Australia’s top Catholic, Cardinal George Pell, has fronted the Victorian Parliamentary Inquiry into child sex abuse. Pell was questioned for around four and a half hours during which time he said: “I am fully apologetic and absolutely sorry.”

He admitted that members of the church had tried to cover up instances of child sex abuse in the church by other members of the clergy.

  1. I hope this is a breakthrough and not just an apology in the face of evidence that demands it. Either way, the light is shining on it and that’s a good thing. Thanks for posting.

  2. Seriously one of the most heinous of acts by man in the name of God. How do they live with themselves?
