SNAP applauds removal of priest in Pittsburgh
It is a frightening fact that modern technology has greatly closed the gap between predators and children, and we urge parents to be vigilant about what kind of people are contacting their children online.
We are grateful to Pittsburgh law enforcement for looking into this matter and are grateful that Rev. Daniel Valentine has been removed from his parish. Bishop Zubik isn't a police officer or prosecutor. So he has no business minimizing Valentine's actions or claiming they weren't criminal. (It's doubtful law enforcement would be involved if the priest was talking to the child about Hot Wheels or Winnie the Pooh.)
We urge anyone who may have seen, suffered, or suspected Valentine’s misdeeds crimes will come forward and call police.
