Australian Catholic University staff writing to Chancellor John Fahey. He should sanction Vice-Chancellor Greg Craven for his defence of George Pell. They want Pell's portrait removed and Ballarat Pell Centre renamed.
Unfortunately many so called Catholics who think the church must change and anything should go cuz it's all about you know, hippy love, hate Cardinal Pell, because he refused to go with the down stream flow. God Bless Cardinal Pell and all who defend him!

I would remind Dr Leah Kaufmann that silence in the face of blatant injustice leads to genocide. I'm surprised she does not understand this. Supporting victims entails seeking justice not kangaroo courts packed with a media poisoned juries. Cardinal Pell is in prison because he committed the crime of being a follower of Jesus Christ.

I would remind Dr Leah Kaufmann that silence in the face of blatant injustice leads to genocide. I'm surprised she does not understand this. Supporting victims entails seeking justice not kangaroo courts packed with a media poisoned juries. Cardinal Pell is in prison because he committed the crime of being a follower of Jesus Christ. How can an institution like ACU talk about protecting victims if it cannot recognise injustice and speak out against it when it is staring in their face. I would remind Kaufmann of the words of Albert Einstein concerning Nazi Germany
"Being a lover of freedom, when the revolution came in Germany, I looked to the universities to defend it, knowing that they had always boasted of their devotion to the cause of truth; but, no, the universities immediately were silenced. Then I looked to the great editors of the newspapers whose flaming editorials in days gone by had proclaimed their love of freedom; but they, like the universities, were silenced in a few short weeks…
Only the Church stood squarely across the path of Hitler’s campaign for suppressing truth. I never had any special interest in the Church before, but now I feel a great affection and admiration because the Church alone has had the courage and persistence to stand for intellectual truth and moral freedom. I am forced thus to confess that what I once despised I now praise unreservedly."– Albert Einstein, Time magazine, 23rd December, 1940 p. 38

...so speaking your mind about this clearly ridiculous conviction is somehow wrong, but expressing a desire to remove all remembrance of Pell from the university a week after the conviction is just? This is out of concern for Catholics, to "rebuild trust in the church"!? It is insulting to victims of sexual abuse to suggest defending Pell against these charges is insensitive to victims.

...so speaking your mind about this clearly ridiculous conviction is somehow wrong, but expressing a desire to remove all remembrance of Pell from the university a week after the conviction is just? This is out of concern for Catholics, to "rebuild trust in the church"!? It is insulting to victims of sexual abuse to suggest defending Pell against these charges is insensitive to victims. We have truly exalted societies that embrace a god of victimhood, sentencing the victims themselves to an endless prison.

Anyone with half a brain knows that Pell is innocent. But don't expect any brain at a Catholic University.

Remember Fr. Gordon McRae; he is languishing in an US prison although widely believed to be innocent - even among journalistic and judicial experts.

When will the anti-Catholic witch hunt come to you and your children?
