SACRILEGE!!! OVERLAND PARK WALMART BABY CHOKER SUSPECT WAS A PRIEST!!! ADVOCATES AGAINST CLERIC ABUSERS DEMAND CHURCH COOPERATION WITH POLICE TO HELP FIND OTHER VICTIMS!!!
This week in the Kansas City metro . . . A former priest was accused of choking and attempting to steal a baby in an Overland Park Walmart.
Here's the aftermath and a reminder about the legacy of secrecy among some clerics by the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests . . .
SNAP: Victims want “outreach” about arrested priest
"A priest faces charges of strangling a four year old in a Kansas City suburb. His church supervisors and colleagues must aggressively reach out to others in KS, MO and NJ who may have seen, suspected or suffered other crimes by the cleric.
"All too often, when church staff and volunteers are arrested on criminal charges, their current and former church colleagues do nothing. All too often, corrupt church officials refuse to act and thus essentially protect criminals and endanger children. And all too often, secular officials with the power and duty to safeguard society’s most vulnerable pursue ONLY church staff who COMMIT abuse and ignore church staff who CONCEAL abuse . . .
"Church members and employees in any place this priest has been have a moral and civic duty to help law enforcement investigate and prosecute him. They’ll be tempted, of course, to do nothing. But that’s wrong. And their inaction might help enable the priest to exploit legal technicalities and escape punishment and hurt more kids."
