Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association claimed in an circularized email that those currently calling themselves ‘progressive’ were actually regressive. They were regressive because they wanted to:
- Maintain the right to kill unborn babies up until the moment of birth.
- Embrace any sexual perversion and have society affirm it.
- Dismantle capitalism and replace it with socialism or communism.
- Abolish the family.
- Centralize and expand state power and control.
- Censor the speech of anyone who dares disagree with them.
- Expunge any vestige of Christianity in America.
That pretty well applies to Australia. Indeed, the conquest of language is a necessary leftist goal.
Fr Raymond J. d Sousa has demonstrated how corrupt Australian justice has become. Nobody is safe anymore.
Anomalies Abound in Cardinal Pell’s Abuse Trials
COMMENTARY: According to prosecutors, the very implausibility of the cardinal’s alleged crimes is an indication of their truth.
Does the very improbability of an accusation mean that it is more likely to be true?
That is the argument advanced by prosecutors in the case of Cardinal George Pell, and it indicates a dangerous dynamic in trials for some cases of historic sexual abuse. Convincing evidence leads to a guilty verdict; unconvincing evidence also leads to a guilty verdict.
Cardinal George Pell’s appeal of his convictions for sexual abuse was heard last week in Melbourne, and the proceedings illustrated how sex-abuse trials are different from other sorts of criminal trials. Those anomalies had a role in the false convictions of Cardinal Pell, which I have outlined previously in these pages.
The point here is not that there are wrongful convictions. The world learned that about Australian justice decades ago in the “dingo” case, dramatized by Hollywood, where parents were falsely convicted of killing their own child. Those false convictions resulted in part from public frenzy, a frenzy in which the religious beliefs of the family — Seventh Day Adventists — played a role.
Chris Friel is an academic on the other side of the world – in Cardiff, Wales. He has undertaken a forensic analysis of Louise Milligan’s biased and bigoted book, CARDINAL: THE RISE AND FALL OF GEORGE PELL.
In a series of articles about CARDINAL and the GET PELL! campaign, he has started the unravelling of the nasty incoherent case against Cardinal Pell.
We supporters of Cardinal Pell cannot be too grateful to Chris Friel for his efforts. See his website for his 20 articles. Start with THE PELL PAPERS, the sixth article. This article provides a summary of each of the articles.
Two more essays from Duncan McLaren’s Evelyn Waugh website. The information about Waugh’s and Graham’s relationship I have not read anywhere summarised in this way. As fascinating as ever. What a sad end for Alastair Graham.

Just repeating that I have received a review for TONY ABBOTT AND THE TIMES OF REVOLUTION:
‘IF YOU WONDER how we got to where we are on the shifting sands of political correctness (and who doesn’t) this book is for you. Gerard Charles Wilson, author of Prison Hulk to Redemption (2015) is the kind of biographer who is a more interesting than his hero Tony Abbott (see James Boswell, Laird of Auchinleck and Sam Johnson, Doctor of Bolt Court, off Fleet Street)…
‘Wilson’s work may not necessarily commend itself to left-wing Honi Soitistes, but it should be on the library shelves of all Catholic universities and senior schools for its corrective attitude to the student politics of the last century and this one.’
