Re: “Demonstration planned on defrocked priest

I am so amazed at the comments of many here. At first they appear to identify with the victim but then they go on to trash them and SNAP. Please SNAP does not need any help in staying relevant. It is a self-help organization made up of volunteers (NOT PAID) that often were victims of clergy sexual abuse. We wish we were not relevant but yet where is a victim to turn to for help? Certainly I pray not to the many defenders of these monsters that have posted here. I was silent for over 35 about my abuse and then it took another 9 years to speak about what actually my rapist did to me and that was after counseling sessions. The stigma and horrific effects of this crime remain for a life time. Some comments posted here show very little understanding of this crime and I suspect those that made those comments really down care. They just wish we would shut up and go away; hence trashing SNAP. Well here is a hot news flash, we aren’t going away. We will continue to remain here so that when a victim decides to reach out for help, they will get it. You really have to ask yourselves this; why are victims reaching out to us and not the Church? Why is that and don’t even me that money crap. And for those that think this is all about the money; let me ask you this: How much would it cost me to let me rape one of your children or grandchildren? See how stupid your argument sounds now?

We as SNAP are not against any Church or faith group. I happen to have a strong and close relationship with my Savior. I propose to you that we want to work with religious leaders to help affect real change to protect our children. Your arguments are not with SNAP but the religious leaders that fail to follow even their own policy. Just go to www.darkness2light.org and read about some real stats that should get your attention. Folks this is crime is real and unfortunately the number of victims are rising. I often speak to religious groups, churches, schools showing a DVD project Sacred Secret that was produced by Andrea Conte, former First Lady of Tennessee and her group; You have the Power, www.yhtp.org to educate the faith community of how to deal with this crime if it happens in your church. It is a start.

Please let’s keep the focus and light on the protecting our children; otherwise we fail.
