Omaha priest accused of abuse; SNAP responds
We are grateful that a victim of Fr. Salanitro is stepping forward. When victims stay silent, nothing changes. But when victims find the courage to take action, there's at least a chance for prevention, healing and justice.
If you were hurt by a priest, suffering in shame, isolation and self-blame won't fix it. Only by stepping forward, speaking up and getting help can you both recover personally and help others. Now's the time to do it.
Let’s hope that every person who has any information or suspicions that could shed light on these allegations will find the courage and strength to call police so that the full truth might become clear.
Finally, in what other institution does an accused criminal get to write a letter to a group of members? The letter from parishioners should come from the archbishop, not from the accused child predator.
