Statement Regarding Bishops' Report on Diocese Surveys

Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests

Our message today is very simple.

First, prudent people will wait for proof before assuming these so-called reforms are working.

Second, much of what's being touted as reform is irrelevant or ineffective

Third, the crux of this crisis fundamentally remains unaddressed.

Before we talk specifics, take a minute and remember how all this came about.

Bishops have devised the rules of play, hired the umpires, chosen the players, and in about an hour, will declare that they're winning.
