Pope names Portland priest a bishop; SNAP responds

We don’t know much about newly-appointed Oregon Bishop Liam Cary. But we’re encouraged almost every time the Vatican promotes a priest rather than a chancery office staffer to higher positions. And we’re encouraged when men who have spent some adult years outside of the priesthood are elevated, because we believe it’s likely such men are slightly less caught up in an unhealthy, secretive, rigid clerical culture that dominates the Catholic hierarchy.

SNAP responds to arrest of Deacon in TN

We are repulsed and saddened by this story. For a five-year-old child to be put through this kind of torture is especially egregious, and we shudder to think what other children have been victimized by Thomas McConnell.

SNAP blasts Albany bishop & praises DAs

Twice in the last decade, 14 prosecutors have pressured Albany’s Catholic bishop to act more responsibly in child sex abuse cases. It’s disturbing that even now, a veteran church official who has repeatedly pledged to “reform” must be prodded to do what’s right for children’s safety. This should be very alarming to Albany area citizens and Catholics.

Rev. Slocum sentenced, SNAP responds

We are saddened that Rev. Slocum was able to escape with only probation. Children are safer when predators are behind bars, and for a felony conviction involving the abuse and concealment of a child we believe that this sentence is little more than a slap on the wrist. This sentence effectively allows Fr. Slocum to use his demonstrated cunning and deceptive ways to meet, groom, and abuse another child.

SNAP responds to ruling in Tennessee Supreme Court

For too long, corrupt Catholic officials have successfully exploited legal technicalities and deadlines to escape consequences for ignoring and concealing child sex crimes. Ever so gradually, those awful days are ending, as judges more and more often are letting juries hear cases involving pedophile priests.

Judge won’t drop case vs. Philly Catholic official; SNAP responds

If a man ignores and conceals crimes, enabling child molesters to hurt more kids, what his underlings, peers or supervisors do is irrelevant. He should be criminally prosecuted.

We hope that Fr. Samuel Slocum is given the maximum sentence possible for his abuse of a young boy. Children are safer when predators are behind bars.
