The Rt. Rev. A. Robert Hirschfeld has posted a pastoral letter about the divisions and grief brought to light following the guilty verdict of Owen Labrie, a student who sexually assaulted another student at St. Paul’s School in Concord, New Hampshire.
He raises the issues of male privilege and misogyny, and clarifies that there is no legal relationship between St. Paul’s and The Episcopal Church, and finishes with a prayer to heal the divisions within us all.
The entire letter is available at his blog, Tending the Vine.
