School staff ignored child sex abuse report; SNAP responds

We are stunned by the apparent callousness of these school staffers, and we are grateful to law enforcement officials for pursuing these charges. We hope prosecutors push hard for the maximum penalties for each of the defendants. If this teacher and these administrators are found guilty, we hope that education authorities consider penalizing the school itself for this egregious wrongdoing.

Rabbi arrested in New Jersey, SNAP responds

Our hearts ache for the young victims of this alleged child predator. No child should be put through this torture, especially one that is thousands of miles from home on a trip meant to further his or her education. This is a reprehensible betrayal, and we applaud the FBI for making sure Rabbi Rivlin will be unable to hurt more kids.

Experts say 100,000 US kids abused by priests; SNAP responds

Two US experts told Vatican officials yesterday that roughly 100,000 boys and girls in America have been sexually violated by Catholic priests. We believe that this is a very low estimate, especially since there are an estimated 6,000 predator priests in the US. (see: http://www.bishop-accountability.org/AtAGlance/USCCB_Yearly_Data_on_Accused_Priests.htm)
