Cardinal George Pell, Convicted Pellodphile
A 77 year old man, George Pell an Australian Prelate of the Roman Catholic Church is now a convicted sex offender. An Australian Criminal Court on Tuesday later afternoon has convicted one of the most powerful and highest Vatican official on sexual-rape charges. Cardinal George Pell has been found GUILTY of the rape of two teen boys, after nearly four full days of deliberations, a jury of 12 members rendered unanimous guilty verdicts on all five charges related to the abuse of two choirboys in 1996. Cardinal George Pell’s conviction stemmed from the rape of two teen choir boys in 1996. Only one of the alleged victims was present in court to give evidence against Pell. The other alleged victim, according to a 2017 report from The Australian newspaper The Age, died of a drug overdose in 2014.
When asked how the 12 members of the jury could have delivered a unanimous conviction despite the seeming weight of evidence in Pell’s favour, several trial attendees noted that Cardinal Pell refused to give evidence in his own defence. “Pell didn’t take the stand, and that definitely made a negative impression; it doesn’t look good if you won’t deny it with your own lips.”
This past May, after a four-week committal hearing, an Australian magistrate struck down some of the more serious charges against Pell but ruled he must stand trial on five charges related to sexual abuse of minors. The allegations, however, are from two separate periods, the 1970s and the 1990s, hence Judge Sue Pullen’s decision in May to mandate two different trials.
His case in Criminal High Court in Melbourne, Australia has unfolded in great secrecy because of a court-issued gag order set in place. This criminal conviction provides one of the clearest examples of how the sexual rape scandal has totally eroded the Roman Catholic Church’s credibility while ensnaring senior members in the upper highest echelons of power. Cardinal George Pell is considered the Holy See’s third- most-powerful person, as the Economy Minister in the Vatican. Sadly one of the most important stories in the world has not broken yet, but when it does it will be huge globally. No Irish or English news outlet has covered the story. This will have the power of ripping the filth of the Roman Catholic Church apart. More telling, the Vatican itself has stayed tightlipped on his explosive case, there is a smell of fear emitting from St. Peter's Basilica.
Pope Francis had quietly removed Cardinal Pell from his advisory group known as the Council of Cardinals, along with a Chilean Cardinal, Francisco Javier Errázuriz Ossa, who is accused of covering up for rapist Priests. Another Cardinal from Africa, Congolese Cardinal Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya, was also removed from the Council of Cardinals, but nobody knows why. Pope Francis in dismissing Cardinal Pell and thanked him for his Church services, I assume that also includes his services in the raping of children.
The Australian Court said that Cardinal Pell’s will be sentenced in the New Year, but they will also be bring additional criminal charges very soon. Sadly there is a total news blackout in effect in Australia issued by the trail judge, they wanted a fair trail as best as possible. The judge in the County Court of Victoria had placed the gag order as a way “to prevent a real and substantial risk of prejudice to the proper administration of justice.” Also please remember that Cardinal George Pell is Australia’s most important Catholic Church figure and Australian’s most respected Catholic leader. George Pell was the son of a gold miner who rose to become the Archbishop of both Melbourne and Sydney in Australia.
Cardinal George Pell was meant to help Pope Francis reform the Vatican bureaucracy, that would take some doing. The best way to reform the excrement of the Roman Catholic Church is to totally dismantle the defilement completely. The Australian Justice Department of the Government announced last year that Cardinal Pell must face and answer “ Sexual and Historical Rape Charges”
Cardinal Pell said the accusations were false and made up by the devil, he continued-“The whole idea of sexual rape is abhorrent to me,” Cardinal Pell said. Well the jury of his fellow peers reached a unanimous decision and didn’t believe the Cardinal, the evidence of one of the young boys now brave man stood out as did his suffering and pain. But I say that “Not only must Justice be done; it must also be seen to be done.” and a frightened Vatican spokesman said, that the Holy See “has the utmost respect for Australian judicial authorities.” The secrecy surrounding Cardinal Pell’s case reminds me of the Irish Catholic Church’s own approach in dealing with alleged Clerical rapists and pedophiles, always behind closed doors.
This conviction of the one of the highest members of the Roman Catholic Church and a Cardinal to boot, is just the latest in a series of major rape-related developments that have amounted to the greatest challenge of Pope Francis’s Papacy. The fight will go on, in countries around the world, and in more than a dozen States across the United States, and here in Ireland, outside authorities are pursuing crimes within the Catholic Church with unprecedented vigour. The apple never falls far from the tree, Pope Francis himself has been accused by a former Vatican Ambassador of knowing about rapes of children and unwilling to act or respond to the allegations. Than we have the sexual rape of dozens of prepubescent children by another Cardinal, Theodore McCormick, an American prelate of the Catholic Church. He served as Archbishop of Washington and was accused and admitted the rape of his own nephew and other children and students Priest for 40 years.
More insulting is The Vatican is preparing for a landmark Meeting of Pedophiles in the coming New Year to bring hundreds of Bishops- Peodphiles to Rome from across the world to discuss sexual rape and the protection of children, you couldn’t invent this. Please don't let the fox guard the chicken coop and don't set a wolf to watch the sheep. It's really a case of the proverbial fox guarding the chickens. It’s outrageous, The Roman Catholic Church will exploit the meeting for its own ends, the Pope as the Head Shepherd will say, “Thy father guards the sheep’." But in case any Clerics manage to read my Post I will say it in Latin- 'Ovem lupo commitere’. Owen Felix O’Neill
