Thank God, justice was finally served in Australia for Cardinal George Pell. His outrageous conviction was UNANIMOUSLY quashed by their highest court. The prior verdict is officially changed to acquitted.

He was convicted on completely uncorroborated testimony of a single alleged victim. There was a LOT of evidence and witnesses to his innocence, including to the impossibility it could have happened at all as charged. Why was he convicted? Anti-Catholic bigotry was having its day and apparently in Australia only the highest court could fix it. Thank God for that, but he should never have been convicted in the first place.
