PA - Second SNAP statement re Brennan charges
For immediate release: Wednesday Oct 23, 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)
This is dreadfully sad. A predator priest walks free and kids are at risk. Despite Fr. Robert Brennan’s age we still feel he is dangerous. (Most predators use cunning and manipulation not physical prowess to hurt kids)
It is clear what Archbishop Chaput will do now: virtually nothing. At most he might put a tiny mention of Brennan in his archdiocesan newspaper but more likely he will stay silent. And it is clear what he SHOULD do: personally visit each parish where Fr Brennan (starting with the most recent one) and beg victims, witnesses and whistleblowers to call the police. It is also clear what everybody who saw suspected or suffered Fr. Brennan’s crimes should do: speak up now!
