Has Francis Appointed Philly Archbishop Perez lacked Transparency on Clerical Sex Abuse & Child Porn Cases?

Today, Nelson Jesus Perez was named Archbishop of Philadelphia by Francis to succeed Archbishop Charles J. Chaput. It appears he and his past dioceses have apparently lacked transparency in clerical sex abuse and child pornography cases.

Archbishop Perez's episcopal service according to Wikipedia has been the following:

"Auxiliary Bishop of Rockville Centre[edit]

On June 8, 2012, Perez was appointed titular bishop of Catrum and auxiliary bishop of the Rockville Center, New York, by Pope Benedict XVI.[4] He received his episcopal consecration on July 25, 2012."

"Bishop of Cleveland[edit]

On July 11, 2017, Pope Francis appointed him Bishop of Cleveland.[5][6] He was installed as the 11th Bishop of Cleveland on September 5, 2017."
[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nelson_J._Perez]

According to Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. Injury Lawyers, Perez's first diocese as bishop has spend at a minimum of over 1 million dollars and probably very much more because of sex abuse settlements:

"Within the Rockville Centre Diocese, as of July 2019:

  • 297 claims had been filed
  • 250 settlements had already been paid or were in the process of being paid
  • Settlements have been between $25,000 and $500,000"
"Victims who settle through IRCP relinquish all rights to take legal action against the church."

Perez's first diocese was also one of "the last of the New York dioceses to release a list of credibly accused clergy members":

"The Diocese of Rockville Centre has been the last of the New York dioceses to release a list of credibly accused clergy members."

Moreover, News 5 Cleveland before it blocked access to the link revealed that Perez's present diocese's apparently has an unwillingness to "release the findings of the secret grand jury investigation" as related to this weeks, January 17, 2020, "21 count child pornography indictment" against Perez's priest Fr. Robert McWilliams. News 5 Cleveland reported:


According to the criminal complaint, McWilliams was in possession of child pornography... in 2016, again in 2018, and then again in 2019..."

"... The Survivors Network of the Abused by Priests [SNAP] thanked law enforcement for arresting McWilliams, but said there is still work to do. They released the following s
tatement:

'[W]e also call on Bishop Nelson Perez to release the findings of the secret grand jury investigation into his diocese. The only way to protect children is to be completely transparent.'"

Is it possible that the liberal news outlet is attempting to block information on its own new report on the Vatican Philadelphia archbishop appointment to protect the liberal Francis?

Below is all that is now found on their link. (Fortunately, the Catholic Monitor was able to type the above part of their report that applied to Perez before the news outlet totally blocked access from a previous internet phone connection that had not yet been blocked.):

"Page Not Found

We are sorry the page you are looking for cannot be found."

Is Francis appointed Archbishop Perez going to release "the secret grand jury investigation" into his present diocese before he goes to Philadelphia?

Is Perez going to be "transparent" on the sex abuse and child pornography in his present diocese?


Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N.

High-profile Lawyer Barnes: Amy Coney Barrett would be a Disaster

High-profile trial lawyer Robert Barnes who deals in civil, criminal and constitutional law reported on Twitter that Amy Coney Barrett would be a disaster. The Barnes Twitter report shows that Coney Barrett has " sid[ed] with the government on the lockdowns, on uncompensated takings, on excusing First Amendment infringements & Fourth Amendment violations...

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
