We are learning that church officials will use any tactic they can get away with:
–to keep their power
–to protect their image
–to not be held accountable
–to keep themselves out of jail… for covering up sex crimes against kids.
To all victims who have been sexually abused by clerics, your voices are strong, powerful, and being heard…!.. The church officials can’t shut us up. They can’t shove all the victims back under their control of silence.
Crimes have been committed and the can of worms has been opened, and
that is only because very brave victims of clergy sex abuse are speaking
up, coming forward, contacting the police, exposing the truth, and
trying their hardest to not allow another child to be given the life
sentence of harm which they were dealt.
For those who wish to help …On our website – SNAPnetwork.org – are
simple suggestions for helping victims beat back this assault against
them by top Catholic officials. Please check it out. Thanks.
