A handful of folks are putting some pressure on the Diocese of Toledo on some hot topics: sexual abuse and the treatment of Father Gerald Robinson.
Members and supporters of SNAP: Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests gathered Monday to hand-deliver a letter to Bishop Leonard Blair outlining their concerns.
They want openness and transparency from the bishop about the church's current involvement and supporter of Father Robinson--who is jailed on charges of murdering a nun.
But, above all, they want to seek justice for the sexually abused.
"No one else in the State of Ohio has fought as hard to protect predators than the Catholic Conference of Ohio and Bishop Blair was one of those bishops leading the charge," said Barbara Blaine, SNAP President & Founder.
