Disgraced Anglican bishop removed

From ABC-

The primate of the Anglican Church of Australia, Reverend Phillip Aspinall, has officially approved the removal of disgraced South Australian bishop Ross Davies from the Murray diocese.

The former bishop's conduct was the subject of a church tribunal hearing in Adelaide in September.

It found him guilty of eight of nine church charges brought against him, including protecting another archdeacon who was accused of sexual misconduct.

Reverend Aspinall's office said Ross Davies had accepted the tribunal's findings but it could not confirm reports he had now joined the Catholic Church.
