Reports Continue That Lists of Abusive Priests Released by Bishops Are Incomplete

Two days ago, I wrote,
One bishop after another is claiming that there have not been cases of abuse in his diocese for years now, and the lists being released are almost entirely names of priests who have been dead for some time. Many survivors are pointing out that they can testify that the lists being released are not complete, since they personally known of priests whose names are not on the lists being released.

Then I told you I have had phone calls from people telling me that this is true of the list released by the bishop in the Catholic diocese in which I live, the Little Rock diocese: people are telling me they know of priests whose names are not on the list of abusive priests in Arkansas released recently by Bishop Anthony Taylor.

Now there’s the following:
Mercedes Mackay, “Advocates for priest abuse survivors says three priest names are missing”:

Thursday an advocate group for priest abuse survivors called out priests who were left off a recent Jefferson City Diocese “credibly accused list.”

SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, met outside of the Cathedral of St. Joseph to voice their concerns about the list.
