CAPE TOWN: Anglo-Catholic Priest Defrocked Following Tribunal for Whistle Blowing Gay Activities
Anglican Priest Tells Story of Decades of Homosexual Abuse, Cover-Up at Highest Levels of the Church
A priest with the Anglican Church of Southern Africa has been defrocked by his bishop, Merwyn Castle, on the recommendation of an ecclesiastical tribunal because he brought "the church into scandal and disrepute". He did this by questioning the sexual standards of his church and bringing to light multiple cases of homosexual abuse by priests with young men going back to the 70s. Castle is the bishop of the Diocese of False Bay.
