MN--Archbishop Neinstedt resigns
For immediate release Monday, June 15
Statement by Barbara Dorris, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests
Though he has resigned, we still believe Neinstedt should be punished for enabling a predator to hurt kids.
We hope these Vatican panels will quickly take up the Neinstedt case so that cover-ups will be deterred and kids will be safer.
Please see additional SNAP statement released today regarding the new Tribunal for Bishop Negligence:
(SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. SNAP was founded in 1988 and has more than 20,000 members. 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.
