The Victorian Police have been given the Green light to charge Cardinal George Pell with historic child sex abuse charges
SHARE IF YOU THINK HE SHOULD FACE JUSTICE !
Victoria Police are considering whether to charge Catholic Cardinal George Pell over sexual assault allegations dating back to the late 1970s after receiving advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Here’s the thing, even if they do charge him, The Cardinal is fully aware that the Vatican, or Holy See has never, nor will they ever, allow an extradition of one of their citizens…. no matter what they have been charged with.
However, we at FACAA still firmly believe he should be charged, if for no other reason than to make a statement … A very loud statement that says we do not care who you are, or where you are, if you abuse Aussie kids our justice system will come after you, hard !
The complaints include those by two men now aged in their 40s, from Cardinal Pell’s hometown of Ballarat, who say he touched them inappropriately in the summer of 1978-79 when he was playing a throwing game with them at the town’s pool.
Catholic Archbishop of Sydney, Timothy Fisher released a statement today saying Cardinal Pell was the victim of “relentless character attacks” in the media.
Of course it would be seen as a “character assasination.” Never mind about the children who had their bodies and characters attacked by predator Priests and their bretheren who refused to listen to their cries for help. Instead they punished them for their “lies” and moved the predator priests on to new diocese with new victims waiting to be abused.
No, of course It’s not a matter of where there’s smoke there’s fire. It’s not about how many child rapists he knowingly shuffled around to hide them from the justice they so completely deserved… no, it’s a character assasination…. seriously !
“Cardinal Pell has co-operated in every way with multiple police, parliamentary and royal commission investigations,” Fisher said.
If he had actually co-operated then we would have not had to fly 3 detectives over to the Vatican and he would not have appeared via video link during the Royal Commission…. oh, but he had such “important” work to do…
“Everyone supports just investigation of complaints but the relentless character attacks on Cardinal Pell, by some, stand the principle of innocent-until-proven-guilty on its head.
Absolutely, we agree… innocent until proven guilty. So fly home and face the hard questions, let justice take it’s course… be proven guilty or innocent in a court of law. If you have nothing to hide… then you have nothing to fear.
We at FACAA were cynical the moment it was announced that Cardinall Pell would be flying to the Vatican, we knew it meant he would never have to face the justice that we and other groups like Ballarat So Sad have been calling for him to face for many years now.
The creation of his position was far too coincidentally timed with the heat of the Royal Commission and other allegations landing at the Cardinal’s door, for our liking.
At the end of the day he is innocent until proven guilty but if he has nothing to hide and the Catholic church want to be seen as transparent, like they said they did, then he would simply fly home and have his day in court.
If you have nothing to hide then come home, as you have nothing to fear, but if you are as guilty as some say you are, then you will stay in the Vatican hiding behind the Holy See.
Time will tell which path he and the Catholic Church will choose. (A)
