An organization called SNAP, Survivors Network for those Abused by Priests, is reacting to penalties handed down to Penn State University by the NCAA.
The organization says, "A few will argue that the program has been punished too harshly. We disagree entirely. Vacating wins is a hollow punishment that will be forgotten by the time the next season begins. Bans from bowl games have been issued in the past because players traded championship rings for tattoos. This is not a punishment that is equal to the horrific crimes that happened at Penn State."
Within days of Jerry Sandusky's conviction, a Philadelphia jury convicted the first U.S. Catholic church official, Monsignor William Lynn, for endangering children by failing to protect them from known abusers.
