Parent’s Group Oversees Cleaning up the Catholic Priest Sex Abuse Scandals

If you are not aware of the "Clean up" of the Catholic Preist Sex abuse scandals, this may all be new to you.  There is a concerned parents organization that is currently head quartered in the suburbs of Minneapolis/St Paul that is very concerned with how things are being cleaned up and the effect that the clean up may have on their children.  This group is starting to make some national waves.

The letter below is a letter that went out to there readers and I believe their concerns are worth taking a look at.


Subject: Primary Educators League Update – Safe Environments


Dear parents,

Thanks for participating in Thursday evening’s "safe environments" presentation in


. 100 parents from 30 parishes attended. That brings the

total to 250 parents from 60 parishes who have attended one of the two meetings held thus far.

Key issues:

1 We’re considering holding another meeting perhaps south of the river for the southern suburbs. Please let us know if can help us organize parents to


2) Get educated on “safe environments” and discuss with fellow parishioners. Join together before going to speak with your pastor, principal or Dir. of Religious Education. The clock is ticking…

3) Our web site and blog will be updated daily. Check back frequently for the latest at and

4) Encourage others to join our e-mail list. More than 200 people have joined in the last two weeks.

5) FICC Approvals: please let us know if you hear of other parishes receiving approval from Archbishop Flynn to use “Formation in Christian Chastity.”


6) Several articles broke in the press yesterday on Primary Educators and “Safe Environments”

7) USCCB released its 3rd audit on the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People: Total cost to date of the sex abuse scandal for the Church – $1.5 billion.

A question was raised at the meeting that if the clergy sex abuse crisis was due to homosexual priests abusing children, why are we doing VIRTUS?

The National Review Board and the John Jay report revealed that 81% of the abuse cases involved boys ages 11-17. However, since many of the priests involved did not self identify themselves as homosexual, many Church officials and overseers will not say we have a homosexual priest problem. They say the crimes were “homosexual in nature.” That’s as far as they go. (If it walks like a duck…talks like a duck…it must be a duck – right? Not so according to the experts).

So who supports VIRTUS? A local homosexual activist group was one of the early supporters of our archdiocese implementing VIRTUS. Don’t miss the latest entry on the blog at:

Please continue to pray for Archbishop Flynn, our priests and for the protection of our children.

God bless,

Primary Educators League

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
