SNAP Press Release
Clergy sex abuse victims blast archdiocesan spending
Catholic officials spend thousands on political & legal battles elsewhere
SNAP also questions whether allegedly suspended priest has been ousted
Three recent church documents suggest recently-sued cleric is still working
Group urges Carlson to force accused predator to come back to US for treatment
It’s also worried that archdiocese admits paying nothing for therapy for pedophiles
They will provide three recent church documents that suggest that the allegedly ousted priest is still in active ministry.
Months ago, SNAP urged church officials to disclose Hederman’s whereabouts and insist that he enter a treatment program. The group’s requests have been ignored.
SNAP is also upset that newly released archdiocesan figures show that
SNAP believes that if Carlson has extra funds, he should use the money to get treatment for victims and predators, and put predators in treatment centers.
SNAP feels the archdiocese is actually moving ‘backwards’ because , in years past, accused predator priests were quickly sent away for psychological assessment, which the group suspects has not happened with Hederman.
The group notes that in 2005 the archdiocese spent $500,000 to keep a convicted predator, Fr. Thomas Graham, out of jail.
