A Jesuit priest working in a prominent south St. Louis parish has been admonished for a letter to the editor he penned to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch dissing the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP). So sez Msgr. John Borcic in a private email to an upset SNAP member. The injudicious (OK, offensive!) missive signed by the Rev. Edward R. Goldian, associate pastor of St. Mary Magdalen parish on South Kingshighway, includes this snarky line, “SNAP might also be translated as Swiftly Neuter Accused Priests.” The matter is being taken up by “an authority in the archdiocese,” said Fr. Borcic. (Fr. Borcic himself is no stranger to hyperbole. Several years ago, he used a website of the local archdiocese to accuse “the ACLU and others of the secular society” of being part of a movement to “destroy Christmas and just about anything Christian.” Christmas has survived, thank God!)
