For immediate release
Statement by Tim Lennon of Tucson, AZ, SNAP Volunteer Arizona Leader and board member, (415) 312-5820, firstname.lastname@example.org
When dioceses and religious orders seek protection in federal bankruptcy courts, they do so to protect their assets and embarrassing secrets from public sex abuse and cover-up civil trials.
he Crosiers’ decision today is no different. Church leaders in Phoenix and Minnesota must use every means at their disposal to publicize this bankruptcy and allow victims of sexual abuse plenty of time to learn about the bankruptcy’s deadlines. We urge them to be open and transparent about the process and make public all evidence of child sexual abuse in their files.
