Schools aren’t there to save the Church

The Church of England's new evangelical missional strategy should lead us to question its entitlement to proselytise in schools, argues Stephen Evans.

In a bid to reverse the precipitous decline in Anglican affiliation, Archbishop of York Stephen Cottrell has come up with a plan to "revitalise" the ailing Church of England.

Cottrell's "Vision and Strategy" paper proposes setting up tens of thousands of 'worshipping communities', essentially led by the evangelical laity. The plans reflect the growing influence of evangelicalism within the Church under Justin Welby's tenure as Archbishop of Canterbury. The plans have caused considerable consternation amongst the clergy. Much of this stems from the apparent desire to deprioritise the parish system in favour of 'groovy' house churches led by lay people rather than priests. Writing in Church Times, Andrew Brown called the plan a "suicide note", likening the proposals to the Church "tearing off its buildings and its priests, and rushing stark naked into a world that couldn't care less".

Oh!! Patricia! that is a terrible experience! How could he possibly do such a thing! There is no justification for such a procedure at 7-years old. He clearly had a problem, and I wonder how many little girls he violated. I wonder, did he have an erection when he did it?

The hospitalization and having anesthesia indicates they were looking for something; was the Dr who performed it the same as the one who penetrated you? 

"An extraordinary type of foreign body (FB) may be found in the female external genitalia, especially in children. Intravaginal FB, retained for a long duration, can produce diagnostic dilemmas. Vaginal bleeding as the result of a leech bite is extremely rare, although reported. We report two cases of vaginal FB (intravaginal Scotch-Brite in a 5-year-old girl and leech in the vagina in a 7-year-old girl)."

~ Halder P, Mandal KC, Mishra L, Debnath B. Spectrum of vaginal foreign body in children: A report of two cases. Indian J Paediatr Dermatol [serial online] 2017 [cited 2021 Jul 18];18:220-2. Available from: https://www.ijpd.in/text.asp?2017/18/3/220/206052.

My first reaction was a yeast infection, and that happens to females all the time, especially if your vaginal area was exposed to unclean surfaces and clothes. However, that would not require an internal exam. 

I am so sorry you had that experience! If your mother had known how serious it was, she could have made a complaint to the medical association, although they are too protective of doctors. 

Here is what I found when Lysol was used as a douche product. Obvious, pregnancy was not the issue for you and your mother's decision. However, well, look up this article. It reveals misogyny at its worst.

"one of the most shamefully misogynistic decades-long ad campaigns in advertising history, when Lysol — you know, the cleaning product — was marketed as a great thing to douche with."

"Lysol was incredibly corrosive to the vagina; in fact, its recipe was significantly more dangerous than the one used today.  Hundreds of people died from exposure to Lysol, including women who were using it to kill sperm.  It was also, to add insult to injury, wholly ineffective as a contraceptive."

Mother spent quite sometime douching me out with Lysol mixed with water. To this day I don't know what the rash was, but it kept recurring so ended up in hospital for tests & put under anaesthetic for whatever they did. Mother didn't seem to know either.

Comment by Stephen Brodie on July 17, 2021 at 13:56

 Mrs.B that's diabolical. I've come to the conclusion that gynaecologists should be women only.

Comment by Mrs.B on July 17, 2021 at 13:50

I was 7 when a doctor broke mine. I had some sort of rash, but he seemed to think I needed an ''internal'' with his finger. I had no clue other than pain. Mother was there, but I don't think she even knew what he intended to do. She said nothing later, & it wasn't until I was older that I knew what the pain meant.

" 'virginity testing' is an unscientific procedure involving an intrusive examination to assess whether the hymen is intact."

Good gracious, my hymen broke when I was 10-years old when I fell on the bars of a boy's bicycle. I bled all the way home and everyone knew I was badly hurt but my friends couldn't figure out what happened to me until we got a little older. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on July 17, 2021 at 5:48

Virginity testing for females must stop until and unless virginity testing for males begins. 

We need laws to identify the father of every baby and he is made responsible for the financial support of the baby.

Ya! Ya! Ya! I know, no such laws will ever be made nor should they be.

NSS welcomes plans to ban ‘virginity testing’

The NSS has welcomed plans to ban 'virginity testing' to protect women and girls from violence and exploitation.

Measures to outlaw virginity testing in England and Wales have been tabled as a clause in the Health and Care Bill, with backing from the Department of Health and Social Care.

The bill is now at committee stage.

It would also ban so-called 'virginity repair' procedures.

Defending Muslim women’s rights requires a willingness to criticise Islam

Islamic scripture is being used to justify attacks on women's rights in many countries. Secular law is a crucial defence – and shielding Islam from criticism undermines efforts to assert it, says Kunwar Khuldune Shahid.

Thank you  Joan for your reply. Of the many things, I hate about our politics in the UK the worst of all is the cowardice of the main parties on this subject. And this is from a person who has just recently rejoined the labour party in the hope of adding my voice in bringing the party back to its founding principle's of socialism and social democracy.
