SNAP Protests Handling of Accused Priest
January 22, 2012
Demonstrators gathered outside Holy Name Cathedral Sunday while mass was being held, protesting the archdiocese and its handling of a priest accused of abuse.
The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests wants Cardinal George to take more forceful action against Father George Klein.
In a letter, church officials say they've determined Klein's conduct with a girl in the 1970's was inappropriate but did not constitute sexual abuse of a minor.
SNAP leaders say the church is splitting hairs.
They passed out fliers and asked parishioners to call for Klein's removal from the ministry.
