The Church of England "botched" an inquiry into historical allegations of sexual abuse, the author of a review of the report has said. Sir Roger Singleton said the Church's Past Cases Review in 2010 did not give a comprehensive picture of the problem and that those conducting it refused to speak to some survivors who wanted to tell their stories. In public statements, the Church "downplayed negative aspects" of the PCR's findings in order to avoid damaging the reputation of the institution and the then Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, said the former Barnado's boss.

Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner, leader of the UK’s progressive Reform stream of Judaism, suggested in an interview published Sunday that US President Donald Trump’s immigration policies could be a stepping stone on the path to genocide.Speaking to the Observer, Janner-Klausner said it was imperative that political leaders intervene to prevent further action against illegal immigrants in the United States. “The numbing of empathy, the dehumanization of other people through the encouragement of disdain are documented stages in history that have led to atrocities and even genocides,” she said.

Nigerian Christian leaders say President Buhari's policies and church disunity mean Christians may not survive another generation. The Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Elders Forum (NCEF), Bosun Emmanuel, said the present generation of Christians risk being the last because of the Nigerian government, the killings of Christians and the poor collaboration of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), an umbrella organisation made up of various Christian denominations. Emmanuel said the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari: “is openly pursuing an anti-Christian agenda that has resulted in countless murders of Christians all over the nation and destruction of vulnerable Christian communities”.
