Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, 314 645 5915 home, email@example.com)
Vatican officials are re-affirming their so-called ban on gay priests.
Scapegoating some adults protects no children. Behavior, not orientation, is what matters.
Half of our 20,000 plus members are women who were sexually assaulted as kids by priests, nuns, bishops and seminarians. It’s just wrong to assume or claim that most victims of child molesting clerics are boys.
