East Tennessee areas where pedophile priests have been assigned
SNAP of Tennessee has asked Bishop Richard Stika repeatedly to tell the people of East Tennessee where abusive priests have been assigned and when. He has taunted us and refused to do so. Now the diocese of Nashville has done the work that he should have done for the people of the Knoxville Diocese long ago.
NINE OUT OF THIRTEEN PRIESTS WHOSE NAMES HAVE BEEN RELEASED BY THE DIOCESE OF NASHVILLE HAVE BEEN ASSIGNED IN EAST TENNESSEE IN THE GEOGRAPHICAL AREA THAT IS THE DIOCESE OF KNOXVILLE
