Cardinal George Pell wanted catholic priests to be insured and protected form being sued for child abuse. Just like lawyers need professional indemnity insurance in case of mistakes, priests need answering-to-crimes insurance in case they get caught abusing children and get sued.
What fucked up logic is this?! A burglar can now take out jail insurance before committing a crime? Clearly he is still very much focused on protecting the church from consequences of its crimes. More disturbingly, this implies he is not at all confident about the chruch’s ability to prevent future abuses from happening.
If your faith was so strong and your god so powerful why would you need insurance anyway?
He is promoted by the Vatican of course. The fish is rotten from the head down.
