My Perp Left off Chicago Archdiocese Report on Pedophile Priests

City of Angels
October 13, 2010

I wonder how many other victims are having this experience.

In the recent VOTF et al report they mention "publicly accused" priests and "credibly accused" priests found in the Chicago Archdiocese. Well my sister and I have both accused publicly a perp priest whose name is missing from the report. My sister quietly, me in my blog here and on AlterNet several times since 2007, in print, with pictures.

Yet Father Thomas Barry Horne of Bartlett, Illinois, St. Peter Damian parish, 1949-1975 is not in any database or report.

In February 2008, Horne was added to the Bishop Accountablity database, but his name disappeared from under H around February 2010. The VOTF report released October 11, 2010, used the Bishop Accountability database to figure its statistics.

How many more victims anonymously or quietly accusing priest sex crimes in Chicago have had their voices stifled like this?

With me having this experience, there could be dozens more priests in the Chicago Archdiocese whom victims accuse, but whose identities the Archdiocese and this report both continue to keep secret.

I accused Father Horne-y publicly, loudly, and in media. And I can't see his name in a report or database anywhere, even as an accused priest?

I wonder how many other victims are having this experience.
