Nov 29 2019 – “Church apology for historical antisemitism” – Times Letters by Bishop Gavin Ashenden [published] + Richard W. Symonds (unpublished)

Dear Editor

Bishop Gavin Ashenden’s reference to Bishop George Bell’s “confrontation” in the 1930’s (‘Church’s apology for historical antisemitism’, letters, Nov 22), reminds me of the latter’s September 1939 article in Fortnightly Review: ‘The Church’s Function in War-time’:

“The Church ought to declare what is just. It has a right to prophesy, to analyse the issues which lie behind a particular conflict, and to rebuke the aggressor…”

No mention of apology – just repentance.

 

Yours sincerely
