    TOO FUCKING LATE MATE

  2. Infidel Tiger 2.0 (Premium Content Subscribers Only)

    If he is true to his word then he will be arresting many a journo.

    And we must remember they are guilty until proven innocent.

  3. .

    Wait what, he can reject a police brief, but the police can issue a CAN and then lump him with a case he reckons is BS?

    I suspect the AG has intervened behind the scenes.

  4. 2dogs

    I think we need to petition the pope to give Pell a hearing before extraditing him, which will serve as an inquiry into the Anti-Catholic bigotry behind these charges.

    Turn the tables.

  5. Warty

    This is what the radical left have been seeking for years now. The ABC has had two stabs at the issue (to my knowledge) with some of the dodgiest ‘victims’ you’d ever wish to come across, coming out in support of their conspiracy theory. And now, collectively, one of the most left wing police forces in Australia has decided to act on a case that reeks of dingos’ droppings.
    Of course George Pell has sought leave to fight the charges, but don’t expect the egg on face to be widely reported. It won’t, but we’ll all come away believing the bloke is as guilty as hell, regardless of the outcome.
    Unfortunately the majority has not as yet been weaned off the appalling ABC.

  6. candy

    I’m of the opinion all CArdinal Pell is guilty of is having a detached type of personality, and not enough understanding/empathy at that very early time when the dreadful abuse came to light.

    However, that has translated for the media to judging him guilty of raping boys.

    Poor fellow, how terrible this is for him, just really awful to have his own country’s media against him, urging people to hate him and believe he is a child rapist. But he has the Holy’s Father’s support.

  7. stackja

    Get Pell MSM now be silent?

  8. Mother Lode

    and not enough understanding/empathy at that very early time when the dreadful abuse came to light.

    The first one to take it seriously enough to address the problem and to seek to help victims. First one to thereby publicly admit to something shameful.

    I think, Candy, you are confusing those confected chest beatings and widely circulated press releases (which always have the effect of putting the one denouncing beyond blame or suspicion), all the nostra culpa with real compassion.

    When the Cardinal has engaged with victims, listened to them, sought to reassure them and seek to make what amends lie within his power, what part of this do you think would need to be made public?

    And how many victims do you think want to be paraded about at all, much less as a prop for someone else’s moral posturing.

    The ABC TV program 7.30 pruducers must have missed the announcement.
    7.30 tonight described the child sexual charges as credible, reviewed the previous allegations against Pell and his previous responses, gave a commentary accompanying the police statement, played a “statement of relief” by a victim of sexual abuse, described the high significance of the event, and aired the views of activist and “child sexual abuse survivor” Peter Saunders including a statement that failure to charge Pell would have been an outrage.
    A part of the statement of charges by Victoria Police was shown with the police spokesman saying Pell has a right to due process, but no mention by the spokesman of the right to presumption of innocence during that process.
    All highly prejudicial.
    Is the ABC again demonstrating it is out of control?

    No doubt you are celebrating the fact that no leftoid website would allow you to spew anything but your tribal leftoid revenge porn.

    Candy:

    I’m of the opinion all CArdinal Pell is guilty of is having a detached type of personality, and not enough understanding/empathy at that very early time when the dreadful abuse came to

    Far from it, Candy. Although the drumbeat of lying propaganda from the left and their MSM has been endless on this matter.

    The problem was that male homosexual rockspiders infiltrated the Church to prey on the vulnerable. OK, that’s what those revolting perverts do.

    Funny how that point of view is never, ever mentioned by the left and their MSM, isn’t it?

    Cardinal Pell was the man who found out about the abuse and who started investigations which uncovered and stopped it, setting up the Melbourne Initiative in 1996 to assist victims and clear out the homosexual child molesters who had infiltrated the Church.

    His actions and behaviour all through this has been exemplary.

    That’s why the low-life rockspider-enablers of the ABC and Victorian senior left-wing society hate him. Not only did he stop the perversions of their besties, he had the moral courage to smack them around for supporting such vileness.

    They turned on him like a pack of hyenas over 20 years ago to punish him for opposing them.

    Please bear in mind that the ABC in particular and the Gramscian left in general has as their aim the same points as NAMBLA does when it comes to sexualising children (I present the child-grooming perversion of the ‘safe schools project’ in Victoria under the marxist trannie Mr Ross Ward as evidence), that the destruction of the Church is No.1 on their list and has been for nearly a century, and that they are all after someone elses money. In this case, the Church’s.

    As gerard Henderson reported, as early as the 1970s the ABC was inviting NAMBLA members to Australia and propagandising about lowering the age of consent to 6. Like most of the left, the ABC has always seethed with homosexuals, perverts and rockspiders.

    No, it’s a complete set-up and always has been.

    Marcus C, yes. It is a stitch up because he was close to Abbott 666 and an upholder of church doctrine. I think this is a disaster for the Luvvies (ABC, FauxFacts et al) as any halfway competent QC will shred the cred of the dupes and stooges the prosecution bring to the witness box. Then again, sez I, maybe the Catholic factions in Vicpol and the DPP have staged this as a way out – present a paper thin case and have their briefs fall apart in prosecuting the case. All that said, I think the persecution of Pell is an absolute outrage. and yet another reason why the ABC needs to be crushed and destroyed.

    Pell is a conservative therefore an enemy of the ruling elite and their regressive agenda. Therefore he must be destroyed by whatever means, including trumped up charges based on decades old alleged events. The corrupt and politicised police and the corrupt and political justice department and the corrupt and politicised judiciary will see to it.

    Therefore, Pell is guilty. Impeccable logic.

  40. Andrew

    The first one to take it seriously enough to address the problem and to seek to help victims. First one to thereby publicly admit to something shameful.

    Here’s why I have great trouble believing the allegations:

    1) Child rapists don’t normally call public investigations into child rape. It would be a frightfully odd thing to do.
    2) Having become a public figure as a Cardinal, and then from a prominent position called the enquiry, astonishingly none of the many alleged victims stuck their hand up in 1996 and said “Hey hang on, what about this bloke?” They decided to keep completely mute about the whole thing while money was being handed out bigly, and then only 20 years later in 2015-16 suddenly up and remembered that it was this Pell fellow all along.

  41. Haidee

    There’s no doubt that Cardinal Pell has powerful enemies, and they haven’t rested,
    but they won’t succeed in destroying him.

    As for the ‘detached personality’, it’s an appearance of remoteness, that’s all.

    It would take a mighty effort to “pray for those who persecute you”. Cardinal Pell will manage that.

    That is the end of the road for George Pell in the Vatican, regardless of the outcome

    Yes – I would have thought so. A trial and appeals will take years and he’ll be out of the political loop at the Vatican. So one way or the other the lefties will have destroyed his chances of promotion.

    There are no more promotions possible, unless Pope Francis were to die, and Cardinal Pell is not well enough to be pope.

  79. rickw

    Pell appears to have acted properly in his handling of p e d o’s infiltrating the church, it will be difficult for the Vatican to throw him under the bus.

    They clearly want members of the clergy to confront this sort of evil, so they can’t punish or sideline Pell for having done just that.

    What is particularly galling in this is that the p e d o enabling media, particularly the ABC have been hunting Pell on this for an eternity. Has the ABC been hunting their gay adoption poster men p e d o’s?

    “That is the end of the road for George Pell in the Vatican, regardless of the outcome — he will be pensioned off when the court case finishes,’’ a Vatican insider told The Australian.

    If true, it gives the Humble Pope an excuse to sideline a stalwart Defender of the Faith without too much fuss. The Pope doesn’t seem to have a problem with rockspiders at times, and is known to keep some questionable company (abortionists, atheists, Lutherans) and is considered by some to be, shall we say, not as supportive of faithful Catholics as he should be.

    He’s very Progressive, and has set aside Cardinal Burke, so why not Pell?

    The Left does have success in neutralising its enemies. Its enemy the Church? no, “the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”. Cardinal Pell is the stand-out good and faithful servant. There are many others, though not the champion he is. If he is weak in body, he’ll be strong in spirit.

Probably the socialist gangreenist =pope will plead for clemency from his Victorian comrades to appease the media . There is an unseemly bitchfight amongst the meadia comrades to see which one will be prosecutor . The destruction of the catholis enemies of u,n,communism and the caliphate proceeds well .

    I thought the Jesuits had , in fact, far fewer problems with historical child abuse allegations.

    There was a newspaper article about it a while back and there has only been one name at Xavier bandied about iirc.

    The child abuse scandals have never been consistently a worldwide problem eithet.

    It should be remembered that the terms of reference of the Royal Commission precluded any look at government institutions.

    If you want to know where the real problem is, it’s always wise to check what the government isn’t allowing to be examined.

    We like to have dissent here, do you have some thoughtful comments to contribute?

    That’s probably true of yourself, Sinc, LQC, Spartacus, etc, but the comments section are very much NOT areas where dissent is tolerated, least of all the thoughtful kind.
    In fact the level of triggering and the speed with which it occurs here when the majority position is even slightly questioned is not something that usually happens elsewhere online. The comment threads of the Cat are a unique thing on the internet.

    “I thought the Jesuits had , in fact, far fewer problems with historical child abuse allegations.”

    Want the facts on how the Jesuits operated? Ask around those who went to a Jesuit school. Start with me if you like and I’ll give you some history on what is was like to be a boarder in the 1950s. Not everyone who was assaulted in those days has come out screaming for justice, but the memories still remain.

    Pell exonerated in 2002. Still reported as ‘fact’.

    Goodness me trolling and flouncing even here. I am weary of the constant sniping at Pell from the State Media. I want justice done good and hard. Shine the cold light into the case and fright the roaches into the open to be dealt with, as to thier deserts. Especialy David Marr. No more fannying around. Time this got real. I am not familiar with reputable Media in Australia or ckose to this case. Would apreciate any tips as to where a fair and robust reportage can be found. THX in anticipation.

    Would you be willing to fight in a medically sanctioned MMA match to raise funds for this blog and a charity of your choice. Maybe we can get you a non-dweeb in the ring for you.

    This is where we need an independent Alt Media chappy of good character to sit in the Court rather than just reporters reporting on the miasma of thier own corrupted gasses. Any one lives in Melbourne fancy chucking together a few sangers and jumping on the tram for a day out?

    Would apreciate any tips as to where a fair and robust reportage can be found.

    Not fair but certainly robust is the collaboration of Fairfax, the New York Times, and La Repubblica.
    The NYT is using journalists Damien Cave, Jacqueline Williams and Michelle Innis to lead an expansion into Australia, and the Pell controversy is just the vehicle to support it. Former Fairfax Canberra office Williams started the Pell campaign with her story on Wednesday.
    Cave is to open the new Sydney bureau and lead the Australian team. He has experience in blog management, which will be important in the Pell case, as it allows Australian commenters to publish comments on the Pell case on the American edition and avoid sub judice “complications”.
    The La Repubblica (aka Repugnica) with its socialist-communist appeal will play for the Italian language fellow travellers in Australia, Italy and the Americas.
    Pell has absolutely no chance of facing the charges in an environment of presumed innocence.

    In mainstream media? Don’t make me laugh. You won’t find it on this planet.
