. . . it tolls for thee. Very surprised that no-one posted this "shocker". Not saying the guy is guilty as charged, but the stress and the embarrassment couldn't happen to a more self-righteous, willfully blind, unempathetic, enabling a-hole. Risdale, ugh, I shudder. My guess is that Pell will walk - if he ever leaves the Vatican and shows one hair on his ass in Oz, that is. He's retained top-notch representation, and he'll certainly get due process which he thoroughly deserves, but let's see how fast he winds up "in hospital" and is still "too ill" to travel. He could be totally innocent, sure, I can roll with that; but please allow me my petty haha you POS moment. The grease trap is just too filthy to clean. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/29/world/europe/cardinal-pell-charges-australia.html Some of the Aussie papers when this first came out, the comments, Holy Smokes. Caustic by and large, and some just flat out funny. Let's just say that he's not particularly revered. "Too sick to fly? Put him on a fully equipped state of the art hospital plane." "GOOD!" "Can't fly, my diddling finger is broken." "I have herpes of the soul, must cancel." lol This is big. Really big. I mean, you don't bring charges if you don't have a leg to stand on. Gotta love the Aussies for pulling an Aussie and going to Rome to question him last year after him citing he couldn't return to answer charges re: medical reasons. So, we'll come to you, mate (high fiving Australia infinity). Now that he's been granted "leave" to vociferously fight these false accusations, stick Pell on a luxury yacht and ship him out to Australia, Francis. At least try to save face for shielding him. It is so difficult for me to believe that someone who entrusted someone with Vatican City's MONEY (and bottomless coffers) could be THAT naive. There's no extradition treaty, so Pell can essentially milk this forever. Stay tuned. Also got a bang (no pun intended) out of some big wig's Vatican apt. getting raiding for wild gay sex orgies. Probably descendants of Caravaggio. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/wor...gay-orgy-cardinal-apartment-article-1.3302974 HAHAHAHA.
