Victim advocates take anger over Lynn decision to church

LAST UPDATED: Monday, December 30, 2013

Under a steady rain Sunday, Judy and Chuck Miller took up spots that have often been occupied by child-abuse victim advocates: the steps of the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul.

Judy Miller leads the Delaware branch of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), a group that hosted regular protests after the 2011 grand jury report about clergy sex-abuse in Philadelphia.

Her return Sunday was prompted by last week’s Superior Court ruling that overturned the conviction of Msgr. William J. Lynn, the central figure in the case.

“In my humble opinion, he was certainly guilty,” Miller, 74, said as she and her husband handed leaflets to attendees at the Mass.
