First, I would like to thank all the readers who, over the past day, have been pointing out the latest developments regarding the former Traditional Anglican Communion Primate Archbishop John Hepworth. I too have seen the blog, including what Bishop Brian Marsh (ACA) has allegedly said regarding Archbishop Hepworth’s future in the TAC. I will however not be posting, linking or commenting on the source blog at this time. So please, there is no need to alert me further.
That said, for those interested (and who have otherwise also been inquiring):
Follow the links there – if you so wish.
Perhaps I should simply focus on Biblical Archaeology? (The subject with which my blogging exploits started - and still the subject of my MA studies…) Less trouble than Church politics. Everything is already dead.
Now, as to the latest – which we actually try to alert the readers to on this blog – Archbishop Hepworth has responded (re: the above) in the mainstream Australian media (I suppose I can link that…) calling it all a ‘vendetta’:
An alleged victim of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church says he has been the subject of a smear campaign.
Traditional Anglican Communion head, Archbishop John Hepworth, said false claims that he had been accused of misappropriating church funds had been raised at services. He said the claims were part of a vendetta against him.
“It is totally false. I am being hounded and I am not amused,” he said.
Archbishop Hepworth last year accused a senior Adelaide Catholic priest of raping him 40 years ago.
Oh yes, and before I forget, this blog does have a disclaimer:
