New revelations are surfacing about Catholic employees castrating boys in the Netherlands and Catholic nuns essentially stealing babies in Spain.
Today, the US Supreme Court announced that they will not review the case of John Doe AP versus Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. Louis. This is a tragedy that will only make kids in Missouri, Utah, and Wisconsin more vulnerable to child molesters and employers from those states more reckless about children’s safety.
Two groups concerned with the clergy sex abuse and cover up scandal are challenging a priest who was the alleged lover of a serial pedophile to “an open public discussion” at a Catholic church Monday night. They are writing two Washington bishops about the cleric.
A new civil lawsuit charges that a teacher and coach at Christian Brothers High School in Sacramento sexually assaulted a female student in December 2009 and that Catholic church and school officials could and should have prevented the crimes.
We are very disappointed. Those who conceal suspected child crime from law enforcement should be severely punished.
We’re sad that another Catholic institution is harassing a brave advocate for victims. Jesuits should be ashamed of themselves for the entire Doug Perlitz scandal, which they are now making even worse by legally attacking a caring individual who has done much to expose Perlitz’ crimes and help Perlitz’ victims.
We're heartsick over these legal attacks and the chilling impact these church officials are having and will have on vulnerable and hurting victims, witnesses and whistleblowers. They are crippling our work to protect the vulnerable and heal the wounded, and rubbing even more salt into the already deep and still fresh wounds of hundreds of child sex abuse victims and thousands of betrayed Catholics.
Late last week, a Little Rock Circuit Judge Wendell Griffin (6th Judicial District) ruled that a clergy sexual abuse case will not be dismissed and can proceed toward trial.
Clergy sex abuse victims want a Catholic priest who was the alleged lover of a serial pedophile banned from a five day retreat he is set to lead next week in Yakima, Washington.
We’re here for three reasons – to help protect the vulnerable, help heal the wounded, and help deter future child sex crimes and cover ups.
We’re helping protecting the vulnerable by warning parents, parishioners and the public about a credibly accused child molesting church employee: James Moritz.

In order to help make this change easier, we will be charging only $99 for registration from now through June 30. Stay tuned for updates and register today on our conference page.SNAP Conference Postponed to September
