CHICAGO (CBS) — A few members of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, demonstrated in front of Holy Name Cathedral – praising Cardinal George but asking him to do more.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests is pleased Cardinal George intervened in a Joliet case of alleged abuse by a priest.

And they handed out fliers commending the cardinal.

But at the same time – their flier and their members – asked parishioners to ask the cardinal for more: to release more files on abusive priests.

“He said he was going to do it in 2008 and he hadn’t had time to do it yet. So we’re trying to encourage people to encourage him.”

One of the Holy Name parishioners who was handed the flier on her way out of mass was Lisa Daddono.

“Whatever we could do to protect children should be done. I don’t think it makes priests bad people. I don’t think it makes our religion bad. I just think there are measures that need to be taken to protect children.”

Newsradio has asked the Chicago Archdiocese for a response.
