      If your concerns about violence are limited to property damage and looting, and you have never shed two tears for the history of institutional violence, murder, colonialism, segregation, lynching, genocide and police brutality against peoples of color, your words mean nothing; they mean less than nothing. Your outrage, in such a case is grotesque, an inversi […]

“SNAP Needs Our Help”: Guest Post Response

Following the post on these pages by Frank Cocozzelli  “SNAP Needs our Help“, we have received these words of thanks in the comments thread.  As comments can easily be missed, I have copied it as a Guest Post , where it will have greater visibility.

-Terence

Good morning,

Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. We have made great progress in the past few years but sadly rarely a day goes by that we do not hear from new victims of clergy abuse.
Our National Conference will be in Chicago the weekend of July 30 to August 1. We would like to invite your readers to join us for this event. Speakers in the past have included Frank Keating, former head of the bishops lay review board, Fr. Tom Doyle, a canon lawyer and out spoken critic of the way the hierarchy has handled the abuse crisis and Jason Berry a journalist who has written extensively about this issue.Thank you again for all your help. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
