CA - Stockton bishop seeks bankruptcy protection
For immediate release: Monday, Jan. 13, 2014
Statement by Joelle Casteix of Newport Beach CA, western regional director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (949 322 7434, email@example.com)
A bishop declaring bankruptcy is a convenient, self-serving dodge. It’s a way to prevent the truth from coming out about clergy sex abuse and cover ups, while shifting the attention away from crimes to cash.
A bishop dealing with predator priest cases has many options. Seeking Chapter 11 protection, however, is one of the most callous.
Despite this irresponsible decision, we hope that others who saw, suspected or suffered clergy sex crimes and cover ups in Stockton will step forward, call police, expose wrongdoers and protect kids. Now, that’s more important than ever.
