SNAP responds to promotion of Archbishop Timothy Dolan

Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests

As long as the Pope keeps promoting church officials who keep parishioners in doubt, victims in pain, and kids at risk, there will be more child sex crimes.

Dolan is the Teflon prelate – through superb public relations, when he acts recklessly and callously with kids’ safety, he’s almost always able to deny and deflect blame. Dolan is by far the most media-savvy Catholic official on the planet, so we’re not surprised the pope has promoted him.
