    This is about power. Whenever someone has power over others and the power to be protected by the more powerful, there can be problems. I never understood people I read about when their children told them something awful and they called the…bishop. I’d have been on the horn to the police. So some of it is the responsibility of congregations. But it’s also about the nature of power.

    What a difficult time for Australia. At the same time I think church people need to be called to account as much as every other member of the population.
