Texas Catholic Dioceses Release Long Awaited List

The Catholic Diocese of Corpus Christi and others across Texas has released a list of clergy that it believes could have sexually abused children.

The church hopes this action will help to rebuild trust in the institution, but others are left wondering if the real reason was nothing but sinister and self serving?

Of all the priests that are are named statewide, few are living. Most are either dead, retired or removed from the ministry.

The inclusion of a name on this list does not establish that the allegation was substantiated or proven to the Diocese of Austin, a court, or other authority, according to church officials. They also say that it does not establish that sexual abuse under the Texas Penal Code actually occurred.

The full list of accused clergy in Corpus Christi can be found here.
