SNAP responds to sentencing of Northern PA priest

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.  


SNAP responds to new lawsuit filed against the TX United Methodist Church

Shame on the Texas delegation of the United Methodist Church. It is bad enough that they were aware that Pastor Kendall Graham had inappropriate relations with his congregation, but to simply move him around and let him adopt a young girl is unconscionable. By allowing Graham to do this, they essentially condemned this woman to a life of abuse. Their inaction in this matter is sick.
