CNN to air segment on Wisconsin priest who fathered then abandoned son and church's attempt to silence mother

Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) - November 11, 2009

by Barbara Dorris - SNAP Outreach Director
CNN will be airing a segment this Thursday, November 12, at 9:00 pm CST about Pat Bond and her son Nate. Nate is the child of a priest and is currently battling brain cancer. Pat, Nate's mother, has been forced to fight for support for her son. Until the article appeared in the New York Times, the priest was still a pastor in a Wisconsin parish.

Note - he's also accused of molesting a girl. We suspect that unless other victims and witnesses come forward, sooner or later, he will be put back into a parish.

This show will have a call in segment. Please call and express your feelings about this story.

Here is some background information:
