CofE may introduce quota for black and minority ethnic clergy

by Anugrah Kumar, Christian Today:

The Church of England may institute a quota on black and minority ethnic clergy within its ranks as well as institute anti-racism training, according to a report leaked Saturday.

The Spectator obtained a copy of a report set to be turned into the Archbishops’ Council by the Church of England’s anti-racism task force, which was established after Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby apologized for the denomination’s racist past last year.

The British magazine reports that the title of the document, slated to be released to the public on April 22, is “From Lament to Action: Report of the Archbishops’ Anti-Racism Taskforce.”

The report is understood to include a recommendation for a quota for black and minority ethnic clergy, revamping education in schools run by the denomination and dealing with controversial statues and monuments.
