Clergy sex victims blast abusive high profile Atlanta pastor

New Birth Missionary Baptist Church will be a more healthy institution without Rev. Eddie Long. He’s clearly a self-aggrandizing egomaniac who abuses his power to gain financial and sexual pleasure.

Hollywood talent manager charged with abuse, SNAP responds

We applaud the brave young man who came forward and spoke out against Martin Weiss and the sexual violence that he committed for years. To come forward at such a young age is impressive and courageous, and likely has saved many other children from more exploitation and abuse by Weiss.

Shame on San Angelo’s Catholic bishop. He’s trying to have his cake and eat it too – paying a settlement to make a clergy sex abuse and cover up case go away while suggesting no one did anything wrong.

Philly Catholic official deemed "competent," SNAP responds

We’re pleased but not surprised that a judge has found Philadelphia Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua competent to testify.

Philly Cardinal is questioned; SNAP responds

While we're grateful that Bevilacqua is being questioned, it's long overdue. And it's time that Catholic officials are treated, by our justice system, just like anyone else - no special privileges or deference.
