Cardinal George Pell may have been the victim of a hyper-sensational media machine combined with the social effects of growing anti-Catholicism fueled by the Church’s own scandals.
Cardinal Pell could very well be guilty of the crimes he was convicted of. However, the facts of the case make his conviction seem like a miscarriage of justice perpetrated by a overtly anti-Catholic cultural intersection of the media and the state. Combined with Pell’s history of investigation Vatican corruption, the whole case seems fishy.
