SNAP say sex abuse claims against Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis surpass 400

Ray: In the inimitable style of attorneys wanting to make their point, Anderson does not say how many new "abusers" are mentioned in these complaints. Right now, about 80 abusers are known to have been active in the St Paul Minneapolis Archdiocese in the past 65 years. Many of them are dead, many removed from ministry already and a large number already retired.
Clergy sex abuse claims against the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis poured in as the 5 p.m. deadline approached Monday. By the end of the day, the scope of the church’s problem was more clear: Attorneys counted more than 400 claims.

Attorneys representing sex abuse victims had been working around the clock to prepare the claims, stemming from the sexual abuse of children by dozens of Catholic priests over decades.
