Hurt? Sure, I feel hurt

The Advertiser

FORMER Anglican archbishop of Adelaide Ian George says the findings of an inquiry into child sexual abuse within the church had hurt many people - including his family and himself.

Bishop George says he is pleased that some of the inquiry's "so-called findings" are now being questioned.

He also criticised the leaking of correspondence between him and an alleged pedophile, former clergyman John Mountford.

Bishop George says he has adjusted to life in retirement, away from the pressures of his work as archbishop.

He now lives in a northern suburbs home which he and his wife bought five years ago. He spends much of his time reading or gardening and on Sundays, generally attends a suburban church as a private worshipper.
