Confidentiality clauses: Bishops ‘lack moral leadership’

Unfortunate statement from the New Zealand arm of Survivors Abused by Priests (SNAP) criticises attempt by Male Survivors Otago to expand male survivors access to support services.

The leadership of SNAP Aotearoa, quoted in the article, has maligned a recent agreement with the Bishop of Dunedin for Male Survivors Otago to provide support for male survivors who are referred by the Church. This commercial-in confidence collaborative arrangement, designed to help male survivors, has been referenced by SNAP as part of an ongoing ‘cover-up’ process that enables the church to avoid public scrutiny of its abuse activities. This ludicrous claim simply exposes the incompetent leadership of SNAP Aotearoa and should be a cause for concern for survivors who rely on this organisation for support.
