MO- Victims respond to predator priest case settlement

For immediate release: Monday, July 7, 2014

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

For starters, please remember that just because a Catholic public relations person says something, that doesn't make it right. Nor does it make it normal. Katie Pesha should be ashamed of herself for savaging this brave young victim today. Years from now, we suspect that she will be. And we hope she will then try her best to make amends to a courageous, suffering young woman.

For immediate release: Monday, July 07, 2014

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)

We are glad the Pope promises to “hold accountable” Catholic officials who conceal abuse.  But he hasn’t done it yet, not in Rome nor in Buenos Aires. Saying and doing are different things. The first is easy, the second is hard.

For immediate release: Monday, July 7, 2014

Statement by Barbara Blaine of Chicago, president of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (312-399-4747, SNAPblaine@gmail.com)

As he has done for millions over the past year, today Pope Francis seems to have won the hearts of six clergy sex abuse victims with his humble, kind personality. Sadly, however, kids and Catholics need a leader who combines these traits with the toughness to fire complicit church officials.
