Hes guilty, if not for his own sins, then for all the other sins they covered up.
Company Directors and senior management can be legally held to account for serious criminal activities they willingly cover up for their company(VW emmisions for example), but not churches.
Also the blind allegiance church followers have. They know nothing personally of the man, yet he must be innocent, otherwise they would have to admit the whole structure they have blindly followed for their entire life is corrupt and self interested.
Im not saying there is or isnt a creator, but religious institutions are just like politics. They may have started out seeking truth or wanting to serve, but over time the wealth and power corrupts them and they end up nothing like their original form or purpose.
If your telling me god is a (insert major religion here) then your a fool.
I can't see god sitting there cheering on his "side" in a war,  inflicting unimaginable horrors on another side, all the while the fat cat religous leaders sitting back in luxury, hypocritically preaching love, forgiveness and oh yeah, whats that main one, Thou Shall Not Kill, let alone covert, lie, steal or make idols.
If there is a god he's certainly not willing to have any of those mobs speak for him.

Cheers Glen

i think you'll find that most mainline christians (or any of the major faiths) would find this behaviour abhorrent and if the cardinal is guilty, then that is that.  as long as the course of justice is fair, then we trust that the verdict is also fair.

as it is with many organisations in the world, the rabid minorities can give everyone else a bad name.

because i profess to be a christian, the automatic reaction of many is that i believe that Pell was innocent.  i don't believe that at all.  i trust that the legal system does its job and finds the correct verdict, within the law.

Nah, he just gets to hang out with all of his old mates for the next few years....

“Cardinal George Pell is likely to serve his prison sentence in the specialised “protection” prison for sex offenders in the Victorian town of Ararat, which already houses a number of fellow members of the cloth also convicted of paedophilia, including his old housemate Gerald Ridsdale.”

The most threatening thing he’ll have to put up with will be seeing all of the other filthy old men hanging out in their speedos by the pool...

“A swimming pool, a basketball court, medical services for the aged: this is the remote 'protection' prison where Pell will likely serve out his sentence.”

certainly does.

and i do. 

does that make me a bad, stupid or gullible person?  i guess it does to people like you, which is sad.

i don't go around trying to 'convert' anyone on this forum (or tell them that they are going to hell, if they don't repent, like others), i just try to give a normal christian's point of view.

if that's unwelcome, then i'll be on my way.

I know we've all said it before, but Jeez, it would have been nice if my Mum's nursing home had had facilities like that :'(

& from the article

"Pell will now undergo an intensive review by Correction Victoria’s Sentence Management Unit, which will include an interview where he will be able to express a preference for where he serves his six year sentence"
