Belief Bytes: Your Friday Religion News Roundup from Religion News Service

Here’s your Friday Religion News Round-up from Religion News Service‘s editor-in-chief Kevin Eckstrom.

A little excerpt:

“In a reminder that bad decisions on abusers aren’t limited to the Catholic Church or Penn State, Episcopal Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori said she ordained a former monk as an Episcopal priest even though he was booted from the abbey for improper contact with a minor.

KJS says the Rev. Bede Parry seemed to have “demonstrated repentance and amendment of life.”

Now, however, it looks like there are quite a few skeletons in Parry’s closet, and tongues are wagging that KJS either overlooked them, didn’t know or didn’t ask enough questions.

From the Dept. of Separate but Related, 3 in 4 Australians say the abuse of minors is their biggest stumbling block in their views of Christianity.”
