Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on what happened at the recent judicial hearings of Cardinal George Pell:
One week from today, Australian Magistrate Belinda Wallington will decide whether the case against Cardinal George Pell merits a jury trial. She is already on record noting the inconsistencies in the testimony of his accusers, about which the prosecutor readily admits to as well. But both have indicated that any discrepancies could be sorted out in a trial, which suggests that the process will go forward.

The following summary of the hearings was prepared by Rick Hinshaw, the league’s director of communications. To read it click here.
