Saving The Salvos

 

The ABC reports…

“In this two-part special, Compass examines the Salvation Army in Australia, a trusted church-charity engulfed by allegations of sexual abuse in its former children’s homes.

Since 1882 the Salvos have been helping Australia’s poor and marginalised with their unique brand of quasi-military Christianity. For over a century they also raised more than 30,000 orphaned and wayward children in their homes across the country. But now the Salvos’ image as good incorruptible battlers has been tarnished by the Royal Commission’s shocking revelations of sexual abuse and brutality of children in its care. So, what went wrong? How did the Salvos fail so badly? And, what are they doing about it? In Part 1 ABC Religious Affairs commentator John Cleary, himself a Salvo, goes in search of answers.”
