Lord Carey’s son attacks Church over lack of ‘sadness and sympathy’ for his father over abuse inquiry

The son of former Archishop of Canterbury George Carey has attacked Church of England bishops for failing to support his father, who he said is the victim of “changing attitudes”.

Last month the Gibb report into sexual abuse by paedophile bishop Peter Ball found that Carey was among church figures who had “colluded” with the disgraced bishop.

Following the publication of the report he was asked to step down from his role as an honorary assistant bishop in the diocese of Oxford.

His son Andrew Carey, a Christian campaigner and writer, said in his column in the Church of England newspaper that he was “angry and dismayed” at what had happened to his father.

He wrote: “I’m struck by the absence of any public expression of sadness and sympathy for my father from the current crop of archbishops and bishops.

“They certainly wouldn’t express any support for him in public because he now suffers from a disease that all bishops fear is contagious – that he has been criticised over handling safeguarding.
