George Pell’s legal team are appealing his conviction to the High Court although there is no guarantee that they will hear the case.

Pell has been found guilty by a court and this verdict was upheld by two of the three appeal court judges. At this stage then, he is a convicted sex offender who is serving time.

There are, however, some rather unusual aspects to this case as far as I can see. I’m not a legal person and I wasn’t in the court, so this is purely my own personal musings.

Apparently, the case hinged on allegations by two men, who were teenagers at the time, that Pell assaulted them.

One had since passed away and so there was only one living witness. The assault happened after a service when the church was still full of people.

Pell is said to have found the boys in a separate room sneaking a drink of the sacrificial wine. He had a 5 or 6 minute window when no one else was in that room. I didn’t hear that the room was locked and so I guess anyone could have entered at any time.

During that time, he “forced” the boys to perform oral sex and masturbation on him. I have never forced someone to have oral sex with me, but I can’t imagine it would be very easy.

Forcing two teenage boys to do it in an unlocked room with people milling around outside whilst wearing ceremonial robes – in a time frame of 6 minutes – sounds challenging to say the least.

Still, he was convicted, and the conviction was upheld on appeal. Had it been anywhere else but Victoria, I would therefore assume him to be guilty.

Victorian judges, however, have form when it comes to politicised judgements against Christians.

Some of you may remember the case of Daniel Scott and Danny Nalia. They were preachers whose “Catch the Fire” ministry taught of the dangers of Islam to both Muslims and non-Muslims.

Daniel Scott was from Pakistan and had fled persecution as a Christian. He had studied Islam for many years and knew it intimately.

The two Dannys were convicted in Victoria under newly passed anti-discrimination legislation. The Victorian appeal court upheld the conviction.

Daniel Scott managed to appeal to the Australian High Court which found that the Victorian judges had erred on over 100 points of law and that, shockingly, truth was a valid defence.

Whether Pell’s conviction is another case of anti-Christian bias by Victorian judges is yet to be seen. I hope the High Court agrees to hear the case. Then I guess, we will find out.

BTW, the boy/man that died always claimed that he’d never been touched by Pell and that it had never happened!

Can that accuser prove beyond all doubt that Pell molested both boys because if they were intoxicated the one still alive may have got confused in their confusion of being caught out drinking the sacred alcohol . Were there any one else that may have resembled Pell by their clothes worn ? Being small boys they would have had to look up to the face of their assaulter so I’m wondering if they have the right person . I am in no way supporting Pell , I would just like this seen outside of the square just to get the… Read more »

Yep Harry, this may have been a false charge and conviction; an easy way out for Victorian law to get Pell. Much simpler than trying him for his real crimes of hiding and protecting paedoclergy with lies, deception and cruelty to victims. If his high court appeal succeeds, Victoria and its courts will look even more stupid than they already do. Law and justice aren’t compatible.

I just had to phone the office of Gareth Ward, Minister for Famillies, Communities and Disability Services in NSW, about a letter I sent concerning one of the service providers. They sent my letter to the service provider and then responded by parrotting what that “charity” said in response to my points. Clearly, they did not read the attachments which included findings in my favour from NCAT and other bodies as the “charity” gave responses contrary to the findings. I spoke with Sophie, didn’t sound like she could care less. I also told her that if the abortion bill goes… Read more »

What sort of parents, particularly a father, would not have warned their children from a very young age, let alone teenagers, how to contend with dangerous people? Did the father really advise his son to just stand there and allow an aged priest to sexually abuse him and to just stand there and watch while his mate was being abused when he could have been screaming his lungs out, hitting the priest with a chair, calling for help? Victorian parents sure are different to any I know in Qld.

Only 5 Countries Left Without a ROTHSCHILD-Controlled Central Bank

The only countries left in 2019 without a Central Bank owned or controlled by the Rothschild Family are:

1. Cuba
2. North Korea
3. Iran
4. Syria 
5. Venezuela

After the instigated protests and riots in the Arab countries the Rothschild finally paved their way into establishing Central Banks, and getting rid of many leaders, which put them into more power.

Federal income tax in the US . (and in many other countries with a Rothschild-controlled Central Bank) only goes towards paying off the national debt. Outrageous as it may be, there is not a single cent of all the income taxes collected from US citizens that goes towards a single service or benefit the US Government provides. Want proof of this? The Grace Commission released a report in January, 1984, under US President Ronald Reagan, which stated that “100% of what is collected [in income taxes] is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt and by Federal Government contributions… Read more »

Quite true KoH but that doesn’t make Christianity unique, I wouldn’t have written that as a Christian two hundred years ago either. There are many other religions with a similar moral compass to Christianity and they all work equally well provided you do not have despots running them. Your Pope is supposed to represent God on earth, but all Popes are different, just as all religions are different, but I don’t believe God is different according to those different religions, only those who administer those religions are different. Some will go to war against other religions such as the Crusaders… Read more »

Don’t forget Gillard set up the RC into child abuse to “get ” the Catholic church. She EXPLICITY EXEMPTED THE MUSLIMS ( the worst child abusers I am aware of) from the enquiry. If that isn’t a downright crime against Australia I don’t know what is

I am disappointed that this headline article was shut down, indecently fast, prompting the question …why? Many of us who possibly have little time for Cardinal Pell, see a glaring injustice, that implicates the judicial system and a none to subtle ‘railroading’ of a man, by an obscure road to nail him. That he should not be tried on protecting his brothers, who were known pedophiles, was apparently too difficult task to contemplate by the élite brains of our exalted lawyers, barristers and judges. This should be a Royal Commission into the integrity, and political leanings of those who are… Read more »

I am more and more of the opinion that this case was used as a catalyst to ‘get Pell’, not on the charges cited, but as the road to finally nail him, albeit from an obscure route. Guilt or no guilt, what this highlights is the questionable integrity of the Court élite, who we are supposed to regard as beyond question, infallible to error of judgement, deliberate or unintentional. That it went to a Court of Appeal, was upheld, has given rise to impropriety by a wide section of thinking people. If the High Court, supposedly the country’s leading brains’,… Read more »

OT: Without personalizing this by using their names, I read yesterday that a man and his wife initially had a heterosexual marriage, then the man changed to being a ‘woman’ and they continued their marriage as a ‘same sex marriage’. Really? No they did not. Superficial trappings at best. Regardless of clothing, makeup, hairstyles, hormone therapy and any gender reasignment surgery if undertaken, their chromosomes remained the same. One with male chromosomes and the other with female chromosomes. Gender reasignment surgery – male to female – leaves the prostate gland intact which means the surgically created “woman” is still at… Read more »

Can you imagine if a former morgue employee was found with the dead bodies of 2,246 people stashed in his home?

The headlines would be EVERYWHERE.

But when it’s an abortionist with the bodies of 2,246 dead babies stashed in his home, it’s SILENCE from the media.

With some country towns due to run out of water in the very near future a vineyard near Stanthorpe is to begin trucking in water at huge expense to keep the vines alive.

Ballandean Estate Wines is one of the farming enterprises to put up a collective $23m in funds towards the long-proposed irrigation project Emu Swamp Dam.

Farmers are suffering extreme stress and are angry that the Emu Plains Dam has only just got the go-ahead from the state government after 25 years of ­debate.

I read a summation of the dissenting judge’s findings and I could not help but feel that on the balance of probabilities this assault did not occur as described by the victim. That the second victim is now dead and had apparently never made a claim that this had happend makes it appear a very unsound verdict. It borders on the absolute bizarre that a very senior 55 year old church official would be so immediately sexually charged that he would sexually assault two teenage boys in an easily accessable area of a church full of worshipers within easy calling… Read more »
