    Usually when the Popes get old and geriatric they slip them something so they pop off and a newbie can be installed. Oh how times have changed.

    The knives will be out, the deals beginning as the most powerful begin the fight for the position of CEO of the Vatican and the vast economic empire it controls.

    Or as you say.... nothing.

    In Australia it's known as Vege-smite :D

    I can't find the net worth of Le Pope but I'm sure I read somewhere he doesn't receive a salary and has very little in the way of personal wealth. Surely suing one of the world's biggest organizations instead would have a more successful outcome? He wasn't the only one who knew what was going on.

    Having immunity from legal action for what they have done is an absolute disgrace and this abused privilege should never have been instated :mad:

    He may be a bit busy appearing at a Royal Commission to become Pope just at the minute.

    Not that it would disqualify him from sticking his hand up for the job.

    Mr Pell was a school teacher in Ballarat in the 1970s. He was at the same school that Gerard Ridsdale and Robert Best (two of this Country's worst serial sex offenders) were teaching at whilst commiting acts of indecency upon students.

    Mr Pell has never been directly accused of commiting sex offences and I have never spoken to anyone who alleges he did. However his claims of ignorance regarding the deeds of other priests he worked with are hard to believe.
