SNAP DENOUNCES SECRECY AMID NEW CATHOLIC SEX ABUSE ALLEGATIONS!!!
This Sunday . . . The Support Network Of Those Abused By Priests continues to call Kansas City Bishop Finn to task . . .
SNAP: Two new abuse allegations at KC Catholic schools
"Why the continuing delays and secrecy? If they suspended a teacher for alleged abuse, why did they not tell parents and the public? And if they learned of abuse allegations on March 3, why did KC Catholic officials conceal them until March 13?
"Those ten days of secrecy gave a potential criminal plenty of time to destroy evidence, intimidate victims, threaten whistle blowers, discredit witnesses, fabricate alibis, “lawyer up,” and molest more children.
"Finn and his top aides have some tough questions to answer. In a rigid hierarchy like the Catholic church, it's virtually certain that St. Thomas More principal Brian Borgmeyer did not unilaterally decide to suspend a teacher for alleged child sex crimes, bring in a replacement, and hide the allegations for days, weeks or months. It's virtually certain that he consulted with church officials at the diocesan headquarters before he opted to quietly sit on the first set of allegations and the suspension."
