Preventing child sex abuse: inhibit hierarchical rigidity

Psychology Today has a list of recommendations for preventing child sex abuse by clergy. List comes from a list presented a year ago this month by Mary Gail Frawley-O’Dea author of Perversion of Power: Sexual Abuse in the Catholic Church.

Recommendation 9:

Incorporate term limits for Bishops and other policies that inhibit hierarchical rigidity.

Discuss. What are the pros and cons of term limits for bishops in The Episcopal Church? Or is the notion antithetical to the Anglican ethos?
