Cardinal Pell guilty of sexual offences

quote [ Cardinal George Pell becomes the most senior Catholic figure to be convicted of sexual offences.Pell abused two choir boys in the rooms of a Melbourne cathedral in 1996, a jury found. He had pleaded not guilty.

As Vatican treasurer, the 77-year-old cardinal is one of the Church's most powerful officials. ]

If this was a new religion, it would called a sex cult instead of the catholic church.

whether 'Love thy neighbour' is being honoured

quote [ The bible has 365 references to ?don?t be afraid?. The good samaritan is based on fearing strangers, your neighbor. Strangers like Jews -money changers, or Muslims.
The crusades were about Christians intolerance to Muslims.
The Roman Catholic Church is modeled after the structures of the Roman Empire. An institution fostering lies and cover-up of child molesters.
