SNAP praises bishop, defends Church

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Apr 01, 2013

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) has issued a statement praising diocesan bishops who have responded energetically to the sex-abuse crisis, and voicing loyalty to the teachings of the Catholic Church. The SNAP statement said:

April Fool!

(No such statement has ever been released.)

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
