The news about George Pell hit home, as I thought of my uncle, a victim of the church, one who didn’t survive to see judgement served.
While he may be guilty in the eyes of the public and the court of law, the Catholic Church is dithering on their action over George Pell.
The civil suit raised against George Pell is not an outlier, as the victims of the Catholic Church are now free to sue for damages.
According to numerous reports, yet another Australian Catholic priest has been arrested for child sex offences dating back to the 1980s.
So there we have it. George Pell will indeed spend a chunk of his remaining life in prison. But to those who feel it should have been longer, or that justice was not done, I suggest that we focus on what is truly important.
