His former employer, Cornerstone University, fired Balyo on Saturday.

    Hopefully this guy will be kept behind bars and away from kids for a long time.

    It takes a lot of courage to speak up and take action about being sexually abused. It is not an easy thing to do, but it is extremely rare that a child predator has only one victim. Some have many. Child predators need to be kept far away from kids forever. It’s never too late to come forward about being sexually abused. So let’s hope that anyone who may have knowledge or may have been harmed by John Balyo, will find the courage to speak up, get help, and contact law enforcement, no matter how long ago it happened.

    Your silence only hurts, and by speaking up there is a chance for healing, exposing the truth, and therefore protecting others

    SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. SNAP was founded in 1988 and has more than 20,000 members. Despite the word “priest” in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers and increasingly, victims who were assaulted in a wide range of institutional settings like summer camps, athletic programs, Boy Scouts, etc
