Why Francis won’t back down on Barros
Why won’t Pope Francis back down on an obviously and severely hurtful move: giving Bishop Juan Barros Madrid his own diocese.
The wise whistleblower of the Twin Cities, Jennifer Haselberger, puts her finger on precisely why. In essence, she says that if every cleric who ignored, concealed and enabled clergy sex crimes were deemed ineligible for promotion, there would be as many rudderless chancery offices as there are shuttered churches. (I suspect that, in fact, there would be more. . .)

SNAP Conference Postponed to September
As cases of COVID-19 continue to dominate the headlines, affect the way we work and play, and force changes to our daily lives, we have decided to postpone the SNAP Annual Conference from July until September. We are now planning to hold the conference from September 25 - 27 and it will still be held in Denver, CO.
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
