Church of England tries to stamp out bullying

Church of England tries to stamp out bullying

The Church of England released guidelines for its schools today aimed at eliminating homophobic bullying. The Archbishop of Canterbury, in announcing the new guidelines, declared that he had fulfilled a promise he had made back in July of 2013 to target such bullying in church schools.

The guidelines lay out 10 points to focus on, and suggest policies for primary and secondary schools to implement in order to eliminate bullying. The guidelines can be read here

Upon release of the guidelines, Welby said:

Church schools begin from the belief that every child is loved by God. This guidance aims to help schools express God’s love by ensuring that they offer a safe and welcoming place for all God’s children. This is a task we are called to share and I know it is one our schools take immensely seriously. I commend this guidance as a contribution to that work.”

but, but, but, but, but, but, thank you very much, that will be all. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, doesn’t seem to have the depth of human understanding that is vital and necessary for his job. LeonardClarkBeardsley/Leonardo Ricardo

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.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
