Senior catholic to be charged with serious sexual assault charges.
Cardinal George Pell, Australia's highest ranking Catholic will face at least three serious sex assault charges, including at least one count of rape.

Cardinal Pell is the third most senior Catholic at the Vatican, where he is responsible for the church's finances.

He has a well-known debate on You-Tube with Richard Dawkins.
I wonder if these acts were on a sheep station ? Angel

Not that I'm familiar with, though I don't keep up with my Aussie news (to my great shame).

Pell did a debate with Dawkins a few years ago on an Australian discussion program. It's worth a look if you can spend about an hour:

Ugh. Rape is always heinous, but especially so when it's done by someone in a position of trust and authority.

Kind of, he avoided giving evidence at the Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse by flying to the vatican and claiming health issues for not being able to return to Australia... Eventually ended up giving evidence via video link. That's where the Tim Minchin song was born from.

I just logged into the forum to report this myself; here is the ABC's report: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-06-29/ca...es/8547668

All three of you non-Australians who follow Australian news may know him as "Cardinal 'Come Home, George' Pell", for his refusal to appear before the Australian government's Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse to be questioned about his alleged roll in the coverups of multiple counts of child sex abuse by members of multiple dioceses under his charge during his time as archbishop, and allegations of molestation against himself personally.

To such an end, he famously retreated to the Vatican where he was protected by the Pope and given charge of Vatican laundering financing, and claimed he was 'too ill' to fly back to Australia to face the inquest.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
