New claims in priest sex abuse scandal


By Evelyn Holmes
February 11, 2006 - The sex abuse scandal in the Roman Catholic Church continues to make headlines as several survivors of abuse are turning up the heat--releasing new names of priests accused of abuse.

Because of the priest sex scandal Cardinal Francis George has a number of detractors. He will preside over mass Sunday morning at Holy Name Cathedral and supporters plan to be there to rally in support of him. Meanwhile, victims' rights groups plan on turning up the heat.

Dwain Singleton and David Nolan want the archdiocese to know they're survivors and no longer victims of priest sexual abuse.

"Instead of investigating and coming out, you know, requesting information from us to find out exactly what was going on, they try to crush it," said Dwain Singleton, Alleged Victim.
