MADPRIEST'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

I think it very unlikely that a Church of England bishop would tell a victim of bodily violence that their injuries were their own fault because they should have been stronger or tell a person suffering from a physical illness that it was their fault because they didn't have the immunity to the disease. Yet this is exactly the attitude of many bishops when it comes to the victims of mental abuse and those suffering from mental illness, especially when they happen to be priests, deacons or lay people in positions of responsibility.
