********************************************************

 

Everything you know about the guilty verdict of George Cardinal Pell—along with the background and nature of the charges—is wrong. While sexual abuse is an abhorrent crime, and while Catholic bishops do not have a stellar record of reporting and stopping such crimes, this particular case stinks to high heaven.

 

George Weigel, best known as the biographer of Pope St. John Paul II, has known His Eminence for over 50 years. He has also closely examined the facts of the allegations and the context of Australian Church/State politics. There is something very, very smelly here.

 

After this interview, you will know:

 

  • Why is was not just unlikely, but virtually impossible, that Pell could have done what he was alleged to have done two two choir boys in the sacristy of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Melbourne back in 1996
  • The ways in which the whole Australian justice system is also on trial here
  • How the ideological collusion between the Victoria police and the Aussie media machine whipped up public venom against Cardinal Pell
  • The ways in which George Pell serves as an ideal target for militant secularists in Australia
  • Key facts that would have ordinarily exculpated someone so accused
  • Pell’s chances for acquittal in his upcoming (June 2019) appeal
