The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests
SNAP Press Statement
December 13, 2007
Response to National Review Board report
Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 862 7688 home, 314 503 0003 cell)
Self-praise leads only to reckless complacency. And it rubs salt into the already deep and still fresh wounds of hurting victims and betrayed Catholics. When bishops take begrudging, belated steps that largely amount to 'window dressing,' this is no cause for celebration.
Training volunteers and fingerprinting employees and teaching children are primarily common sense legal defense moves and smart public relations gestures. Are they better than nothing? Of course. Do they solve the problem? Absolutely not.
