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.

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

Wernz-Vidal: "One cannot consider as Schismatics those who Refuse to Obey the Roman Pontiff because they would hold his person Suspect or, because of Widespread Rumors, Doubtfully Elected"

    Pope Francis is tottering on the precipice of Hell. None of this means he isn't the pope, and such talk among the laity is scandalous in its own right. Not a single cardinal in that 2013 conclave has come out and said the election was rigged and Bergoglio isn't the pope, that he is in fact an anti-pope . If he is, a future pope can declare that, when Jorge Bergoglio will no longer be a pope. But if the very men gathered in conclave haven't made that public accusation,  anyone who is suggesting that better take into account that they too will have to give an account of themselves to Almighty God when they die . Such talk adds to the scandal of the "little ones," the simple, even potential converts, who, when they hear big-mouth Catholics on social media saying he's not really the pope, draw back from approaching the Church. Do any of us desire to stand in front Our Blessed Lord as the Supreme Judge and explain why, in our desire for more c

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
