New York – The archdiocese of New York has published a list of clergy credibly accused of abuse of minors, but missing from the list are names of several notorious clergy. Sources confirm Cdl. Timothy Dolan is hiding out in a mansion in Sloatsburg during the list’s release.

Published Friday, the list of 120 priests only includes archdiocesan clergy and “does not include priests belonging to religious orders or institutes [or] ‘extern’ priests who were ordained in other dioceses.”

All named clergy have either been removed from ministry or are deceased.

The name of Fr. Thomas Kreiser does not appear on the list, indicted by a grand jury for molesting a minor.

Kreiser, arrested in September for abusing a 10-year-old girl and now facing trial, had reportedly been recommended last year for a pastorship by chancery officials — in spite of the fact that he’d been caught in 2011 embezzling $25,000 from his parish to spend on personal expenses, including online gambling.
