    Australian Cardinal charged w/ multiple sex abuse of minors

    Cardinal George Pell, Australia’s most senior Catholic and the third-ranking official in the Vatican,has been charged with multiple sexual offences by police.

    “Cardinal Pell is facing multiple charges … and there are multiple complainants,” Victoria police’s deputy commissioner Shane Patton said. The charges were “historical sexual assault offences”.

    ...and now this:

    Vatican police raided a drug-fueled gay sex party at a top priest’s apartment near the city, according to an Italian newspaper report.

    The apartment’s occupant, who was not named by police, serves as a secretary to Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, a personal adviser to Pope Francis.

    The apartment belongs to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith — the branch that reviews appeals from clergy found guilty of sexual abuse of minors, according to Italian daily Il Fatto Quotidiano, which first published the explosive report.

    I'm not a practicing Catholic, but if God's representative on Earth wanted to hear my opinion, I'd tell Pope Francis he'd be best served to STFU making comments about Deplorable Donald and concentrate getting his own house in order.
