SNAP Questions Irish Bishops' Claims About Church Finances

Irish citizens and Catholics should be extremely skeptical of claims of alleged ‘poverty’ by church officials. Prelates who are dishonest about children’s safety will certainly be dishonest about their vast wealth.

SNAP applauds brave family

We're grateful another family that was shattered by clergy crimes and cover ups is helping to prevent more crimes and cover ups. Each time a victim or witness calls police, files suit, or breaks silence, our society becomes a little bit safer for the most vulnerable among us.
