"Church ‘colluded’ with bishop to conceal his ‘sadistic’ sex crimes – report"
"Senior figures in the Church of England (CoE) have been found guilty of “colluding” with a former bishop jailed for a string of sexual offenses on young men and teenagers over a period of two decades.
Former Bishop of Lewes and Gloucester Peter Ball was jailed for 32 months in October 2015 after admitting to sexually abusing 18 people aged 17-25 while in service.
Ball, described as a 'sadistic sexual predator' by his victims, even admitted to abusing a 12-year-old. He was released in February after his sentence was shortened to 16 months.
‘An Abuse of Faith,’ a report examining the CoE’s response when the first allegations were made in 1992, found that senior clergy had 'trivialized' Ball’s actions in a bid to save the Church’s reputation.
The report accused then-Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey of failing to inform police of several letters by members of the public who had witnessed or experienced Ball’s abuse.
'Ball’s priority was to protect and promote himself and he maligned the abused,' report author Dame Moira Gibb said.
'The Church colluded with that rather than seeking to help those he had harmed, or assuring itself of the safety of others,' she said, according to the BBC."
