The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests

SNAP Press Statement

Statement on Nebraska Excommunications

 

For immediate release:
Friday, Dec. 8, 2006

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, national director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790 cell, 314 645 5915 home)

What signal does it send when not one of the thousands of pedophile priests or hundreds of complicit bishops has been excommunicated? Apparently, a lay person sending a $20 membership fee to some non-profit group is worse than a bishop sending a known serial child molesting cleric to another parish.

(SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the nation's oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. We've been around for 17 years and have more than 7,000 members across the country. Despite the word "priest" in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers. Our website is SNAPnetwork.org)
