Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790,davidgclohessy@gmail.com)

We are disappointed in Lafayette's Catholic bishop and its district attorney. The bishop won't release the names of 15 credibly accused predator priests and the D.A. won't even ask the bishop for them. What an irresponsible decision by both men.

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)

A $20 million clergy sex abuse settlement means one thing: Catholic officials were incredibly scared of the evidence about complicity that would have emerged in court.

That's almost always the motive when the church hierarchy pays this much money to abuse victims.
