UK - SNAP blasts UK vicar’s insensitive comments
We are disappointed that Rev. Dr. John Cameron would make such ignorant and hurtful claims about the alleged victims of Jimmy Savile. To publicly proclaim that the multitudes of victims making allegations against Savile are only doing so for a “cash-grab” is both obtuse and callous.
We urge Cameron's colleagues or supervisors and supporters to censure or demote or discipline him for his insensitive comments and to stand in solidarity with the victims who are courageously coming forward. It is always difficult for abuse victims to speak up, especially when their alleged abuser is a man who held massive popularity and sway. Comments like Rev. Cameron’s only make it more difficult for future victims to expose predators and protect others.
Wonder why and how thousands of child sex crimes and cover ups have happened, and are happening, in churches worldwide? In part, it's because of comments by men like Cameron and their timid supervisors who refuse to punish them for such insensitive comments.
