CA - New San Diego Catholic bishop is named SNAP responds

For immediate release: Wednesday, Sept. 18, 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)

The Vatican has announced that Bishop Cirilo Flores is the new head of the San Diego diocese. We’re disappointed and worried by this move.

http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2013/09/other-pontifical-acts_18.html

Flores spent years in the Diocese of Orange, a diocese with a very troubling track record in concealing crimes and endangering kids. For more than a decade, he was on a small panel there dealing with clergy sex crimes and cover ups. Flores did little or nothing that showed any real courage or compassion.

It's very reassuring to know that Ratigan can never hurt another child. At the same time, the bank robber gets 50 years while the guy who drove the getaway car does no jail time.

MO - Victims blast ‘silly & deceptive’ church abuse report

For immediate release: Thursday, Sept. 8           

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

Two Kansas City Catholic officials, Bishop Robert Finn and Carrie Cooper, in an act of stunning callousness, have issued a four page abuse ‘report’ that is deceptive and pathetic and harmful. It hides key information, hurts victims, and helps no one.

http://www.diocese-kcsj.org/_docs/OCYP_Report_2013_final_reduced.pdf

First, today Shawn Ratigan is being sentenced. Finn and Cooper rub salt into the wounds of Ratigan’s victims by pulling a carefully-crafted public relations stunt on a long-awaited day of closure for those who have suffered and are suffering because of Ratigan’s crimes and Finn’s crimes.

Letter to Bishop Zubik

Sept. 12, 2013

Dear Bishop Zubik:

We are members of a self-help group called SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. Our mission is to heal the wounded, protect the vulnerable and expose the truth.

Your soon-to-be newest public relations staffer, veteran journalist Ann Rodgers, has spent her professional career trying to expose the truth. We hope she’ll be better able to persuade you to do this than we have. We’ll keep trying, nonetheless.

Specifically, we want you to expose the truth about two priests: Fr. Alan E. Caparella and. Fr. Richard Deakin. Both spent time in Pittsburgh. Both molested elsewhere. Both faced civil lawsuits.

MO - Notorious KC predator priest to be sentenced

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)

Shawn Ratigan should be locked up for as long as possible. He shows no signs of remorse or rehabilitation. Ample evidence suggests that he would commit more child sex crimes if ever given the chance to be around kids.
