71 accused of child sex abuse in Harrisburg diocese
By Stephanie Sadowski | PennLive.com | August 1, 2018
The Diocese of Harrisburg on Wednesday published a list of clergy, seminarians and church personnel accused of sexual abuse of a child since the 1940s, making sure to stipulate that "the term 'accused' is emphasized to note that the list includes summations of accusations; the list does not include assessments of credibility or guilt.'"
The list was broken down into thirds: Cases where abuse was first alleged while the accused was living, cases where abuse was first alleged after the accused's deathand cases where abuse was alleged to have occurred in another diocese.
Barbara Blaine, founder of SNAP, passed away on Sunday, September 24th, 2017. Her dying was sudden and completely unexpected. Words cannot express our sorrow nor are there words to express our gratitude for her relentless advocacy. She truly was a hero. There is an old saying, “well behaved women seldom make history”. Barbara made history and the world is a better place.
