Vicar abused teen who wanted to deepen her faith in Christianity

From The UK-

When a ‘vulnerable’ teenage girl in Lancashire, UK, developed an interest in the church and expressed the wish to deepen her faith and interest in Christianity, she soon became the victim of sexual abuse.

Her abuser was a married Church of England vicar – Simon Marsh, 59 – who is now looking for an alternative vocation.

March was sacked from his role of vicar of St Michael and All Angels Church in Bramhall, Stockport, after a hearing of the Bishop’s disciplinary tribunal for the Diocese of Chester found that:

"Increasingly he used force, anger and pressure, physical, emotional, and even theological, to compel her to submit to his increasing sexual demands and gratification. He attempted to justify his demands by telling her it was fine with God that he had sexual relations with her. "
