Sexual Misconduct by Clergy in the Episcopal Church

Anne F. C. Richards

This article discusses the ordination selection process in both the Roman Catholic Church and the Episcopal Church. Exploring the current sexual abuse crisis in the Roman Church, it focuses on possible roots of that crisis in flaws in the selection process and its theological underpinnings. It also explores what constitutes healthy priestly functioning and how misconduct occurs when healthy functioning breaks down.
