I have the same problem as Tele-Pet "QGIS Cannot be opened because of a problem. Check with the developer to make sure QGIS works with this version of OS X. You may need to reinstall the application. Be sure to install any available updates for the application and OS X." – Tele-Pet 2 days ago", with the only difference being that the message is in Spanish (my system language). iMac 20", early 2008, 2.66GHz, 4GB memory, OS X 10.11.1
Thanks for any help you can provide

This is not exactly a solution, but I am able to run QGIS 2.12 since downgrading my OS from El Capitan back to Yosemite. Specifically, after backing up needed data, I wiped my drive and installed Yosemite via a USB stick that installed a Yosemite installer onto.

I'm running QGIS 2.12 just fine in OSX El Capitan. Try to reinstall some additional frameworks as suggested before. Other possible cause, if the first suggestion fails is some misplaced or bad installed item into this folder: "/Users/your user name/.qgis2". This is an invisible folder. To access it, try to open a window, do CMD+SHIFT+G and paste this line with your correct user name: /Users/your user name/.qgis2
Try to remove everything from inside and restart qgis. You will loose recent project menu access, installed plugins and so, but you can get a stable QGIS. After you only need to re-download your favorite plugins.
