Pentecostal Bishop arrested, SNAP responds

We hope that anyone who may have seen, suspected or suffered misdeeds by Pentecostal Bishop Charles Brown will come forward, get help, call police, expose wrongdoing, protect others and start recovering. If you have information that would either prove or disprove these allegations, it is your moral and civic duty to speak up now.


Indianapolis archbishop steps down, SNAP responds

We wish Archbishop Buechlein well with his health struggles. At the same time, however, we are glad he’s stepping down  -- although we have little confidence that his successors - either the short term or long term ones -  will do much to protect the vulnerable and heal the wounded in the Indianapolis archdiocese.
