Wisconsin abuse victims push to open files
Hundreds of pages may implicate NY's Cardinal
Apparently, Chaput has unilaterally revised the American bishops’ child sex abuse policy.

West Virginia’s top Catholic official is rejecting a plea from clergy sex abuse victims for a public meeting about child sex abuse allegations against him.

Dear Bishop Bransfield:
We belong to a support group called SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. Our mission is to heal the wounded and protect the vulnerable and expose the truth about clergy sex crimes and cover ups.
Now that America’s most notorious serial child molester will stay behind bars, the focus will shift from the Penn State staffer who committed child sex crimes to the three Penn State staffers who concealed those crimes.
