PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There was criticism from those gathered outside the building where Archbishop Chaput made the announcement regarding the priest administrative leave cases.

Many say the lack of information disclosed is disturbing. There were many questions. Like what exactly were the accusations and how the determinations were made. Among them, Voice of the Faithful member Sister Maureen Paul Turlish.

“I expect that the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church will be as accountable and transparent as they promised in 2002 through the USCCB. But they promise accountability and transparency but haven’t followed through on it since.”

A representative of SNAP, a survivors network of those abused by priests, says for those priests where the finding were “unsubstantiated,” it doesn’t mean they were innocent, just not enough information.
