MN--Abusive cult figure exploits technicality; Victims respond

For immediate release: Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Of course accused serial child molester Victor Barnard is trying to exploit a legal loophole to evade responsibility for his horrific crimes. Why wouldn’t he? He’s seen hundreds or thousands of other clerics who’ve committed or concealing child sexual abuse take advantage of the same technicalities.

NJ--Delbarton whistleblower trial approaches; Victims respond

For immediate release: Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790,314 645 5915 home, davidgclohessy@gmail.com)

We strongly suspect that the former Delbarton coach is telling the truth when he says that school officials retaliated against him for reporting suspected sex crimes and sexual misconduct by Fr. Luke Travers. Time and time again, Catholic priests and bishops have tried to punish those who speak up about abuse reports and rumors.
