TX - Teacher accused of abuse, SNAP responds

We applaud the principal of St. Rose of Lima school for immediately informing the CPS and HPD. It is important for adults in positions of trust to listen to children when they report abuse, to show them adults will believe them and take action to protect them.

SNAP is encouraged by new Ohio bishop

Though we know very little about Bishop Monforton, we are encouraged by this selection. We worry when chancery officials – bishops, auxiliary bishops, vicars general, and chancellors – are promoted, because many of them are involved or were involved in covering up child sex crimes. The chances are lower that priests or monsignors (who spent most of their careers outside the chancery) are guilty of this complicity and secrecy. So we’re hopeful when those who are not chancery employees are elevated.

Paterno & Penn State president knew; SNAP responds

Based on this disclosure, we believe prosecutors must file more charges against these three conspirators, especially Spanier. And we believe that every single building, program, statute or honor to Joe Paterno should be removed and rescinded.

MO - Judge rules against KC bishop; SNAP responds

We are glad that Bishop Finn has lost his bid for more secrecy. We are glad that he must turn over relevant documents to prosecutors. This information can only help shed light on how Catholic officials handle abuse reports and predator priests in secrecy.

PA - House arrest for convicted Philly Catholic official? SNAP responds

We believe Msgr. Lynn being behind bars is just, and helps end current cover ups and deter future ones, both inside and outside the church.

VA - High profile ‘exorcist’ priest is sued in VA for abuse

Fr. Thomas Euteneuer is a manipulative, sick charlatan. He has sexually violated other devout, vulnerable Catholic women. Like Fr. Daniel McGuire and Fr. John Corapi, Fr. Euteneuer travels widely and trades on his charm and charisma to exploit unsuspecting parishioners who are often in awe of his high profile and impressive connections.

CA - Three victims settle lawsuit in California, SNAP responds

We are grateful to these three brave men who have helped expose a predator priest and who have won some semblance of justice. We strongly suspect that Catholic officials in Santa Rosa and Dublin knew of or suspected Fr. Patrick McCabe's crimes but kept silent and endangered more children.
