Buffalo bishop revises priest abuse list, fends off critics

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo, New York, has added 36 names to its public list of priests with substantiated claims of sexual abuse of a child, bringing the total to 78.

Officials say they will not name an additional 66 dead priests who were the subject of a single abuse complaint.

Bishop Richard Malone released the revised list Monday and again fended off calls from some community members and other priests to resign over his handling of clergy abuse.

The diocese came under fire in March after releasing the names of 42 priests with substantiated allegations. Critics, including a former employee of the bishop, said the list should have been much longer.

The diocese says the updated list includes priests from other religious orders.
