Lulu and the dungeon master
THE ‘report’ by Louise Milligan below has deliberately been left online by the ABC. As committed a supporter of Cardinal Pell as I am, his unwillingness to take action against defamers allows untruth to stand beside truth on a ‘you be the judge’ basis. At a time when the ABC’s reputational terrorism is escalating weekly, this leaves everyone else less safe:
His father has told Four Corners how they watched their son change from a cheerful young kid — with no idea why.
“He went from being this lovely boy, who used to come to the football with me, who used to go and help his grandparents and helped around the house, to this boy wanting to go out all the time,” he said.
“His schoolwork, I noticed that it started slipping. His whole attitude changed. His whole being just, he was a different boy.”
Keith Windschuttle reminds his readers of what Milligan accidentally forgot to tell hers:
One of Milligan’s principal sources, who claimed Pell’s alleged abuse of Witness J’s choirboy friend turned the latter into a heroin addict, was the father of that friend. Assuring readers the father was a reliable informant, Milligan described him as “an honorary probation officer”. However, this father was well-known in certain circles in Melbourne for other skills. In the 1990s, while the son was attending the posh St Kevin’s College in Toorak and singing in St Patrick’s Cathedral choir, the father, under the pseudonym of “Master Joe”, was a performer in the city at bondage and discipline sex clubs. He was also registered as proprietor of a sex toy shop in Pascoe Vale, and later had a business in regional Victoria with a woman providing bondage and sadomasochistic services. Rather than sex in the priests’ sacristy being the cause of the boy’s descent into heroin addiction, the most obvious candidate for his desire to blot out his world was his discovery of his father’s sordid occupation.
