The Barnabas Aid International Board of Trustees make a statement regarding the return of Dr Patrick Sookhdeo

The Barnabas Aid International Board of Trustees make a statement regarding the return of Dr Patrick Sookhdeo

patrick-sookhdeoEarlier this week, we published a story in The Lead about the return of the founding director of the Barnabas Fund, Dr Patrick Sookhdeo. The Barnabas Fund is a charity in the UK. Dr Sookhdeo has been convicted and punished by a UK court for a sexual assault and intimidating of witnesses. We based our story on an article written in Christian Today, a UK based Christian Media Corporation.

The Board of Trustees for Barnabas Aid International has released a statement regarding the return of Dr Sookhdeo. The Trustees claim that Christian Today wrote their story without input from the Barnabas Fund or from Barnabas Aid International. In the statement, the trustees also make their argument for why they don’t believe that Dr Sookhdeo is actually guilty of the charges for which he was convicted.

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.
