VICTIMS CAUGHT UP IN CHURCH SALES
THE Anglican Church has this redress so wrong (“Baptism of ire”, Sunday Tasmanian, September 30).
The Bishop should have dealt with the redress separately from the sale of the churches.
This has many victims feeling they are in the middle of this squabble and responsible for all the heartache communities are suffering.
All the empty rectories and vacant land should have been sold and the redress completed, and then the Bishop should have consulted the communities and families of the deceased on the church and cemetery sales.
It just goes to show some don’t live in the real world.
We came across this when we had the inquiry into past adoption practices and child welfare.
The Bishop should take it back to the Synod to be discussed again, and while he is at it rethink the baptism at Bothwell. Christine Burke Claremont
