Hundreds of priests abused Texas, USA children


This Associated Press video from the USA says about itself:

(1 Feb 2019) Catholic leaders in Texas on Thursday identified 286 priests and others accused of sexually abusing children. Some investigations dated back to 1950. The majority of those identified have since died.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

The leadership of the Roman Catholic Church in Texas has released the names of 286 clergymen who are accused of sexually abusing children. They worked at fourteen dioceses in the US American state.

The disclosure follows a similar publication in the state of Pennsylvania. In August last year, the authorities in that state published a report showing that in the past 70 years in Pennsylvania more than a thousand children have been abused by 300 priests. …

Just like in Pennsylvania, some suspicions in Texas go back more than seventy years. Many clergymen who are mentioned have since died.
