Inquiry: Pell knew of abuse by Australian pedophile priest

CANBERRA, Australia — Australian Cardinal George Pell knew that a
notorious pedophile priest had been sexually abusing children years
before his arrest and had been aware of the Catholic Church's clergy
abuse problem since the early 1970s, a government inquiry concluded.

A report from the inquiry on child sexual abuse had been released in
2017, but findings concerning Pell — who was formerly Pope Francis'
finance minister and at one time the third-highest ranking cleric in
the Vatican — had been redacted until Thursday to avoid prejudicing
juries in any future prosecutions.

The government decided to release the full report after the High Court
last month overturned convictions against Pell on charges he molested
two choirboys in a Melbourne cathedral in the late 1990s when he was
an archbishop. The 78-year-old cleric spent 13 months in prison before
being released last month.

The findings undermine Pell's criticisms of what he described as the
church's inadequate response to the global abuse crisis and concealing
its extent.

Pell, who now lives in a Sydney seminary, said in a statement that he
was "surprised by some of the views" of the inquiry about his actions.

"These views are not supported by evidence," Pell said.

The inquiry rejected Pell's evidence given by video link from Rome in
2016 that he was deceived and lied to by church officials about
Australia's worst pedophile priest, Gerald Ridsdale, and disturbed
Melbourne parish priest Peter Searson.

Ridsdale is in prison on convictions for sexually abusing boys over
three decades.

Sadly just confirms what was basically known about Pell's role in the
cover-up of abuse and the movement of abusers to keep abusing by the RCC

abusing.

No the RCC has a history of great evil. The inquisitions alone show
great evil and the tradition of pedophilia just the icing on the cake.

Bolsheviks committed the greatest human slaughter in modern
history,and the fact that the world is largely ignorant and uncaring
about this fact is proof that the global media are in the hands of the
perpetrators

and the Jews deserved to die in the Holocaust according to you. BTW the
Spanish Inquisition wasn't to keen on the Jews or protestants either. Of
course as I'm sure you don't know the Spanish Inquisition was not the
only one.

What your rant has to do with the covering-up of sex abuse, the enabling
of sex abusers and the other evil in the RCC I'm not sure

Go after the larger number of sex abusers. Step fathers, coaches,
teachers, and civil servants. You'll get a lot more abusers and
identify many times the victims.

To Patrick Barker RCC priest have the right to rape kids in Jesus
name. Then go out and pretend to forgive sins, marry people and give
last rites, all before washing their hands.

Are you suggesting Patdick is misrepresenting ' "Suffer little children,
and forbid them not, to come unto me:" or me unto them '

The worse hypocrisy is those that covered it up and enabled it all to
protect the RCC name/product

I'm for going after all abusers wherever they are. However I'm also
believe that those people in organisations that covered-up the abuse and
worse allowed that abuse to continue/enable them e.g. Harrington case in
Tas should be brought to justice.

No that isn't truth. Any that disagreed with the RCC were victims.
You do know the inquisitions went on for centuries.

No unless you are calling history "crap media opinion". I do
believe the RCC as a religious institution is crap.

Yes, it is. It was driven by Ferdinand and Isabella, crusading against
Islam and uniting Spain.

That was the case from the time of Constantine the so-called Great.

That is like saying all Irish men - world wide - are alcoholics.
Or that the world wide epidemic of black men being involved in the
criminal justice system should have better reprocussions.

Fran is a 'looser' what?

I continue to be amazed how ignorant septics are of their own history.
I've just spent time, on TPG, explaining the role of France in the
American Revolution. Showing that without the French the revolution may
not have started let alone succeed. He thought the French had a few
boats at Yorktown and that was it.
