But the group SNAP said it's not enough names, especially since the AG office has said there are at least 500 names of clergy not public yet.

You might think a 28-page list of Catholic priests from the Chicago Catholic archdiocese alone, against whom substantiated allegations of the sexual abuse of minors have been made, would more or less cover the scale of the danger the church and its priests represent to the children of Chicago.
But not a bit of it!
A further 72 names are to be added to the list. These are of deceased priests who have been posthumously accused of sexual abuse.
So does that total of 150 names cover it?
Not according to SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests) who point out that the attorney’s office has said there at at least another 500 [sic] names that have not yet been made public!
And this is just one American Catholic diocese.
Nor is that likely to be an end to the matter, since each release of names normally results in even more people finding the courage to come forward with yet more allegations against yet more priests. The Catholic Church is paying the price for decades of acting as a de facto paedophile ring with coverup and facilitation the norm. The question isn’t so much whether there had been abuse in any Catholic diocese or institution but by who and how many victims there were?
