MN - Catholic officials want more secrecy; SNAP responds
For immediate release: Monday, Jan. 13, 2013
Minnesota Catholic officials want a judge to give them a break and slow down the forced disclosure of names of priests who are accused of abuse. That’s irresponsible.
Any such delay would endanger kids. These accused priests have already been protected and hidden and transferred for decades. No good comes from further delay.
Delays give those who commit and conceal child sex crimes more chances to intimidate victims, threaten whistleblowers, discredit witnesses, destroy evidence, invent alibis and practice “spin.” That’s why it’s irresponsible to give secretive and self serving Catholic officials - who have already shown, time and time again, a decades-old pattern of jeopardizing kids and protecting predators – any more time to keep the identities of dangerous and potentially dangerous child molesters hidden.
Every day the names of proven, admitted and credibly accused child molesting clerics are kept secret, innocent children are at risk.
