Sex Abuse Victims Rip New Archbishop Dolan

The man chosen to head the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York hasn't done enough to address the problem of abusive priests, a group representing sex abuse survivors said Thursday.

Members of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests leafleted in front of St. Patrick's Cathedral to warn New York Catholics about Archbishop Timothy Dolan.

Dolan is now archbishop of Milwaukee and will take over the New York Archdiocese on April 15.

The abuse survivors' group said Dolan let known predators work in Milwaukee.

Dolan has defended his record in fighting abuse. In 2004 he released the names of priests who had been accused of molesting children.

A spokesman for the New York archdiocese said excellent policies are in place to deal with sex abuse.
