GA- Archbishop's meeting on Saturday is “silly,” victims say

For immediate release: Friday, April 4, 2014

Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 503 0003, SNAPdorris@gmail.com) 

Bishop Wilton Gregory's meeting on Saturday with his clergy about his expensive home is just silly.

These clergy have all sworn an oath to respect and obey Gregory. So this is like a king “consulting” with his subjects. 

Gregory should stop making excuses and start living humbly. 

And keep in mind Gregory's extravagance – and similar extravagance by his colleagues in Camden and Newark and elsewhere – the next time you hear Catholic officials whine that they lack sufficient funds to adequately compensate suffering victims of pedophile priests. 

(SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. We’ve been around for 25 years and have more than 15,000 members. Despite the word “priest” in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers.

    When my son Eduardo went to St ANTHONY high school seminary in San Antonio Texas. One priest named Fr. Frank Cassada wore Italian shoes & drove, I think a Mercedes or a BMW! OMI, s r notorious for $! Fr. Salvador DeGeorge got me my own credit card with him as the main name. It was part of him grooming me. I still don’t know how he did it. I never gave him permission to look up my private info.
