regard to F Sheehans failure to report these matters either to the CCGS School Board, the Police or the Diocese. The school instead chose to believe Canon Sheehans denials. The possibility exists that if the School had taken action against Canon Sheehan choosing to validate and believe the survivors testimony to the District Court made in sworn evidence the Insurance policy that covered the School would have been invalidated and the school itself would have had to use its own Trust Funds to pay any claims. At the same time no action has been taken by the DIocese or the Professional Standards Board to examine these claims or the risk factors that F Sheehan presents. F Sheehan is still in active Ministry and no sanction has been made. "

It is of great concern if this is a place that some or many do not see as being safe or as a community that is not caring for survivors of abuse. This is particularly profound when there has been so much harm done within the church.
Redefining risk factors across a spectrum of Theological positions .
The good faithful people who honour an "Anglo Catholic" tradition in their spiritual journey have been betrayed by the Leaders who chose a toxic culture of Clericalism over the needs of the victim/survivors their families and the community.
“The New Scapegoats” Muriel Porter. Review: Possibly Defamatory “Toxic Sludge” that needs to be refuted. “Do not buy this book”
Do Not Buy This Book.
"Toxic sludge", the possibly defamatory exegesis of an "obscurantist denialist" who uses obvious proveable "fake" arguments , self-protecting "smoke screens" in an attempt to undermine national Professional Standards Legislation. Ms Porter refights old prosecutions in the light of a bias against so-called "New Puritans". Heavily slanted "biased" arguments in defence of K Slater and other Clergy from Defrocking and other sentences from Professional Standards Investigations.
Letter to a New Zealand Friend “The Australian Royal Commission Investigation”
The Anglican Church lost six Bishops to adverse findings and the leadership structure has been exposed as fatally flawed. By 2018 the ACA faces deposition trials in four states and likely criminal charges of those complicit in cover up and misprision of a felony in NSW and Victoria.

This article was written as part of a hearts and minds campaign and was aimed at a group of readers within the Institutions. I hope to rewrite this article using the strongest possible arguments s we try again to Depose Slater and Combden from Holy Orders subject to internal appeals.
It was written during active Royal Commission hearings and now the Royal Commission is Finalised it is time again to prosecute fully Slater and Combden and fight against the denialist minimisers and their growing faction including Muriel Porter and acolytes within National Synod who attempted to water down Statutes in regards deposition trials.
Issue: Prayers for The People. Recognition of Victims/ Families/Community effected when Bishop under Preliminary Adverse Findings
Again this shows that Resignation rather than early retirement avoids the difficulties Liturgically that an early retirement created.
My understanding was that after an early Retirement during the Prayers for the People that Prayers are said for The Administrator rather than the early retired Bishop.

Handling Conflicts of Interest
We acknowledge that “ cover up” is tantamount to abuse and that allowing offenders to continue to offend makes those that had the chance to prevent the cycle of offending criminally responsible for the damage done to victims.

Episcopal Standards AB Aspinall CS 52 Complaints Conflicts of Interest gaining uniform agreement.
One key issue is that - there is quite a body of feeling in the church that bishops must be held accountable by a body external to their own diocese; the accountability
has to be held that way, cause most of the key people within a diocese are either personally known to the bishop, so there are conflicts of interest or have been appointed by the bishop, so there are conflicts of interest. So there needs to be an external body.
