WHO WE ARE
We are victims of child sex abuse (and supporters) who are members of a support group called SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAPnetwork.org). Our mission is to protect the vulnerable and heal the wounded.
WHY WE'RE HERE
We want Baptist officials to take child sex abuse cases more seriously and take strong steps now to safeguard innocent children and vulnerable adults from those who commit and conceal clergy sex crimes.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
First ask your children or loved ones if they were molested by church workers or volunteers and, if so, beg them to call police and therapists immediately.
Second, urge Baptists officials to;
--hire independent experts to review child sexual abuse scandals and,
--immediately respond to child sexual abuse reports with openness and compassion.
--fully fund and conduct (again using independent outside experts) an abuse database study, which was approved at the SBC’s 2007 annual meeting but never actually done.
