Church Of England Admits Covering Bishop’s Sex Scandal

Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, has admitted that the church covered a bishop’s sexual abuse of young men. He made the revelation on Thursday as the church published how it handled the case of Peter Ball, former Bishop, who was convicted and imprisoned in 2015.

Welby said the bishop’s conduct “caused serious and enduring damage to the lives of many men;” and that “the church at its most senior levels and over many years supported him unwisely.”
