19,618 views•Apr 14, 20201.1K111SHARESAVESky News Australia350K subscribersSUBSCRIBECardinal George Pell has revealed he is ashamed of the Catholic Church for the way it dealt with the “cancer” of child sex abuse in the past. In an exclusive world-first televised interview with Sky News Australia presenter Andrew Bolt, Cardinal Pell talks candidly about the scourge of child abuse within his own church and how the many failures to act still haunt him today. “It was like a cancer … we had to cut it out,” he said. “I totally condemn these sorts of activities, and the damage that it’s done to people. “One of the things that aggrieves me is the suggestion that I’m anti-victim, or not sufficiently sympathetic. I devoted a lot of time and energy to try to save them, to get justice, to get help and to get compensation.” Cardinal Pell also shone light on the 405 days he spent locked up for seven child sex offences which were eventually quashed by the High Court of Australia. He befriended several inmates, including a convicted murderer, and witnessed the devastation ice addiction had on those around him. Cardinal Pell explained he felt flat following his release but he felt no “anger or hostility” towards his accuser. He hopes to transition into a quiet life of gardening where he could focus on growing roses and cabbage.SHOW MORE

Thomas Elliott3 hours ago (edited)Cardinal Pell is a prime example of someone who is devoted to his faith and the benefits that bestows. That is a quality that few in modern society can understand. As such he is a great example for us all. It is a real pity that society is headed in the other direction. Andrew Bolt deserves great credit for his continued support for justice in this whole travesty of justice in Victoria and that was pursued rigorously by the ABC. The ABC fought against him and villified him throughout the whole affair. They presented rhetoric to the point where they had mainstream Australia calling for his blood. It really goes beyond belief that it happened. Surely some action should be taken against the ABC’s role as the self appointed purveyors of justice in Australia today.Read more18REPLYView reply

A criminal trial is not conducted as a contest between guilt and innocence (Bartha v. The Queen (49)). It begins with the presumption that the accused is innocent. The presumption is of course rebuttable, but only by proof of guilt beyond reasonable doubt. If the prosecution fails to adduce such proof and the accused isacquitted, the presumption is said to become irrebuttable or conclusive (R v Darby (1982) 148 CLR 668, 682, Murphy J).56REPLYView 17 replies

I am a practicing Catholic but I do not support this heretical Pope. We need a strong leader (not a politician, like Francis), to completely wipe out the pedophilia that scourges our Church and scandalises it’s members and those outside the Church. We need a true Pope who can deal with these REAL issues that effect the Church today and not a Pope who is more interested in global warming!Read more2REPLY

Not for a second have I thought he was directly involved in the heinous activities of the other priests though. Even during the witchhunt; I’d thought he’s clearly being persecuted for the crimes of the church.1REPLY

I have been on many juries and those who have know that it is often hard work producing a verdict based on facts not feelings. Many juries fall into the what if trap, some go on tangents not related to the case, and others have not paid attention in court. It often takes a few clear heads to get everything back on the right track and bring forth an honest verdict, but without these good folk things can easily turn nasty for an innocent defendant or a genuine victim. Pell deserved so much better.Read more5REPLYView 2 replies

Rachmadi Sosiawan3 hours agoI am a Catholic since I was little (not a good one offcourse) but I am pretty comfortable how I am so far. I have heard so many beautiful story about forgiveness but I never seen something so real like this. I still don’t understand what make him do that? He literally has been destroyed to his very core as far as humanly concerned. But he still have a strength to forgive his enemy? After all these has happened to him? Why? What for? Those people clearly said they wanted him dead and rotten in hell. Why he still give them favour by forgive them? The will never forgive him in return or at least be nice to him. So why bother? What’s the point of doing that? He has so many supporters including those 2 ex-prime ministers. He could’ve easily turn around by utilising his powerful contacts around the world to crush his enemies as easy as turning his palm. And he still chooses to give forgiveness? Is he running out of options? I think this is insane and It doesn’t make any sense at all. I know I might clearly lack of faith but honestly I couldn’t do what he does. Maybe he has something or some being with him which empower him that makes those things that happen to him looks like nothing. In the other hand, he must have a great power so he is able to do all of this. If anything I hope one day I could learn a little tiny bit of this to make me a better person.Read more4REPLYView reply

Just one other small point: at the end you said that you did not know if the Cardinal had ever sinned. Well, this is something that I too don’t know for sure, but you can be sure that real Christians like George Pell are conscious of their wrongdoing when it happens.

Langas

Langas3 hours agoAustralia’s most competent and brave Journalist Andrew Bolt, who if he sees justice is required, goes out on a limb for the downtrodden, usually against the lynch-mobs which congregate while spitting venom at those who they knowingly can’t return, even the slightest gesture to protect themselves. Knowing of their failure in protecting seven innocents against Bourke Street murderer Gargoulas, the Melbourne police were desperate to make amends any way possible. With the mainstream media on side, the police were looking for a fall-guy, somebody of note, to quench their thirst for a conviction and Cardinal Pell fitted their scenario perfectly. The Cardinal was the ideal fit for the police to lift their ratings amongst what turned out to be mostly, a pathetic and gullible public. They finally succeeded in gaining a conviction with trumped up charges that should never have got to Court. The police, no doubt, were obviously pleased to have regained some stature, by attempting twenty-six times to falsely charge an innocent man. However after 405 days, their dream has become a night-mare, while those of us belonging to the law abiding public, can thank God for the High Court, in finally handing down true Justice in their releasing of Cardinal George Pell.Read moreREPLY

Everyone must read the Book of Job once, then again, and the third time before you understand what life is about, and that everyone who lives the Ten Commandments to the best of their ability attracts the attention of the adversary, and Job was such a perfect man and the adversary said to God “yes he is so perfect but let me have him and I will give him so much afflictions and suffering he will turn against you”. I prayed for Cardinal Pell that he would be free and I am the same age as Cardinal Pell. God the father has used him to show the corrupt actions of the people who Cardinal Pell said were involved, and now they are exposed, things will change for the better. I have the greatest admiration of him as a Christian and he has tried to do the right thing to help victims cleaning up the bad things that happened in his church. I hope and pray he will be compensated for wrongful imprisonment. I also hope he will be able to have peace for the rest of his life. The more you overcome the stronger you get. Andrew Bolt should be commended for giving Cardinal Pell such a wonderful chance to be able to defend himself, seeing he didn’t get the chance to speak in County Court.Read more2REPLYView reply

jerzy chroscicki

jerzy chroscicki3 hours agoI would recommend to Cardinal George Pell the book “Misunderstood for 2000Years” by Jeremy Rossi. Cardinal Pell is mentioned there about three times, and not in any negative way, but only as a theologian. This book will be, most probably, condemned by Christian churches of all denominations as a heresy, but absolutely unjustly, and ONLY, because they will never admit, that the author has proven in that book, that NUMBER of fundamental things are misunderstood by all Christian churches. Let me give you one example of many, with this quote from Chapter XIV. (It was part of his comment to American atheists’ blasphemy, saying that “God is sadistic”) : — * ” The ‘infallible’ Pope and leaders of all other Christian churches are to blame for this blasphemy, because the atheists will be able to keep saying this so long as they continue to preach this fallacy, that Jesus died for the forgiveness of sins. That God demanded His innocent son to be offered to Him as human sacrifice – the ‘ransom’, for forgiving humans for Adam’s disobedience 5000 years earlier. That God had to be unjust and extremely cruel to His son, to show us how much He loves us. Therefore He wanted His son to be nailed to a cross and watched him suffering in extreme pain for three hours, indifferent to Jesus’ pleas.. The atheists’ blasphemy is the logical conclusion from this preaching of yours, Francis.”. — Rossi also reminds us, that on 9th April 2012 said on TV the ABC’s Q&A TV Show, Cardinal Pell has said that Adam and Eve did not ever exist, as in the Bible, and said, that: “It’s religious story told for religious purposes”. — I can imagine the Pope’s reaction to this, but the Pope did NOT contradict Cardinal Pell, “which is an obvious, although silent, confirmation that he is of the same opinion”. Why the Pope did not contradict Cardinal Pell and ordered him to “correct” his opinion that Adam and Ever never existed? Because the Pope knows, that Cardinal Pell was right, and instead condemning Cardinal Pell, the Pope, as we know, made him his one of his personal advisers. Here is the indisputable proof, that Cardinal Pell is absolutely correct, saying that Adam never existed, and therefore, Jesus did NOT die on the cross to atone for Adam’s disobedience, and him, eating that apple: — * God has never been or could be unjust. God is ALWAYS just, and has never punished an innocent person or rewarded a sinner! * Jesus said to his disciples that our “Father in Heaven is perfect”. — God wouldn’t be “perfect” if He was ever unjust! Contradicting what Jesus said! Killing an innocent person (Jesus) for someone else sin, is the greatest injustice, isn’t it? If Adam’s sin was so unforgivable, then why God did not kill Adam, but instead, He killed innocent Jesus? — Can’t you see clearly, that ALL the Christian Churches do NOT understand something fundamental, regarding Christian faith? And there are number of other very important thing as well. In other words, reading Jeremy Rossi’s “Misunderstood for 2000 Years” is extremely important for everyone. Particularly for theologians!! In my opinion, it is the greatest book on how to understand Christianity, ever written. I’m serious!Read moreREPLY

James Smithurst

James Smithurst2 hours agoTechnically, yes, Pell shouldn’t have been convicted but solely because the evidence was poor and you can’t convict someone if there is reasonable doubt, which there was. Having been married to a Catholic, who happened to grow up in Ballarat while Pell was resident there, I have heard plenty of stories about the conduct of the Catholic school, Sacred Heart, most notably physical and psychological abuse. I have seen many documentaries (not by the ABC) where people have claimed they saw Pell stick his finger up boys’ bums in the public swimming pool while giving them a ‘lift’, presenting himself naked with an erect penis in front of boys in the showers and showering with a boy, making contact with his penis and talking about erections being natural. I’ve also seen old interviews where he lies in front of the camera regarding the ‘Melbourne Response’, protecting the church (see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAZmxkphdwU). So, perhaps, in this case the evidence was poorly presented and wasn’t sufficient for a conviction. I’m not a fan of any police force. But based on events depicted by many people, Pell has protected pedophiles and committed pedophilia acts himself. Or are all these accusers lying? Bolt didn’t do his homework on Pell’s history and other accusations. This is a very poor and biased interview. I hope the new charges stick and Pell goes back to prison.Read moreREPLYView reply

My goodness, he would have had access to so much information and if he is innocent and a TRUE man of God then he must expose the darkness that was bestowed upon him no matter what the cost.

HeapsgoodBeertruck2 hours agoStop referring to Roman Catholics as Christians. Learn what both Christians and Catholics believe and practice before presenting journalism about them. To accuse Christians of being equal to Roman Catholics is as false as to accuse of other impossible crimes. It is ABC level journalism.REPLYView 13 replies
