Boston Catholic Church Releases Only a Partial List of Priests Accused of Sexual Abuse; Names of 91 Other Priests Kept Hidden

| August 25, 2011

Since 1950, 248 priests and two deacons of the Catholic Archdiocese of Boston have been accused of child sexual abuse. Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston recently released the names of 159 of those priests, but curiously left 91 names off the list.

The Catholic Church has been criticized by many for its decades-long and continuing efforts to cover up these crimes and protect pedophile priests and other church officials.

O’Malley’s latest effort at transparency is not enough for some residents, including Stephen Clifford, who was allegedly abused by a Catholic priest while growing up in the Boston area. “I know that they know what this priest did to me,” Clifford said. “And the fact that he’s not on this list really makes me wonder, ‘Gosh, how many more are there like him that should be on the list, who aren’t?’

Clifford’s abuser is now dead, but, as with so many other child victims, the scars left behind resulting from the abuse remain with him to this day.
