Where's that story about the swimming pool? I did a google and (in the link) it seems that his lawyers could rebut it.It's the Vatican even the pope who probably knew one way or another re Pell and other serial sex abusers.They are corrupted and devious knowing that they protected the church or man made church at the expense of poor suffering kids.
Their weasel and mealy mouth words even with cheap words of apologies even Francis himself won't wash. At the heart of the whole sordid affair is money and lust for power. Recall Fr Bertone ( i don't call him cardinal as he doesnt deserve one) with a spanking apartment which was renovated with no expense to spare. Misuse of funds could arise there.
Ex JPII couldnt expel Marciel cos he needed the money. Pope Francis needed Carrick for money that is because he couldn't strip Carrick re red hat. Francis had known it all along before it blew up per Vigano. To the Vatican,popes,cardinals, it's all about money and lust for power.
Gay parties at Cardinal apartment in the Vatican, calvi murder, death of JPI etc as i could go on-It only demonstrated that the Vatican along with Cardinals,high ranking priests who supported Francis and previous popes was/is totally morally and ethically corrupted. It's more than the corruption as they dared it with impunity and two fingers to the public especially catholics.
Don't believe that Pell was set up as it's sickening to see the story on swimming pool and Pell. No surprises there as it happened before in my time. Remembered seeing one article that Pell was power hungry and his goal was the pope as i can't rem where the article is.
Hope that states in USA start RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO) on US bishops and the Vatican as well. Hope that is a start or first step.
also something about a cinema incident which was also rebutted.
Very uncomfortable situation.. like walking on the ridge of a sloped roof. If he's found innocent (but if the opposite is the case) enormous pain and frustration is caused to the victims. Likewise something similar if he's found guilty (but the opposite is the case.
There should be some explanation as to when and why the witnesses/ accusers decided to come foreward so late in the day. Is it because Pell had a strategy of delaying and denying or what?
