Perspective: In the spirit of the holiday season, Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests finds it worth noting a couple of U.S. bishops who have distinguished themselves from their largely complacent and sometimes duplicitous colleagues when dealing with clergy sex crimes and cover-ups.
Commentary: There are solid, practical steps the U.S. bishops can take right now to protect kids, expose wrongdoers and heal the wounded — no Vatican approval necessary.
NCR Today: A recent article claimed "the church resolutely ignores SNAP's voice" and that SNAP has no "organized" approach to healing. Our history strongly suggests otherwise.
Commentary: When you're told, "We've reported to law enforcement," insist on seeing proof. To church officials, the phrase "reported to authorities" can mean something very different.
