Useless and unhelpful as macsas is, and as out of date their website is, they did do a church abuse survey some years ago, and never appear to have got around to the second one.
But I would like to include their survey here http://macsas.org.uk/MACSAS_SurveyReportMay2011.pdf
On page 42, a case concerning the Diocese of Winchester is mentioned.
I do not know for sure, but believe that may be the case of a woman who I will call ‘M’, it is not my case, definitely but very sadly I was made aware of M’s case while I was in the Diocese, which shows just how little confidentiality mattered to some people.
M, made a complaint about a Vicar. Sadly the Diocese handled this really badly, really really badly, because they involved JM, the Vicar who’s husband sexually abused me, and who told me that the abuse was not abuse and was my fault and that I was trying to seduce her husband etc.
JM, with her bad attitude to abuse victims generally and not just me, who always treated abuse victims with scorn and repeatedly lack of confidentiality, and who made abusers out to be ‘just victims themselves’ always had this attitude of scorn and lack of confidentiality to victims and attitude of support to abusers.
JM was, for some reason asked to step into the abuse claim and act as a ‘mentor’ to ‘M’, she kept nothing confidential and told me all about it, she scornfully described M as ‘adoring’ this Vicar and following him around and seeing him as a father figure and misconstrueing his actions, and this is how she represented M to the diocese, much as she scornfully blamed me for what FM did while I was vulnerable and she had taken me home to him.
Quote Macsas survey page 42:
1.18.1 Two other cases were also reported in the Dioceses of Winchester and Liverpool. In the first there was at last an investigation process undertaken two years after the allegations were made when the respondent contacted the Archbishop of Canterbury. The respondent has recently reported that the outcome of the investigation was to give the vicar the ‘benefit of the doubt’ and to suggest ways that the vicar could change his behaviour so that it is less open to misinterpretation. She is again writing to the Archbishop of Canterbury. 1.18.2 Again it is clear that Church leaders do not seem to take these cases seriously, or understand the need for resolution when complaints are made. Even when allegations are investigated through the Clergy Discipline Measures the procedures are manipulated to minimise the actions of the vicar and the subsequent penalty imposed. Women are not being protected from further abuse by these men.
