    George Cardinal Pell is dead. As a man, Cardinal Pell stood accused of grievous sins before several earthly tribunals. He was convicted of some of those crimes in secular courts and as a result, spent over a year in prison—much of it in solitary confinement. He was later acquitted and released when the High Court of Australia unanimously overturned his convictions saying that the jury likely made its decision based on faulty evidence, and that there was a significant possibility that an innocent person had been convicted. Was Cardinal Pell guilty of the crimes he was accused of? Or was...
  • George Cardinal Pell's Benign and Rational God and Professor Arthur Clampett Fox's Love as the Key

    I am very proud of my grandfather, Arthur Clampett Fox, the foundation Professor of Philosophy at the University of Western Australia. He was one of the first people in Australia to speak up about Hitler's treatment of the Jews. When he was old he liked hearing me read Shakespeare out aloud to him. In his unpublished manuscript "Man, Society and God" he saw personal freedom as the path to God and social peace and justice. In that work, he wrote "Love is the key that unlocks every final door." It gives me great pleasure to combine my "Puppa's" words with...

    Rome Newsroom, Feb 3, 2021 / 05:00 am MT (CNA).- The Australian Federal Police said on Wednesday that it had found no evidence of criminal misconduct in its investigation into money transfers from the Vatican to Australia. Australian authorities have been investigating the suspicious payments, equivalent to about $7.4 million, for several months. The federal police (AFP) said in a statement on Feb. 3 that “no criminal misconduct has been identified to date.” “If the AFP receives additional information from Australian or international partners it will be reviewed accordingly,” it said. Local media reported last month that investigators had been...

    If I am not mistaken, the two great Catholics in Australian history, in terms of seniority as Catholics, are Cardinal George Pell and St Mary of The Cross. I don’t think what was done to Pell was as bad as what the English and their fellow travelling freedom haters did to Joan of Arc., but there are interesting parallels. If you know the story of Ned Kelly, you will know how Victoria Police have always had an English anti freedom streak deep within them. The police force of the Socialist Left Government of Premier Daniel Andrews elevated the corrupting PC...

    In 2018 Cardinal George Pell was found guilty in the State of Victoria of raping two choir boys just after leading a mass in a busy cathedral. One of the boys denied being raped but the Cardinal was found guilty. Witnesses said the Cardinal was at the front of the church when the alleged rape was supposed to have taken place but the Cardinal was found guilty. He was imprisoned mostly in solitary confinement for 404 days in his late 70’s. Two days ago (Australian time) the seven Justices of the High Court Of Australia unanimously overturned the conviction. The...

    Cardinal George Pell is to be released from prison after he won his appeal, and Australia’s highest court on Tuesday overturned his convictions for child sexual abuse. A full bench of seven judges ruled that Pell’s conviction for child sex abuse should be overturned and he should walk free immediately. They unanimously determined that the jury should have had reasonable doubts as to Pell’s guilt and that the jury had not properly considered all the evidence at his trial. Pell, 78, became the highest-ranking Catholic clergyman worldwide to be imprisoned for child sex offenses after he was arrested in 2018...

    Pell was reportedly reprimanded for “interfering in sovereign business” by looking into the Vatican Secretariat of State’s dealings with a Swiss bank with a long track record of violating fraud safeguards.The Holy See’s relationship with a disreputable Swiss bank triggered an internal dispute between the Secretariat of State and Vatican financial authorities. At the center of the conflict was a multimillion-dollar line of credit used to fund a controversial investment in London property speculation. Sources inside the Vatican’s Prefecture for the Economy confirmed to CNA that a substantial part of the $200 million used to finance the Secretariat of State’s...

    It is 9am Australian Eastern Standard Time on the 21st August 2019. In approximately 30 minutes, the Victorian Court of Appeal will hand down its verdict in the appeal of Catholic Cardinal George Pell against his conviction for historical child sexual abuse. There has been considerable discussion on this on FR and elsewhere as a significant number of people believe there has been a miscarriage of justice in this case for various reasons. I will be monitoring various Australian media as the verdict is delivered and thought I would post here to keep people informed and updated.

    CANBERRA, Australia — Some of Australia’s highest-profile journalists face possible prison sentences and large media organizations could be fined after being ordered to appear in court next month for allegedly breaching a gag order on reporting about Cardinal George Pell’s convictions on charges of sexually molesting two choirboys. Reporting in any format accessible from Australia about the former Vatican economy chief’s convictions in a Melbourne court in December was banned by a judge’s suppression order that was only lifted in February. Such suppression orders are common in the Australian and British judicial systems, and breaches can result in jail terms....

    Andrew Bolt believes Cardinal George Pell is an innocent man who has been wrongly convicted. Speaking on his Sky News show last night, the News Corp columnist said he had “serious misgivings” about Pell’s guilty verdict. “I just can’t accept it, based on what I consider is the overwhelming evidence of this trial,” he said. “And I base that opinion also on how many times Pell has been accused of crimes and sins he clearly did not do. “Pell could well be an innocent man who is being made to pay for the sins of his church and made to...

    Cardinal George Pell has been found guilty of sexual offences in Australia, making him the highest-ranking Catholic figure to receive such a conviction. The verdict was handed down in December, but it could not reported until now due to legal reasons. Pell is due to be sentenced on Wednesday. His lawyers say he will appeal against the conviction. As Vatican treasurer, the 77-year-old cardinal is one of the Church's most powerful officials. His trial was heard twice last year because a first jury failed to reach a verdict. A second jury unanimously convicted him of one charge of sexually penetrating...
