Dear Fellow Catholic:
We are parents, relatives, and friends of boys and girls who were sexually abused at the hands of priests, deacons, nuns, and other employees of the Catholic Church.
We applaud you for being here today and showing that you care about social justice.
The single most important social justice issue, we believe, is the safety of Ohios children.
Please join us in telling Ohios bishops they are wrong to oppose the most pressing and effective legislative measure to protect children: SB 17.
Please tell them that as a Catholic, you oppose them spending your donations to protect molesters and those who shield them.
What is SB 17?
* Requires clergy to report known or reasonably suspected
abuse or neglect of a child by any other member of the clergy.
We love our Church too, but we love our children more.
* Child molesters can have well over 80-100 victims in
a lifetime. (The Male Survivor: The Impact of Sexual Abuse, Parynik Mendel)
Do not let your child or grandchild become a statistic. Do not let your Bishops side with child molesters and against your children.
