MN - priest speaks out; SNAP responds

For immediate release: Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2013

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

We applaud the Twin Cities priest who’s calling on Archbishop John Nienstedt to release a list of proven, admitted and credibly accused child molesting clerics. He’s also calling for “new leadership” in the archdiocese.

The former request will definitely help protect kids. The latter request likely will not.

NY - Judge's ruling protects Cardinal Dolan

For immediate release: Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013

Statement by Peter Isely of Milwaukee, national board member of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (414-429-7259, peterisely@yahoo.com)

A judge’s new ruling could further shield NY Cardinal Tim Dolan from the legal and public consequences of clergy child sex abuse cases he handled for eight years in Milwaukee.

The decision comes weeks after the same judge refused to rescue himself from the Milwaukee bankruptcy case even though he and his family have strong connections to the archdiocese.

Rome - Pope ousts one bishop but let’s convicted one stay

For immediate release: Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013 

Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 862 7688 home, 314 503 0003 cell,SNAPdorris@gmail.com)

Pope Francis has suspended a German bishop for financial misdeeds.

But he ignores bishops who have concealed or are concealing child sex crimes. He should suspend them promptly, starting with Bishop Robert Finn of Kansas City Missouri, who was convicted in 2012 of withholding evidence - hundreds of sexual photos of young girls - from police.

MO- Missouri’s most awful predator priest will never again hurt a child

For immediate release Tuesday October 22, 2013

Statement by Barbara Dorris 314 862 7688, SNAPdorris@gmail.com

Missouri’s most awful predator priest will never again hurt a child.

Msgr. Thomas J. O’Brien has passed away. He forced silence on some of the dozens of boys he sexually assaulted by telling them that they would be kicked out of the Catholic Church, they would go directly to hell and their parents would disown them.

TX - Houston's top Catholic runs for national post

For immediate release: October 22, 2013

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, national director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790 cell, 314 645 5915 home)

Houston’s Cardinal Daniel DiNardo is a candidate to head the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. We hope he’ll withdraw or fail in his bid.

His record in Sioux City was abysmal. His record in Houston shows no improvement.

In 2008, we named DiNardo as one of the worst Cardinals in the US. Our view of him has not changed.

TN - Female Christian teacher accused of abuse; SNAP responds

For immediate release: Monday, Oct. 21, 2013

Statement by Steve Theisen of Hudson IA, Iowa director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (319 231 1663, Ltreggiefan@cs.com)

A female Christian teacher is accused of abusing boys. As a child, I too was abused by a trusted older woman who was a nun.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/21/beth-scearce-teacher-sex_n_4135422.html?ref=topbar

I’m sad to read about the pain these boys have endured and are enduring. But I’m grateful they’re helping police and prosecutors. Kids are safe when law enforcement pursues, charges and convicted child molesters – of either gender.

Louisville Archbishop Joseph Kurtz is running for the presidency of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. We hope he fails.

http://ncronline.org/blogs/distinctly-catholic/nominees-announced-usccb

Kurtz refuses to join the ranks of 30 US bishops who have posted on their websites the names of proven, admitted and credibly accused child molesting clerics – a simple, inexpensive, proven public safety measure. In addition:
