MN - SNAP to Catholic task force: “Resign now”

For immediate release: Tuesday, Oct. 29 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)

Archbishop John Neinstedt’s new abuse “task force” is a farce. We’ve felt so from the outset. Now it’s clear.

We call on members of that panel to end their complicity in this charade and resign in protest now.

OH - Toledo bishop promoted to CT

For immediate release: Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013

Statement by Barbara Blaine of Chicago, president of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (312-399-4747, SNAPblaine@gmail.com)

Bishop Leonard Blair has done a poor job dealing with the church’s on-going child sex abuse and cover up crisis in Toledo. We are disappointed that, once again, Pope Francis has promoted a prelate who has failed to show real courage and compassion and refused to adequately protect the vulnerable and heal the wounded.

For immediate release: Monday, October 28, 2013

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

No amount of money can restore the innocence that was taken from the victims. It’s only because of their generosity and courage in speaking up that Sandusky was removed from his powerful position and children are safer.

MO - Predator priest is sentenced but nothing changes, SNAP says

For immediate release: Friday October 25, 2013

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

While today's sentencing ends a legal chapter on one Catholic cleric who committed heinous child sex crimes, it ends nothing about several Catholic clerics who concealed these crimes.

MN - Archbishop does "boilerplate PR"

For immediate release: Thursday October

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

We agree with Nienstedt: he and his staff can “do better.” But they don’t.

Instead they posture. And they perpetuate the fallacy that child abuse is the root of this inexcusable horror.

It’s not.

MN archbishop's answer: "I'll hire more lawyers"

For immediate release: Thursday, October 24

David Clohessy, Director, SNAP, Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, (7234 Arsenal Street, St. Louis MO 63143), 314 566 9790 cell (SNAPclohessy@aol.com)

In response to scandal stemming from secrecy, Archbishop John Nienstedt proposes more secrecy.

http://thecatholicspirit.com/that-they-may-all-be-one/pledge-restore-trust/

He does one thing today – he promises hiring more lawyers. That’s all. The rest of his column is just more promises from a powerful prelate who keeps breaking old promises.
