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.

SNAP blasts upcoming papal meeting with German victims reports that later this week, Pope Benedict will again meet with a small hand-picked group of abuse victims, this time in his native Germany.

We urge him not to.
