Highest official ever convicted

made more interesting by the total news blackout in Australia for the case as well as an interesting history. In 2016 Pell was asked to come back to Australia to meet with investigators about another Sr Australian priest and the Vatican refused, claiming he was "too sick to travel" so Australian comic genius Tim Minchin wrote this song to raise money to send victims to Rome to sit in the Vatican and stare him down face to face as he was questioned over video.



in the end it worked, he was shamed into going back to Australia and will now likely die in prison

good

It has been alleged that Pope Benedict(Joe "Rats" Ratzinger) was allowed to retire under the protection of the Vatican due to his involvement in covering up for priests.
