Church of England warned bishops not to apologise too fully to sex abuse victims
Survivors of child sexual abuse have accused the Church of England of “acting like Pontius Pilate” as a previously unseen document revealed that bishops were explicitly instructed only to give partial apologies – if at all – to victims to avoid being sued.
Legal advice marked “strictly confidential” and circulated among the most senior bishops, told them to “express regret” only using wording approved by lawyers, PR advisers and insurers.
The guidance – written in 2007 and finally replaced just last year – also warns bishops to be wary of meeting victims face to face and only ever to do so after legal advice.

Christianity is pretty much been rotten to the core.There is no real great good that ever comes from people whom keep on trying to deny-it so as to create a prize silk purse out of a real scruffy-grade sow’s ear
The idea that ” genuine Christian Churches” won’t use public relation firms, is an excellent example of the “no true Scotsman’s fallacy” . A particular type fallacy as is explained here http://www.logicalfallacies.info/presumption/no-true-scotsman/
And its a dishonest way that some people choose to use when not wanting to face-up and admit to the full truth of matters.
Christianity has been rotten to the core (and this fact can also help to explain reason why we will also now have these nasty cults as well too.As a little leaven, soon enough leavens the whole lot) Why bother with to trying to deny it? . What? would they hope to achieve
Nothing much-good ever comes from continually denying the obvious
Ex exclusive brethren whom still choose to continually cling onto the idea.Will only do themselves a great disservice, and a disservice to everyone else as well too
Simply because.The idea is foundered on dishonesty
And it is indeed this ghastly depth of dishonesty that has then also helped to allowed this disgusting mess to continue onward perpetually generation after generation , for as long it has done
It is no better . Little different
Than the dishonest way the exclusive brethren are also choosing to be very selective in the information they choose to look for . As in looking for information to find out whether James Taylor jr was honestly a pure man.Or not
Trying to blame victims of cults . For the depth of extreme evil that has also helped to allow cults to form. Is like taking pot-shots at the very lowest hanging fruit.Fruit of the most thick nutty ignorant childish in-bred kind at that
Its not the first time that the Church of England were accused of using a PR firm . More information in that regard available here http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1329565/Church-secret-plan-sell-15m-Masters-PR-firm-thousands-handle-outcry.html
