Resignations from team appointed by ACNA to address sexual abuse

Three members of ACNA’s Provincial Response Team have resigned in protest. The PRT had been appointed to address sexual abuse cases, and the mishandling of those cases, in the Anglican Church of North America. In their resignation letter, the three cite broken promises and mishandling of the cases, breach of trust and a concern for ACNA rather than the survivors. ACNA is a breakaway from the Episcopal Church over issues of sexuality.

The letter can be read here.

Friday ACNA announced it hired a firm to investigate the allegations of sexual misconduct. Survivors and allies expressed their objections to that selection here and here, for instance.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.
