Someone will get more than $1 million: either Dennis Hastert or one of his victims. We hope it will be the man who was sexually abused as a youngster by Hastert.

WA--Yakima bishop refuses to list predators; Victims respond

For immediate release - Tuesday, April 26, 2016, 2016

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790314 645 5915 home, davidgclohessy@gmail.com)

Yakima Catholic officials are now refusing to follow the lead of 30 other US bishop by posting names of predator priests on a church website this month. Shame on them for putting their comfort above the healing of victims and the safety of kids.
