The St. Louis chapter of SNAP recently took a simiilar step, posting the names of nearly 30 clergy who had molested kids.
One of the participants is a Tuscon AZ man, Gene Reedy, who was abused as a child by Christian Brother Francis Verngren, the former principal of St. Mary's Prepatory Grammar School in Berkley in the late 1960s. Verngren died just two weeks ago, and church officials have admitted that he abused other children too. Neither Reedy nor Verngren have spoken or been identified publicly before. Reedy hopes to reach out to others who were victimized by Verngren.
The group will also quote from the Dallas Charter, enacted by all American Catholic bishops in June 2002, which promises "openness and transparency" regarding abuse.
