    Cardinal Pell guilty of child sexual abuse

    Cardinal George Pell has been found guilty in Australia of sexual offences against children, making him the highest-ranking Catholic figure to receive such a conviction.

    Pell abused two choir boys in Melbourne's cathedral in 1996, a jury found. He had pleaded not guilty.

    As Vatican treasurer, the 77-year-old Australian was widely seen as the Church's third most powerful official.

    Pell, due to face sentencing hearings from Wednesday, has lodged an appeal.


    The third ranking Catholic, the Popes finance chief, guilty of fucking chldren in the cathedral.

    When the abuse goes to the top it makes it easier to understand why little has been done on this issue. Pell was criticised for his reaction to abuse scandals and now it all makes sense.

    Any guy who says he's willing to give up sex shouldn't be trusted

    You can't trust any married man?

    That seems kind of harsh.

    Guilty or not knows no one. A jury decided 2:1 that he had to go in prison. And to protect him the Australians decided to torture him with solitary confinement.

    The reason why he is in prison is it that he is not trustworthy in the eyes of the Australian judges - but the man, who accused him, is trustworthy in their eyes. Why they see it in this way, this I don't know. In case of one person's word against another person's word it's normally impossible to find out who's right or wrong after 25 years, because every memorizing changes the memory too. Human beings don't remember like books or machines - we bring our memories always in a senseful psychological balance, which let us survive or correspond with our personal logic of consistency. This process is unconscious. So when the judges say this only witness gives the feeling he says the truth, then this what he says is able not to be true too. This what he remembers, is not necessessarily this what really had happened. It is this what his psychological structure made in about 25 years out of something what had happened (or not) - or what was suggerated in him in a later time from others.

    Whatever. Solitary confinement is torture. The Australian penal system has to stop this torture.

    A nice racist statement against all Catholics and Buddhists.

    There was more than one victim and I believe that an appeal court has just upheld the original verdict.
