Anglican fudge

This is a guest post by John Bevan.

The Bishop of Guildford has issued this statement on Stephen Sizer’s latest “indiscretion”. No surprises, really.

The Board of Deputies comments here. Extract:

“A repeat offender in the trafficking of antisemitic slurs, the ‘soon-to-be-ex’ clergyman Stephen Sizer has spectacularly flouted his written undertaking to the Church of England by attending an event filled with toe-curling antisemitism. If he had any shred of decency, Sizer would have fulfilled the terms of the agreement and tendered his resignation with immediate effect. He now guarantees that he will end his clerical career under a cloud. The sad irony that this divisive figure is moving on to a charity called ‘Peacemaker Mediators’ is not lost on us.”

Meanwhile, Stephen Sizer’s fellow conservative evangelicals comment here.
