Oh dear, Cardinal Pell is too ill to travel to Aus' for the Royal Commission
But here is a great letter in today's Herald

Offer of help
Dear Cardinal Pell ("Pell too ill to fly in for inquiry: doctor", February 6-7), I am sorry to hear you are too unwell to be able to fly back to Australia to testify to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. I hope you get well soon.
However, on a practical note, I am a doctor with experience in transporting critically ill patients on long-haul commercial flights. To ensure your critical testimony to the Royal Commission isn't misconstrued and the Catholic Church unfairly vilified as result of any inaccuracies that might result from video testimony, I would happily travel to Rome to escort you safely back to Australia. I am certain a team of other doctors could be quickly organised to ensure your travel safety. Furthermore, as I understand you only travel first class, I'll happily pay for your tickets. Please let me know.
Dr Richard Sallie Nedlands (WA)

I'm guessing Pell is afraid of coming back to Australia to testify at the Commission because one of its likely outcomes could be that he's nailed for knowingly protecting the perpetrator(s) of a crime, which would make him complicit in that crime. Australia doesn't have an extradition treaty with the Vatican, so whatever happens, Pell reckons he's safe there. And the obvious question arises; why was the Vatican in such a hurry to get Pell out of Australia? They couldn't just sack the bloke—but they had to effectively terminate any further conversation between Pell and the Commission.

From Broken Rights Australia :

This Broken Rites article is the most comprehensive account available about how the Catholic Church harboured this child-abuse criminal—Father Gerald Francis Ridsdale—for 30 years in western Victoria while his superiors and fellow-priests remained silent to protect the church's public image.

In 1982, when Father Ridsdale had been abusing children for 20 years, a clergy committee—of which Father George Pell was a member—noted that Ridsdale was being transferred away from Victoria. Thus, he was inflicted on potential victims in New South Wales.

Eventually, in 1993, Victoria Police detectives charged Ridsdale in court. He was accompanied to court by his support person, George Pell, who had become an assistant bishop in Melbourne. However, no bishop accompanied the victims.

Since Pell is too ill to travel a fundraiser has been set up to fly victims to meet him.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
