Milwaukee Sex Abuse Archbishop Has Center Named after Him

Sex Abuse Archbishop is retired but his legacy lives on in Milwaukee as professional Victims Make Demands of new Archbishop..

MILWAUKEE -- A local sex abuse survivors group is challenging Milwaukee's archbishop designate to make major changes during his first three months in the archdiocese.

The "Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests," or SNAP, said they want Bishop Jerome Listecki to chart a new course in the diocese.

The group is calling for the resignation or firing of auxiliary bishop Richard Sklba.

Snap said Sklba was instrumental in covering up several sex abuse cases in the Milwaukee diocese.

They also want bishop Listecki to rename the Weakland Center at the cathedral.

The building is named after former archbishop Rembert Weakland, who admitted to a homosexual affair several years ago.

"We're here today to say to Archbishop Listecki, 'take your first 100 days and do a couple things to get this Weakland-Sklba era behind us,'" said SNAP's Peter Isley.
