What Prof Mcfarlane was saying in evidence about insurers and their solicitors and even more so in her Church Times article of 2015 supports what I said in the comments on Matthew Inesons last entries. The Church is not in charge of its culture. It’s the Insurers (or according to the Professor) it’s Lawyers

Reading these transcripts daily, it’s just struck me that it was considered OK to have clergy and organists with a history of abuse in churches where there were ‘no children’. But how fixed is a congregation? Surely a new family with children could arrive at any time?? Didn’t anyone think of this?
