Chaput to be Named Archbishop of Philadelphia

Well, it looks like I was wrong. The National Catholic Reporter is writing that it has confirmation that Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver will be the next archbishop of Philadelphia. According to NCR, the popular choice, or at least the name submitted to Pope Benedict, was Archbishop Kurtz, the Pope chose Chaput. Chaput, of course, is well known for fighting legislation in Colorado that would have given an opportunity to abuse survivors to file claims against their abusers and the institutions that protected them. We’ll have to wait and see how he handles the inherited abuse situation in Philadelphia.
