Looks like a criminal organisation to me, targeting and taking what they want from the weakest while working under the umbrella and protection of the wealthiest, most powerful institution in the world. Why we still give these organisations status, influence and tax free dollars worth a lot of money is beyond me.

Quite a lengthy and thorough article in link below detailing victims account, lawsuits pending.


Some of the Catholic church’s worst paedophile priests shared victims, passed on details of vulnerable children considered easy targets and worked together to conceal their crimes as part of informal networks of sexual abuse hidden in Australian seminaries, schools and parishes.

An investigation by The Age has identified for the first time that many priests involved in historical sexual abuse of children did not simply act as individuals but formed clusters, or paedophile rings, throughout Victoria, from the western district to the Gippsland region and in suburban Melbourne.

At the centre of a number of these networks was Melbourne’s seminary - Corpus Christi - which has produced about 1000 priests over almost 100 years, including jailed Cardinal George Pell and convicted child rapist Gerald Ridsdale. According to a conservative snapshot from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse, at least 75 convicted and alleged sex offenders emerged from Corpus Christi. The true figure is not known.

It was a club.

More evidence has come to light that paedophile priests working in the Melbourne and Ballarat Catholic dioceses operated in an organised network that included a suburban 'safe house'.

One of Ridsdale's victims has been awarded over $1 million it's estimated. There's George Pell's scheme and what he surely thought would be his legacy to a grateful Vatican to quietly pay victims off with a trifling amount and a gag order shot to pieces.
