Peter Saunders called Cardinal Pell a ‘sociopath’ but supported a liar and fantasist

Peter Saunders, forced to resign as head of Britain’s leading charity for survivors of child sexual abuse, was among the first to support liar and fantasist Carl Beech who brought concocted, difficult-to-believe charges against prominent British figures. Beech was convicted for perverting the course of justice and sentenced to 18 years jail. The Beech case has stunning parallels with the Pell case in Victoria. The Pell case has stunning parallels with the Newsweek report: Catholic Guilt? The lying, scheming altar boy behind a lurid rape case. A postscript: Saunders was himself arrested for the abuse of a woman abused as a minor. See below.

Carl Beech and his enablers in Sp!ked begins thus:

Well, it’s over. What should be seen as one of the most significant criminal prosecutions of the decade has finally ended with the conviction of Carl Beech, aka ‘Nick’, on 12 charges of perverting the course of justice and one charge of fraud. He has been found guilty as charged by a jury of his peers and now faces the prospect of what should be a very substantial prison sentence, given the seriousness of his vile offences…

A further word on the hack

Was it mere coincidence that my website suffered a vicious hack directly after I had made a series of critical and mocking comments on twitter about Cardinal George Pell’s failed appeal?

Those who regularly visit my site know that I fully support the Cardinal in his declaration of innocence and am intensely critical of the leftist individuals, organizations and institutions who have been unrelenting in their goal of destroying the cardinal. The Cardinal Pell Affair is political from top to bottom. He is, and has been, a powerful force in defending political and religious conservatives.

Even though the majority judgment in the Appeal sent the Cardinal back to jail, the dissenting judge’s judgement, for all who retain the basic operations of reason, smashed his colleagues’ woeful efforts, causing many to wonder where their worships’ reasoning faculties had gone.

The irrational majority judgment is a powerful basis from which to continue the fight against the destructive Marxist forces in Australia. Make no mistake, the goal of destroying Cardinal Pell, and thus the Catholic Church, is front and centre in the Australian Marxist agenda.

If the hack was as suspected, then the hackers should know I have not finished by a long shot. Stay tuned for my comments and links to commentaries on the Appeal.

A vicious hack closed my website

Four days ago, coincidentally after I had posted a series of critical and mocking tweets about the appalling result of Cardinal Pell’s appeal, my website suddenly turned crimson, warning about the dangers to be met within. Nobody could access it.

However, due to the actions of a very clever son, the corrupted files were found and annihilated. The website is now back online as safe as it could be.

The stunning parallels with the Pell conviction

Carl Beech – the plausibility of liars and the paucity of proof

Matthew Scott, The Guardian UK

‘It was left to a BBC Panorama team and Northumbria police to uncover the evidence that Beech was a cunning liar.’

The Met was right to listen to his allegations. Its mistake was not to investigate themSun 28 Jul 2019 04.07 AEST

Carl Beech’s QC, Collingwood Thompson, was faced with a monumentally difficult task when, just before lunch on Friday, he rose to mitigate for the recently convicted serial child abuse accuser. One point he made was that the Metropolitan police policy that “complainants will be believed has had an influence on this whole case. With another approach, Mr Beech’s allegations would have been dismissed.”

There is no harder task in advocacy than mitigating after a jury has convicted your client of every count on the indictment, and I am reluctant to criticise Mr Thompson, but the argument that the police should not have been so stupid as to take Beech seriously was probably best left to others.

Nevertheless, it was entirely correct. Beech would never have achieved such notoriety and caused such damage had many others, who should have known better, not believed him, or at least pretended to do so.

The absurdity of the case against Cardinal Pell

There have been many articles and videos demonstrating the absurdity (and injustice) of Cardinal Pell’s conviction, but none encapsulates that absurdity more succinctly than that by veteran journalist John Sylvester in Melbourne’s Age.

‘Pell was found guilty beyond reasonable doubt on the uncorroborated evidence of one witness, without forensic evidence, a pattern of behaviour or a confession.

‘It is a matter of public record that it is rare to run a case on the word of one witness, let alone gain a conviction.’

The facts about homosexuality and Catholic priests

Fr D. Paul Sullins of The Ruth Institute, The Catholic University of America, reported the findings of his research into the issue of homosexuality and Catholic priests in America.

IS CATHOLIC CLERGY SEX ABUSE RELATED TO HOMOSEXUAL PRIESTS?

Executive Summary

This report compares previously unexamined measures of the share of homosexual Catholic priests and the incidence and victim gender of minor sex abuse by Catholic priests from 1950 to 2001 to see if the these matters are related. New data from the 2018 Pennsylvania grand jury report are also examined.

Key points:

  1. Clergy sexual abuse is still a problem. Since peaking 35 years ago, it has declined much less than commonly thought. The decline is consistent with an overall drop in sexual assault in American society.
  2. Since 2002 abuse has been rising amid signs of complacency by Church leaders, and today is comparable to the early 1970s.
  3. The share of homosexual men in the priesthood rose from twice that of the general population in the 1950s to eight times the general population in the 1980s. This trend was strongly correlated with increasing child sex abuse.
  4. A quarter of priests ordained in the late 1960s report the existence of a homosexual subculture in their seminary, rising to over half of priests ordained in the 1980s. This trend was also strongly correlated with increasing child sex abuse.
  5. Four out of five victims over age 7 were boys; only one in five were girls. Ease of access to boys relative to girls accounts for about one fifth of this disparity. The number of homosexual priests accounts for the remaining four fifths.
  6. Estimates from these findings predict that, had the proportion of homosexual priests remained at the 1950s level, at least 12,000 fewer children, mostly boys, would have suffered abuse.

The goals of the PC class

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.

This is where Australian justice is

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.

The Pell Papers – The Unravelling of Louise Milligan

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.

REVIEW Tony Abbott book

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.’
