Out of Town and #Metoo

Well, it’s another road trip for the long weekend, off to sign some paperwork. More to come on that.

Meanwhile, lots of interesting conversations with the Diocese of Virginia, including one in which the church basically told me that it has no problem with clergy retaliating against someone if they complain to the diocese.

It’s conversations like that that show just how clueless The Episcopal Church really is. It carries on about #metoo and its desire to be a safe church for all persons, while at the same time adhering to a standard that hasn’t been seen in publicly traded companies in many years.

Of course, that raises the question: If The Episcopal Church is 20+ years behind the times, is there a future for it?

I doubt it. Any organization, church or otherwise, with such a low ethical bar isn’t worth the time of day.

On an unrelated note, earlier this morning the blog broke 60,000 hits. That’s chump change compared to social media results so far, but still a cool milestone. 

100,000 hits, here we come!

Commenter on Episcopal Cafe Confirms That TEC #Metoo Efforts a Crock

I recently posted a comment on Episcopal Cafe, pointing out that coming suspension of the canon law statute of limitations for clergy sexual misconduct is largely bogus. Specifically, the diocese of Virginia, the largest in The Episcopal Church, still insists that clergy retaliation for filing a Title IV case is acceptable. Thus, anyone who complains internally of clergy misconduct is at risk.

Not surprisingly, others agreed; see below.

Meanwhile, Dysfunctional Bob continues as clergy, Susan Goff continues to ignore the issue, and to my knowledge, nothing has been done about the allegations that bishop Shannon Johnston covered up the sexual harassment of a female church employee.

My advice: Do NOT pursue an internal complaint if you experience clergy misconduct. If you do, get the hell out of Dodge and leave the Episcopal Church before you do.

Breaking News: Now the #Churchtoo Correspondent for @SurvivorCulture

As folks know, I’m not particularly good at sitting still. And that’s never more true than now, when dealing with a recent death in the family and two terminally ill family members.

That said, I just accepted an opportunity to help sexual abuse survivors who’ve experienced trauma in the context of church and faith communities. Should be fun, and it ties in well with the church boundaries courses I am teaching.

More to come!
