Statement on Rev Stephen Sizer

The Communications office of the Church of England has today issued the following statement concerning online comments by the Rev. Stephen Sizer.

A Church of England spokesman said:

"Our attention has been drawn to comments by the Rev. Stephen Sizer made earlier today on social media. In those comments Rev. Sizer linked to an article entitled "9/11 Israel did it".

These comments would rightly be seen as unacceptable whenever they were posted. It is a matter of deep sorrow and shame that they have been posted in this week of all weeks.

The Diocese of Guildford, where the Rev Sizer is licensed, is taking immediate steps to investigate. The diocese is aware of the seriousness of the matter and are also in touch with the Board of Deputies of British Jews."
