The DA's office and a civil attorney for three alleged victims said the criminal proceedings are the first they know of to be initiated against White, who lives in Bedford, Penn.
A grand jury indicted White last month on five counts of assault and battery. He pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Suffolk Superior Court.Read more
The Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan, welcomed the move and said: "This film will not be easy watching for church members as it reminds us how people among us have been ostracised and mistreated because of their sexuality.
"By sharing the personal stories of those who have suffered and been hurt I hope this powerful film will bring home to all the scale of the damage done and ultimately help change attitudes within the church."Read more
So we must be ready and prepared, understanding the times, just as the Apostle Paul urges the Christians in Rome when he writes: 'the hour has come for you to wake out of sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed' (Romans 13:11).Read more
But there was no 'room at the inn' for the Archbishop of Mosul, the Archbishop of Homs and the Archbishop of St Matthew's Valley (Nineveh Valley). According to Barnabas Fund, the reasons given for their visas being refused included the claim that they did not have enough money to support themselves in the UK and that they might not leave the UK.Read more
Unfortunately, this year St. James the Great, after three years of full participation in convention, has seen our privilege of representation revoked by the bishop's office--we have not been allowed any delegates. Thus we are not able to enter the discussion and vote on any resolutions or canon amendments of vital interest to us, or the election of a bishop coadjutor who may likely decide our fate.Read more
The hostilities degenerated to the extent that the violent congregation locked the bishop, other members of the clergy and youths in the cathedral during a service, last year that it took the breaking of the keys of the burglary proof and gate for them to get out. Saint Luke Cathedral, Sapele, is perhaps the only Anglican Church in the state where the members worship God in such a manner and even unbelievers are shocked as to why children of God would not bury the hatchet.Read more
"Within the Diocese of Eastern Michigan, these past ten years have seen a decline in membership and Average Sunday Attendance. We are now 45 congregations on our way very quickly to 43. Annual congregational giving has declined making financial viability increasingly difficult for an increasing number of congregations. Our population continues to decline and Michigan demographics show us growing older while losing our young to opportunities in other parts of the country," Ousley reported.Read more
Cheek will face a sentencing hearing in February and was granted bail in the meantime with strict conditions, including that he not reapply for a passport and must stay away from airports, and must not have any contact with children or his victims.
Judge Ronald Birmingham said imprisonment was likely and told defence counsel Michael Perrella he had his work cut out for him to persuade him otherwise.Read more
The Anglican Diocese of Tasmania has rejected the proposed finding against Bishop Newell, who was the church's Tasmanian bishop from 1982 until he retired in 2000.
Its lawyer Neil Clelland, QC, called on the commission to extend Bishop Newell a greater level of "understanding" which it had granted other church officials.
The landmark Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse held public hearings in Hobart earlier this year.Read more
"I have already said that this is the third year that I am repeating what the basics are for us and, frankly, I have not seen many results. Maybe I'm the only one who sees it this way. Perhaps some of you could name many changes you have experienced in your own community. If this is so, I am happy and I apologise for my insistence on this."Read more
