Shame on you!
No, really, really shame on you.
Some of you on the left have politics have been quick to make fun of Cardinal Pell’s heart condition.
I mean, one person was even as nasty as to suggest that while Cardinal Pell was quick to suggest that we should ignore climate change until we had more evidence, he was mighty quick to embrace his doctor’s suggestion that he should fly. No need for a second opinion there. No, happy to accept the “experts” on that occasion.
However, it must be pointed out that George’s heart condition is so severe that he can’t even stop his job, because the stress of doing nothing might kill him. So, even though a long haul flight is dangerous, continuing to work is just fine.
And let’s not forget how often that the witnesses in the Royal Commission have suggested that Cardinal Pell was in one place when the Church tells us that he was in another. It’s happened with such regularity that you have to wonder about the memory of the witnesses, because, well, the Church would never mislead and if they say they have evidence that he was somewhere else, then clearly he was because if you can’t trust an institution like that, then who can you trust? It’s not like they’ve ever tried to cover anything up!
Yep, it’s almost like the left want to kill him. I’ve even heard some suggest that he didn’t condemn the IRA when he they bombed London so that he should have his citizenship stripped. But we don’t do that sort of thing in Australia unless the people don’t embrace our values.
And George has embraced our values 100%.
So let’s all send Cardinal Pell a “get-well-soon” card and tell him that any day now Mr Abbott will be restored to the PrimeMinistershipthingy so he can come back and feel that there’s no way that his heart will be ripped out on one of those long haul flights.
Yes, yes, I know. May God forgive me, because I know not what I do.
And God seems to have done a lot of that with governments lately.
