In Melbourne alone, 29 Catholic Priests are acknowledged as guilty of sexually abusing children. But the Archbishop of Melbourne told Victoria’s child abuse inquiry the church had paid compensation to victims of 59 priests who had worked in the archdiocese.
The church did not release 30 names because some were dead at the time the allegations were made, and some were not charged after police investigations.
How many other priests in Australia were guilty of sex abuse, and have not been subject to prosecution?
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:4, 5
