* Regarding the report of a Voice of the Faithful meeting in Los
Angeles (NCR, March 21), the Santa Barbara affiliate would like to
comment. The article refers to the meeting as a VOTF/Call to Action
gathering and makes several references linking Voice of the Faithful
with SNAP, Survivors Network for those Abused by Priests. This article
might mislead readers into assuming that Voice of the Faithful
affiliates have alliances with these or other groups. While we at Voice
of the Faithful, Santa Barbara affiliate, support all efforts that
promote healing and positive structural change in our church, we endorse
the centrist position of Voice of the Faithful, an independent
organization that speaks with a moderate voice for all Catholic
