SNAP to Archbishop: “Help police, protect kids, do outreach”

Church officials have allegedly reformed, right? Then explain this: For decades, when a priest from diocese “A” was accused or suspended or arrested or charged or convicted in diocese “B”, rarely (if ever) did Bishop “A” disclose the news to his flock.

Another KC predator priest is suspended, SNAP responds

We ache for the victim or victims of this priest. We also ache for KC Catholics who have been reeling for almost a year from a seemingly never-ending stream of revelations, accusations, lawsuits and criminal investigations into church officials.

Catholic priest admits abusing kid; SNAP responds

Let’s hope Fr. Boudreau is put behind bars for a long time so no more kids are hurt. Let’s also hope that others who saw, suspected or suffered his crimes will step forward, get help, expose wrongdoers and start healing.

SNAP praises victims of Delbarton School teacher

We applaud these four brave men for having the courage to come forward and report the abuse they suffered at the hands of Travers. It takes a good deal of bravery to step forward and speak out against a charismatic leader such as this predator. Hopefully by these men breaking their silence, Travers will be prevented from victimizing other children.

SNAP responds to death of Joe Paterno

We respectfully urge those who love Joe Paterno to think long and hard before publicly praising and honoring him. He clearly could and should have done more to stop his long time assistant coach Jerry Sandusky from sexually violating kids.

Deposition of a SNAP leader to be made public

Late yesterday, a judge “unsealed” the six hour deposition of SNAP Executive Director David Clohessy by five lawyers representing Kansas City Bishop Robert Finn and five Kansas City accused pedophile priests (Fr. Michael Tierney, Msgr. Thomas O’Brien, Fr. Mark Honhart, Fr. Francis McGlynn and Fr. Thomas Cronin). We will post it on our website as soon as we get a copy of the transcript. It ostensibly stems from a case called John Doe BP v. Fr. Michael Tierney and the Kansas City diocese and from one of three subpoenas that have been issued in recent weeks to victims who are SNAP leaders. This is the first time in SNAP’s 23 years that its staff has been subpoenaed.
